If you’re experiencing chronic foot pain or discomfort, it may be time to consider a biomechanical assessment for your feet. This type of assessment, which is typically performed by a podiatrist or other foot specialist, can help identify any underlying problems with the way your feet move and function. Let’s discuss some of the common signs that you may need a biomechanical assessment. 

What is a Biomechanical Assessment?

A biomechanical assessment is a comprehensive evaluation performed by a podiatrist or other foot specialist to assess how the feet move and function. This assessment typically involves a physical examination of the feet, as well as a review of the individual’s medical history and any previous foot or ankle injuries. The podiatrist may also use equipment to evaluate the way the feet move during walking or running. The goal of this is to identify any underlying problems with the way the feet move and function and to provide appropriate treatment options to alleviate any pain or discomfort.
