Bio Mechanical Assessment

We offer bio mechanical assessments in both our Liverpool & Newton Le Willows clinics

A biomechanical assessment is most commonly used to assess running style.  We look at your own individual style to see if there are any modifications that can assist you in moving more effectively and thus improve movement patterns and overall running performance.

Using slow motion video footage while you run on a treadmill we can analyze how well you move. Key areas to be noted are:

  • Foot placement
  • Ankle range of movement
  • Lower limb position and control
  • Stride length
  • Step width
  • Lumbo Pelvic control
  • Trunk rotation
  • Shoulder postion
  • Head posture

This forms part of a more thorough assessment looking at:

  • Joint range of movement
  • Muscle flexibility
  • Static and dynamic joint control
  • Lower limb balance and proprioception

Based on our findings we can create a bespoke programme for you which can encompass

  • Physiotherapy treatment
  • Flexibility programme
  • Lower limb proprioception exercises
  • Lower limb strengthening programme
  • Core stability programme
  • Running drills
  • Advice re footwear
  • Advice re training loading
  • Running technique cues

So whether its you’re needing a bio mechanical assessment in Liverpool or Newton le Willows then get in contact with us today & one of the team will get back to you with how we can help you put your best foot forwards!
