Biomechanics is the study of human motion. The study of biomechanics is important when determining what causes injuries and therefore how we can prevent them re-occurring. This is important in athletes as it can be a major cause in recurrent injuries. It is equally important in those of us who need help with walking, as poor mobility can cause tensions in other areas of the body.
TheBodyWorks Osteopathy works alongside Footworks Podiatry Practice. The podiatrist can give you access to a state of the art computerised foot pressure mapping system to ascertain your field of motion.
They can then manufacture custom made orthotics and insoles. Orthotics can compensate for deformities and other anomalies to add support and relieve foot and back pain.
