Biomechanical & Sports Assessments

Biomedical assessments help assess your foot injury problems and diagnose them accordingly. This means that we can refer you to other health professionals if required or provide tailored treatment plans.

If you’re experiencing a dull ache at the front of your lower leg, you’re most likely suffering from shin splints. This is primarily the case if the pain develops during exercise and convulses down the side of the shin bone. In this instance, Dean may assign specialist shoe inserts that adjust your gait when running and provide a strength and stretching plan which is supplemented by regular physical therapy.

Alternatively, you may be suffering from extreme heel pain. The ideal focus of treatment would be to reduce inflammation and tenderness that usually accompanies this injury – which is otherwise known as Plantar Fasciitis. Namely, we will provide tape and strap support to reduce strain on the plantar fascia tissue and arrange physical therapy sessions to improve your motion abilities.
