Biomechanics / Orthotics

The mechanics of how we move around essentially involve the interaction between foot, ankle, knee, hip and lower back, and pain arising in any of these joints can not only impede movement, but can be a direct result of incorrect posture or gait.
Through our biomechanical assessment and orthotics services, we can identify the specific cause of the pain and movement restriction and develop a management plan to treat and correct the problems. The plan will typically involve a tailored physiotherapy programme and / or custom made orthotics.
Using the most up to date technology including 3D printing we are able to analyse movement with the highest accuracy using the latest force plate technology and gait video analysis.


Symptoms which are commonly treated using biomechanical assessment and orthotics include:

  • Foot pain, ankle pain, knee pain, hip pain, lower back pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Metatarsal pain
  • Bunions
  • Painful Diabetic foot
  • Heel Spurs
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Shin Splints
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Arthritic foot
  • Knee and hip arthritis

And many other potentially disabling/injury problems

The benefits of our biomechanical and orthotics services can be seen in improved posture and balance, enhanced efficiency of movement and the prevention of joint and soft tissue injury. And for the sportsperson, a general improvement in athletic performance.
