Biomechanical Assessment

Your foundation matters— elevate your comfort with a biomechanical assessment.

Beyond the Surface

Your feet are the foundation of your entire body. Not only do they influence how you walk (your gait), but they play a significant role in your overall musculoskeletal health. Have you ever wondered why your gait feels a bit ‘off’ or you’ve been experiencing discomfort that won’t let up? Your biomechanics may have more to do with it than you thought.

Whether you’re an athlete looking to achieve their peak performance, somebody with persistent foot pain, or simply curious about how your feet affect your body, a biomechanical assessment may hold the answers you’re looking for.

Biomechanical Assessments by Capital Podiatry

At Capital Podiatry, we understand that your feet are unique. Nobody has the same foot mechanics— sometimes, one person’s two feet can even differ! That’s why we use a hands-on approach in all that we do, ensuring we cover every aspect of your feet’s journey to us.

During our biomechanical assessments, we discuss your health history with you and conduct a physical examination of your feet, including observing how you walk. By asking questions about your feet and any pain or injuries you may have, we aim to get a detailed overview of how your feet function.

We then perform a structural strength assessment to assess your range of motion, including in areas such as your knees and hips, and identify any weak areas you may have. We also aim to pinpoint any hypermobility or differences between your left and right limbs so we can understand how best to address these issues.

By looking at these factors and many others, our team aims to discover the most appropriate way to address your discomfort and get you back on your feet.
