Biomechanics Clinic (of the lower limb)
Many of the injuries dealt with in the Biomechanics clinics have often failed to respond to other treatments and/or are long-standing or recurrent. Often, there is no indication or recollection of a specific injury.
The aim of the examination is to determine the underlying cause of symptoms by uncovering any mechanical or anatomical faults in the lower limb or foot. Approximately one hour is needed for this in-depth examination. The aim of treatment is to rectify the leg/foot alignment and restore normal function. This can be achieved by applying a variety of methods, such as corrective orthotics, footwear advice, specific exercises or combinations of these.
