The biomechanics team assesses a range of foot and lower limb conditions which include, foot and ankle, leg and lower back pain. The clinical assessment may include joint assessments as well as gait analysis. The patient is required to attend their appointment with a skirt or a pair of shorts to enable easy observation of the legs. The treatment program may include an exercise regime, orthotic devices, footwear modification, steroid injection therapy or acupuncture. The provision of orthotic devices would require the patient to attend with appropriate low heeled footwear with an effective fastener, for example lace up, velcro or buckle fastener.
