Sports Biomechanics at Hills District Podiatry – What are sports podiatry and sports biomechanics?

Sports podiatry is a branch of podiatric medicine that specifically focuses on the treatment and management of lower limb and foot injuries relating to sporting activities. Sports biomechanics is a branch of science that examines the forces (both internal and external) that affect the mechanics of human movement.

At Hills District Podiatry, our podiatrists are highly trained in the field of sports biomechanics, and using a number of specialised tools, we can make a thorough biomechanical assessment of your feet and lower limbs.

Our fully qualified podiatrists are experienced in treating sports related injuries of the feet, as well as managing those injuries in the long term. We always work hard to provide our patients with effective treatments and solutions that are suited to the patient, their lifestyle, and their sport.

Sports Biomechanics at Hills District Podiatry – How we make an assessment

Sports biomechanics uses a variety of techniques and tools to assess and ultimately improve sports performance. At Hills District Podiatry, our experienced sports podiatrists use specialised video gait analysis along with various other measurements to make a thorough biomechanical assessment of your lower limb. Our podiatrists analyse your lower limb and foot position whilst non-weight bearing, standing, and walking or running.

Applying principles of sports biomechanics, the video technology allows your podiatrist to examine how you walk or run in very fine detail. The detailed footage, along with measurements of your muscle strength, joint mobility, flexibility and overall alignment, allow your sports podiatrist to determine the mechanics of your feet and legs as you move.
