What to expect at a Biomechanical/ MSK Assessment
When attending an appointment for a Biomechanical/ Musculoskeletal Assessment It is important that you bring a selection of your most regularly worn footwear for our Podiatrist to assess and a pair of shorts to change into for your examination this will enable our Podiatrist to give you a full examination and check your posture, muscular and joint function as necessary.
At the assessment our Podiatrist will start by taking a detailed history of the problem and may include a visual assessment of a selection of your existing footwear, a lying, seated and standing assessment of your posture, feet and lower limbs including joint movement, muscle strength and foot shape. You may be asked to stand and walk/run across a Dynamic Footscan plate to identify areas of high pressure on your feet or anomalies in your gait.
Once our Podiatrist has completed your assessment, they will give you a diagnosis of your problem and discuss the treatment options available to reduce your pain and improve your function.
Our Podiatrist will provide a bespoke treatment plan for you to take away summarising the advice and information that has been discussed and suggesting your next steps.
