Painful movement can be frustrating and limiting to your daily activities. If you are spending time wondering why your body isn't functioning at its best, a biomechanical assessment can be a valuable tool. Offered by our team here at Gosforth Physio & Wellness in Newcastle, this assessment can help you to understand the reasons behind your discomfort and improve your movement efficiency, ultimately leading to pain-free movement.

What is a Biomechanical Assessment?

A biomechanical assessment is a comprehensive analysis of your body's mechanics, focusing on how your lower limbs function during movement. Our biomechanical assessments in Newcastle go beyond simply looking at the area of pain. We take a holistic approach, considering a number of factors within each assessment:

·       Past injuries: Understanding your injury history helps us identify potential contributing factors.

·       Lower limb examination: This includes a detailed evaluation of your feet, pelvis, legs, and knees, assessing their alignment and relationship to each other.

·       Joint range of motion: We assess the flexibility and movement capabilities of your hips, knees, and ankles.

·       Muscle strength and weakness: Identifying any muscle imbalances that can contribute to pain.

·       Leg length discrepancy: Checking for any differences in leg length that may cause alignment issues.

·       Gait analysis: This involves observing your walking or running pattern to identify any abnormalities in your gait cycle.
