Do you have pain in your feet, ankles or lower leg that is occurring for an unknown reason?

Our Biomechanical assessment may be what you need to get to the route of the issue and begin treatment.

The aim of a biomechanical assessment is to ascertain the route cause of your pain. At Abbeyhill Footcare your dedicated clinician will carry out a thorough run through of your joint mobility and range. As podiatrists we are specialists in dealing with foot pain, but our biomechanical expertise stretches far further up the body. We look at everything when analysing your walking gait - even your shoulders and arm swing can guide us. We check all your joints from the hips to your toes and test the strength and flexibility of any muscle that may be involved. Our main aim is to reduce the pain as soon as possible and get you back to what you enjoy doing the most.
