Do you have a "stronger" side? Do you feel one side of your back and pelvis tightens up or feels stiff after a hard training session? Is it always one side of your body more prone to injuries and niggles? Do you want to push your performance and feel more comfortable training and performing? Then a biomechanical assessment and gait analysis could be vital to underpinning the causes of these problems.
A biomechanical assessment involves an in depth and complex evaluation of your pelvis, knees, ankles and feet. It takes into account how your weight load is transferred through your joints and bones and how these interact with your working muscles, tendons and fascia.
When combining this weight transfer with gait, poor posture, biomechanical issues and forces such as velocity and gravity, injuries can easily occur. It is vital we discover these underlying biomechanical issues, in order to help treat these injuries and more importantly stop them from re-occurring.
Here at Stansfield Sports Injury Clinic we provide biomechanical assessments with video software to assess your movement and gait, in stationery, standing, and sitting and throughout a variety of different sporting movements if required. We can break this footage down into phases and analyse how your body is performing. Your ankle and foot joints are very complex and a variety of articulations occur in your walking gait. With the addition of the impact and velocity in the running gait, the ankle and foot need adequate stability and strength that a tailored insole can provide.
Common injuries linked to biomechanical imbalances include; Bursitis, tendinitis, tendinopathy, plantar fasciitis, patella femoral pain, low back pain, and recurrent muscular strains.
