What is Biomechanics? Biomechanics is the science that examines forces acting on the body and the effects produced and the study of gait analysis in related to the foot and the lower limb. A person's abnormal stance and gait can be the cause of recurrent problems such as pain or limiting one from fully achieving a desired fitness level. Treating such conditions requires the specialist knowledge of a Podiatrist, who can perform a Biomechanical assessment, which is an examination of the foot and leg function and make individually tailored orthotics (insoles) and will offer specialist advice and work with the patient and in more complex cases other health care professionals to achieve the best possible results for you.
Inoles and Orthotics
Prescription orthotics are divided into two categories Functional orthotics are designed to control abnormal motion. They may be used to treat foot pain caused by abnormal motion; they can also be used to treat injuries such as shin splints, plantar fasciitis or tendinitis. Accommodative orthotics are softer and meant to provide additional cushioning and support. They can be used to treat diabetic foot ulcers, painful calluses on the bottom of the foot, and other uncomfortable conditions. At Herts Wellness Centre we use state of the art Gait analysis equipment to offer a comprehensive assessment and use the highest quality orthotics.The Scan Cast 3D system allows us to accurately capture full volumetric data in less than five seconds. How can an orthotic help me? The information gathered during your biomechanical assessment and your presenting chief complaints, activities, foot profile and overall well-being will help our podiatrist to determine if orthotics/insoles might be helpful. If orthotics are needed, your podiatrist will capture a three-dimensional image of each foot as per the above image. Those images, as well as any measurements obtained by your podiatrist, are used to create a set of bespoke orthotics/insoles that may improve your foot movement and lead to more comfort and mobility.
