Unveiling the Precision: What to Expect in a Biomechanical Gait Analysis Appointment

Welcome to UK Podiatry and to the realm of our Biomechanical Gait Analysis – a fascinating journey into understanding the intricacies of your unique foot mechanics.

At our podiatry practice in Altrincham, we specialise in offering comprehensive biomechanical assessments, a process that plays a pivotal role in crafting custom orthotics tailored specifically to your feet.

In this article, we'll guide you through the enlightening experience of a biomechanical gait analysis appointment, shedding light on the assessment, analysis, and the intricate process of creating custom, carbon-fibre-based orthotics.

The Initial Consultation

Your journey begins with a warm welcome from our team of expert podiatrists. During the initial consultation, we take the time to get to know you, discussing your medical history, lifestyle, and any concerns or discomfort you may be experiencing. This helps us build a holistic understanding of your foot health and overall well-being.

Gait Analysis

The core of the biomechanical assessment lies in the gait analysis. We employ cutting-edge technology to observe and record your walking and running patterns. High-speed cameras capture every nuance of your movements, allowing us to analyse your gait in intricate detail. This process helps identify any irregularities, asymmetries, or abnormalities in the way you walk or run.

Foot and Lower Limb Examination

Our expert podiatrists conduct a thorough examination of your feet and lower limbs. This may include assessing joint range of motion, muscle strength, and flexibility. By combining the findings from the gait analysis with the physical examination, we gain a comprehensive understanding of your biomechanics.

Custom Moulds and Impressions

Once the analysis is complete, we move on to the creation of custom moulds and impressions. Our expert podiatrists use advanced techniques to capture precise measurements of your feet. These moulds serve as the foundation for crafting orthotics that are uniquely designed to address your specific biomechanical needs.

Sending Off to the Lab

The custom moulds are then sent off to our trusted lab, where skilled technicians use state-of-the-art technology to manufacture your custom orthotics. Our commitment to excellence ensures that each pair is crafted with precision and care, using high-quality materials such as carbon fibre for durability and support.

Follow-Up Consultation

After the orthotics are ready in around 2 weeks after your initial appointment, we schedule a follow-up consultation to ensure a perfect fit. Our podiatrists will make any necessary adjustments to guarantee optimal comfort and effectiveness. We also provide guidance on incorporating the orthotics into your daily activities for maximum benefit.

Embarking on a biomechanical gait analysis journey with us is a step towards unlocking the full potential of your foot health. Our expertise, coupled with advanced technology, ensures that you receive custom orthotics that not only address existing concerns but also enhance your overall well-being. Join us at our Altrincham practice, where tradition meets innovation, and let us guide you towards a more comfortable and balanced stride.
