Bio mechanics – application of mechanical principles to biological systems via the study of their structure & function.
Podiatrists can not only provide treatments but can look at the workings of the foot & implement risk prevention strategies, prescribe prophylactic treatment and provide a long term individual care plan.
Bio mechanics usually involves the prescribing of a foot orthosis to provide a long term permanent treatment or means of prevention.
Here at Victoria Road Podiatry we provide conservative treatments and functional foot orthosis. We do not have high tech video treadmill gait analysis and would refer complex conditions and sports injuries. We can, however evaluate the feet, legs and body position whilst weight bearing and low weight bearing and prescribe simple functional foot orthosis.
