If you suffer from chronic foot, ankle, knee or lower back pain, a biomechanical assessment can help you identify the underlying mechanical
causes of common foot and lower limb problems, such as heel and arch pain, ankle pain, leg cramps, knee pain, hip pain and lower back pain.

Biomechanical - Gait Analysis Assessment London
At Flawless Feet, we carry out an in-depth biomechanical foot assessment to determine the causes of any lower limb pain and provide you with a bespoke treatment or rehabilitation plan to eliminate any pain or discomfort.
What happens during the assessment? We will observe and measure the range of joint motion, muscle strength and flexibility, looking for misalignments in the feet, legs, pelvis and shoulders. We will also assess the way you stand and walk, taking into consideration your footwear and lifestyle in general.
The full assessment will examine and test:
● Range of motion through the joints
● Proprioception (balance)
● Muscle strength testing
● Foot Posture Index
● Affected structures with palpation
● Force and pressure
● Frequently worn footwear
As part of the assessment, we use video gait analysis to obtain the most accurate diagnosis of the way you walk and run. This is achieved by recording your range of motion on a treadmill or across the floor, while you perform different walking paces as well as running. The analysis enables us to detect the contact and flight times of your normal gait cycle and diagnose some of the most complex gait abnormalities.
When the assessment is completed, we will provide you with a personalised treatment plan, which may include prescription orthotics, footwear recommendations and a bespoke exercise rehabilitation programme.
Orthotics or foot orthoses, are specially designed shoe inserts that help support the feet and improve foot posture. They comfortably fit into your shoes and are a pain-free solution to improve the functioning of your feet.
They can be prescribed for many biomechanical foot disorders such as high arches, pronation (flat feet), bunions, arch pain, morton’s neuromas and Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain).
Their aim is to correct dysfunctional biomechanics and hence:
● reduce pain
● provide support
● prevent or halt the development of foot deformity
● provide better positioning
● relieve pressure on a certain area of the foot
● improve the overall biomechanical function of the foot
● improve pelvic alignment
● reduce lower limb torsion and knee stress
