Biomechanics

The study of human movement

At GRM Podiatry we treat the whole body and not just the feet.   The feet, legs and pelvic area are constantly being stressed during everyday activities and exercise.  As with anything mechanical, the body can suffer breakdowns and faults which require specialist intervention. GRM Podiatry prides itself on providing the highest quality healthcare to restore the normal working dynamics of the body.

Walking and running use a repetitive sequence of limb movements to advance the body forward while at the same time maintaining stability. Any weakness in the supporting muscles, limitation of movement, body asymmetry or poor technique will increase the stress on the soft tissues and bone, potentially leading to injury. And remember: the more demanding the task, the greater the risk of injury.

Injuries can be caused by many factors, both internal and external to the body. They may develop gradually or with sudden onset. When you know something is not right, it probably isn’t. Don’t delay and seek specialist intervention.
