Biomechanics

marathon_runnersThe human foot is designed to function on soft surfaces, but as human society has developed, we now spend every day walking on hard flat surfaces creating adaptive changes in human mechanics and causing long term wear and tear to our feet, knees and backs.

Podiatrists at The Lawrence Clinic and in conjunction with both the Physiotherapy and Chiropractic Departments specialise in the study of your body’s movements during standing, walking and running and the effects of these movements on our skeletal system whilst adopting a ‘team approach’ in your management and care.

Foot and ankle pain can be caused by a Biomechanical dysfunction and abnormal gait or walking pattern due to structural or muscular imbalances, the primary cause of which may not just be at foot/ankle level, but as a consequence of mechanical problems, be associated with the leg, knee, hip or low back.
