Biomechanical assessment

Many of us experience aches and pains that we cannot explain nor find a cause. A biomechanical assessment allows a specialist to closely assess and monitor human movement and ascertain the root cause of your issue. Conditions that biomechanical assessments work well for include : knee pain, hip pain, buttock pain, ankle pain, back pain and more specifically Achilles tendinitis, patellar tendinitis, shin splints, trochanteric bursitis, foot pain, sciatica and thigh pain. The assessment consists of three stages:

  • Physical assessment
  • Video assessment
  • Force plate assessment

Biomechanical assessment at ctchealthcare

Treating your body from a holistic perspective means that the cause of any injury needs to be accurately pinpointed and often this can be difficult. Biomechanical assessments focus on assessing your body in great depth, allowing our Physiotherapists to accurately pinpoint the cause of injuries and highlight how to correct or eradicate it.

Using state-of-the-art technology the Physiotherapist will examine alignment, weight distribution, walking, running and leg length to name a few. The most common outcome is the creation of bespoken and perfectly fitted orthotics to correct problems including flat feet, back pain and knee pain.

Unless the cause is established, your problems are likely to persist or become recurrent. Common injuries that can occur if your biomechanics are not working properly include:

  • Muscle imbalance of feet and legs
  • Ankle pain
  • Discomfort in the balls of the feet
  • Lower back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain

So if you are suffering from any of the above you could benefit from ctchealthcare’s biomechanical assessment.
