BIOMECHANICS IS THE STUDY OF HUMAN MOTION.
RELATING TO GAIT IT IS SPECIFICALLY, THE MOTION OF THE FOOT AND LEG IN STRIDE AND HOW IT AFFECTS THE KINETIC CHAIN.
New Computer Technology in the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal biomechanics such as the Performance Orthotics System has been instrumental in the improved resolution of such problems. The invention of computer analysis - whereby the forces of patient's feet are measured as they walk across a computerized mat, provides an accurate analysis of those forces on all areas of the foot. The Performance System will instantaneously evaluate normal versus abnormal forces on a weight bearing foot, and determine most mechanical foot faults in seconds.
Our friendly and knowledgeable staff want to get to know you and make you feel as comfortable as possible.
We will ask you to fill out our "Welcome Form". This background information is essential in helping us make a fully informed decision in terms of outlining an orthotic treatment plan if one is required. Are you experiencing pain? Where does the pain occur? What increases your symptoms? What have you tried to do to reduce your symptoms? These are just a few of the questions we ask.
As part of your assessment our trained clinician will watch you walk looking for the mechanical faults that are contributing to your symptoms.
Our Performance Orthotics technology instantanaeously gives us feedback on your foot function verifying any mechanical problems.
We believe that educating our patients is an integral component of the assessment process. It is our goal to help you understand how poor mechanics contribute to your symptoms and identify ways to address these problems in turn reducing your symptoms.
