Immediately following surgery you may have swelling, pain, stiffness, loss of motion, weakness, decreased function, scar tissue development, and difficulty walking or going up and down stairs.

We See If An Altered Movement Pattern Exists And What Can Be Done To Fix It
A bio mechanical assessment is a study of your body’s movement patterns as you complete a specific task such as walking, jumping or throwing. It is the intent of this assessment to see if an altered movement pattern exists and if so what can be done to eliminate it.
Why might I need a bio mechanical assessment? Poor mechanics of the lower limb can lead to numerous lower limb injuries as the body attempts to compensate for deficiencies or abnormalities. Common injuries such as plantar fasciitis, anterior knee pain, achilles tendonitis, shin pain, and back pain - and many other lower limb or hip problems - can be worsened with poor lower limb mechanics. Injuries where this is a factor will tend to be chronic or recurrent.
What is involved in a bio mechanical assessment? The assessment is a structured scientific examination of the lower limb. You need to wear shorts and we look at your walking patterns, do various measurements, and analyze how your lower limb function is affected. For some cases we will use video and computer technology to study gait and the bio mechanics of running. We will also look at your shoes to determine wear patterns, both with everyday use and with sporting shoes. Finally, the findings are explained to you and recommendations are discussed.
Services Designed To Enhance And Restore Functions In Older Persons

. Access to comprehensive rehabilitative services is critical to the attainment of independent living and functional independence, which are fundamental goals of all people.
Certain illnesses that occur commonly in older persons can be associated with a decline in the individual's ability to function independently.
