Biomechanics services are available to aid problems from bunion relief and treatment for knee pain. Finding the cause of the issue is often the first step towards treating it. Choose biomechanics and start your journey to better health today.
Concerned with the preservation, restoration, and development of the function of the foot and its associated structure, biomechanics aids with a variety of problems. Podiatrists use biomechanics to diagnose and treat the lower limb. Hana examines the way in which your lower limbs work, checking for abnormalities and possible causes of pain in the foot, ankle, knee, and back.
Very few people are completely symmetrical, and this affects the way that you stand or move. In some cases, people adapt to any abnormalities that they were born with. In others, the abnormalities can cause pain as the joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons are placed under stress. Abnormalities that can cause problems include high or low feet arches, sports injuries, and asymmetrical leg length. Once Hana identifies the problem, she provides advice on orthotics and made-to-measure insoles for your condition. Exercises that may aid with your condition are also provided.
Full tests can take up to 50 minutes and can identify possible causes of pain. Shorts need to be worn for Hana to properly see the knees and lower limbs as you move. Here is a list of common complaints that are treated:
Lower Back Pain
Aching and Over-Tired Feet
Ankle Sprains and Weaknesses
Over-Pronation (collapsing arch)
