Rarely do we find that our left and right sides are symmetrical. Many of us even have mild deformities such as changes in spinal curvatures, torsion in the pelvis, anatomical differences in the joints of the legs or even one leg longer than the other.
When we stand, walk or run our body has to cope with and compensate for these anomalies. It is these compensatory measures that put structures such as muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons under undue strain as they begin functioning in an abnormal or compromised manner. Over time the structures become inflamed or injured.
An assessment of biomechanics is an investigation into how the body functions, looking closely for abnormalities and compensatory strategies. Our Physiotherapists will look closely into the underlying cause of your pain or injury including foot or heel pain, hip or knee pain, shoulder pain or back pain.
Once the cause of your problems are identified, our Physiotherapists can develop a tailor made treatment plan to improve your symptoms.
