Biomechanics is the study of forces and their effects on the human body in movement and at rest.
Podiatric biomechanics can be best described as the total assessment of the lower limb to define a diagnosis, ascertain the cause and prescribe an intervention, usually an orthotic, which is a prescription made insole.
A biomechanical prescription orthotic is a carefully constructed device that fits into your shoe and controls your foot motions and weight distribution as you walk and run, helping to reduce pain.
In your initial consultation, Mr Mann will assess your condition and advise as to the best course of treatment. If this is custom made orthotics then he will book you in for a full biomechanical evaluation and scan. He uses the latest in scanning technology to accurately create a prescription orthotic fitted specifically to your foot. When the orthotic is ready to collect, Mr Mann will fit it to your shoes to ensure the correct fit. It is common to then return for periodic check-ups to assess the progress of your condition.
