Biomechanical assessments involve a range of tests which include weight bearing and non-weight bearing activities designed to identify possible causes of your foot and lower limb pain. Typically the assessment would include a video gait analysis, passive & resisted muscle testing, skeletal alignment and joint ranges of motion assessment. The information gained from this assessment
Sports related injuries of the foot and lower limb can mostly be categorised into trauma or over-use related onset, with the vast majority of those injuries tend to fall into the category of over-use. Typically over-use type injuries are caused by either, poor technique, incorrect footwear and/ or over- training.
The unfortunate fact is that people with diabetes have the highest rate of lower limb amputation amongst the general population. Two of the main problems associated with foot complications and diabetes are, nerve damage (or a loss of feeling) as well as reduced circulation (or a loss of blood flow) to the feet.
Are those first few steps unbearable? Do you then feel better after a couple of minutes only to become painful again each time you stand after resting? Is your pain stopping you from enjoying your usual activities?
