Biomechanics and Gait Analysis
A biomechanical assessment is an investigation into your lower limb function. It involves a number of key elements and tests that are used to obtain a clear overview of the body’s movement behaviour, restrictions and possible compensations that are taking place.
The different elements that make up a thorough biomechanical assessment include:
Joint range of motion testing
Muscle strength testing
Static postural assessment
Dynamic assessment (walking/running analysis)
Functional testing (review the body’s ability to perform certain movements)
Flexibility testing (muscle elasticity)
The results of a biomechanical assessment are used to generate a diagnosis and treatment plan.
