A Musculoskeletal assessment uses up-to-date podiatric knowledge with leading technology to assess and identify the underlying causes of common foot problems.
A Musculoskeletal assessment includes a non weight bearing assessment of joint range of movement,muscle testing and a static assessment of your posture. It also includes walking and/or running gait analysis using digital video equipment to allow in-depth study of any abnormalities found and plantar pressure measurement to allow the Podiatrist to actually see the forces under your feet as you stand and walk, or run. A footwear assessment is also included. After the assessment, a treatment plan is then given and often includes the use of orthotics or a shoe recommendation.
A Musculoskeletal Assessment is required for:
- Knee Pain
- Shin Pain

- Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis)

- We focus on Musculoskeletal assessments, investing in knowledge and technology that improves our clinical skills in this speciality.
- Foot Mechanics uses a digital lab for orthotic fabrication. This means orthotics are made perfectly for a patient's feet. There is no guesswork or “art meets science” as your foot shape is captured perfectly. This results in improved orthotic function and comfort.
