Running and walking assessments are performed using video gait analysis
In terms of Podiatry we are looking at the feet, however it is impossible to look at the feet without considering the influence of the knees, hips and even torso. They are all connected. A thorough Podiatry assessment includes looking at the body as a whole – and from our perspective from the feet up! A detailed understanding of movement patterns in the body, provides reason as to why injuries and pain are occurring.
What can you expect from your Podiatry consult
- Video gait analysis (with and without shoes)
- Postural analysis
- Dynamic and functional gait assessment
- Static observations of joint range of motion and positioning
- Use of hand held dynamometers for muscle strength testing
- Functional rehabilitation programs

What about biomechanics in sport?
The things we look at: the right leg collapses into internal rotation, dynamic knee valgus and pronation of the foot, compared to a quite straight positioned left leg
