What is a bio-mechanical assessment?

If you have pain in your feet when walking or running then you will probably need a bio-mechanical assessment. The podiatrist will look at the positioning of your hips, knees, ankles and feet whilst walking. If there is a problem with the positioning of the lower limbs then it disturbs the bio-mechanics of walking or running and this is what causes pain. Using orthotics can usually help alleviate this problem.
