What could podiatry for biomechanical problems involve?

A biomechanical assessment is usually carried out, this is where your podiatrist will look at the structure and function of your body and lower limb in relation to each other up the kinetic chain. Assessing for any asymmetries or abnormalities, checking for the range and quality of motion in the joints. They will examine you whilst seated, standing and walking, the information gained from the assessment will determine what treatment plan will be devised and may include:
