Biomechanical Assessment with Custom Bespoke Orthotics

The Leap

A biomechanical assessment along with a custom bespoke orthotic has different benefits depending on the desired outcome, the type of orthoses prescribed, and individual prescription. Orthotics modify the direction, amount and timing of the forces under your feet in order to balance stresses acting on your feet and legs. The aim of insoles and orthotics is to reduce any potentially damaging strain to allow you to be symptom and pain free. This appointment last 2 hours .

We carry our manual diagnostic tests which involves as full musculoskeletal screen as well as a computerised video gait analysis in addition to this we have access to a treadmill in our clinic, your running & walking pattern can be analysed enabling our podiatrists to offer accurate advice concerning the most appropriate orthotics for you.

We also carry out a gait scan using our TOG Gaitscan system with every biomehacnical evaluation. Improper foot motion may cause pain through the foot, or place extra pressure on the knees, hips and spine. The impressions feed into a computer which clearly displays areas of the foot which are under too much or little pressure. This information may guide our treatment towards manipulation of foot joints, low level laser, dry needling, taping etc. or indicate prescribing tailor-made orthotics designed for each foots’ needs.

We use advanced sensor technology and algorithms to precisely record your stride mechanics while your walking or runnign in your shoes. Shoe Analysis Metrics reports advanced metrics in 4 dimensions: Efficiency, Motion, Shock & Symmetry. This holistic view allows our podiatrists to precisely assess a runner’s style, quantify the impact of training on mechanics and identify trends.

Our practice also uses a 3-D scanner to capture data for the design of our orthotics.The 3d scanner can be used for the production of custom-made orthotics to help the correction of abnormalities caused by biomechanical dysfunction of the musculo-skeletal system.

As part of our unique biomechanical assessment we also use a hand held dynamometer, designed specifically for taking objective, reliable, and quantifiable muscle testing measurements. Modern adaptation of the time tested art of ``hands on`` manual muscle testing, the hand held dynamometer aids in diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disorders. it also enables us to objectively rather than subjectively assess if a rehabilitation programme is successfully targeting an affected structure. This is an additional to the functional muscle testing screening protocols we provide

The cost of the biomechanical assessment with bespoke orthotics is £370

Yes the price includes the consultation, 3d foot scan, fitting of orthotics and a 3 week review. If after the three week review the orthotics need adjusting then this is also included in this package.

The podiatrist will advise you If you need a injection, shock wave, acupuncture, k-taping, knee or foot support or other treatment options at this assessment for your particular problem.

yes all assessments result in exercise prescription which will be designed to be adapted over time.
