Sports Podiatry

With a passion for getting people moving again and moving better, the podiatrists here at The Biomechanics want nothing more than to help you feel better and achieve optimal performance. 

Treadmill gait analysis

Have you been running in pain for a while now? Do you find it hard to find the right shoes to wear? Have you just started running again and don't feel so great? 

A treadmill gait analysis is a great way to see how different people run. It enables the podiatrist to video the runner's gait and then watch the runner perform the movement in slow motion, frame by frame. A treadmill gait analysis gives the practitioner a great way to specifically identify possible contributing factors related to injuries and performance. It allows for the development of strengthening programs to be more specific towards the runners needs aiming to improve running technique and decrease the risk of injury.

Strength and conditioning

Unfortunately, chronic running injuries of the foot and lower limb are very common in many athletes. They can be extremely frustrating as often they cause a reduction in training, lengthy rehabilitation programs along with a loss in overall fitness. 

At the biomechanics podiatry we have a strong emphasis on strength and conditioning as a means for preventing sporting related injuries from occurring. We believe it is very important that all athletes not only perform strength and conditioning workouts as a means for the rehabilitation of current injuries but for preventative measures from new injuries from occurring.
