Biomechanical assessment

Heel, arch, forefoot, Achilles, shin, or knee pain that relates to tendons, muscles, bones, and joints are signs of musculoskeletal injury. This sort of pain can be triggered by an increase in activity such as walking or running and occupational overuse.

When it comes to solving musculoskeletal problems, we take a focused approach. We specialize in identifying the underlying mechanics associated with your pain through our comprehensive biomechanical assessment. We then draw up a plan to rebalance the way your feet distribute force. Oftentimes, that plan involves orthotics or a shift in footwear, both of which we’re able to provide. Regardless of your road to recovery, your Sydney Podiatry Practice will be with you every step of the way.

Common conditions

Knee Pain

When our feet roll inwards (called pronation), internal tibial rotation results, causing skewing of the knee joint and damaging the surrounding muscle structure.

Shin Splints

Shin splints generally result from excessive pronation, which causes traction of the tendons and results in tightness and pain in the shins.

Lower Back Pain

When our feet roll inwards (excess pronation) this causes an anterior tilt of the pelvis, which results in tightening of muscles and lower back pain.

Achilles Tendonitis

Excessive pronation increases the stress and traction placed on the calf muscles, causing inflammation and pain.

Improve your personal performance

At the Sydney Podiatry Clinic, we make plans to improve your personal performance, prevent injuries, treat injuries quickly, and provide counselling and guidance.

Sports such as soccer, futsal and tennis require instant turnovers and rapid stop-and-go movements that cause considerable strain and damage to muscles, ligaments, tendons or bones. These accumulated damages can lead to fatigue and injury.

At our Clinic, we will carry out plans and treatments that will improve the performance of each person, prevent injuries and get you back on the field quicker.
