Biomechanics in Belfast and Ballymena

“Biomechanics is the study of the movement of the bones and muscles and how they affect our walking, running and standing posture”. 

Gait and Posture Analysis helps to correct the ‘biomechanics’ of the feet, lower limbs and back. This plays an important role in the prevention of  injuries, healing existing injuries and improving sporting performance

Why have a Biomechanics Assessment?

Most people have a Biomechanics assessment because they are experiencing pain within the lower limb. This pain can be anywhere from the back down into the feet. You do not have to have a specific sports injury, it may just be pain which is present when walking or doing a specific movement.
Occasionally, people attend for a Biomechanical assessment in an attempt to improve posture or prevent/reduce the risk of injury or to improve sporting performance.
