Specialized Medical Assessment
The biomechanical podiatric assessment is a specialized, extremely accurate and detailed evaluation that complements the podiatric evaluation through the application of the principles of mechanics and physics to the foot, to identify any deformities or dysfunctions responsible for incorrect foot support, incorrect walking or any pathologies.
This assessment makes it possible to identify (if necessary) the best orthotic or rehabilitative treatment or to flag situations that need further medical attention or instrumental tests.
The consultation always begins with themedical history, the collection of all the clinical information of the patient. Then, the podiatrist proceeds to the local examination of the foot when unloading (in a supine position, that is, in a horizontal position of the body, lying on an examination bed) and the biomechanical podiatric assessment, in a static and dynamic standing position (in a straight position respectively stationary and moving).
It is therefore a very precise assessment that examines the foot from every point of view.
This allows, if necessary, to design custom-made biomechanical orthotics, specifically made for that patient.
