What is a biomechanical assessment?
How do I know if I need a biomechanical assessment?
 
Biomechanical Assessments are functional movement tests designed for active people of all abilities and anyone interested in sport and exercising, from athletes to social runners of any age (from 10 years old).
Are you suffering from pain in your feet, legs, knees, hips, pelvis or spine?
Do you think you may benefit from orthotics or you have had orthotics in the past?
Are you currently struggling to shake off an injury?
Are you looking to prevent injuries or optimise your body and movement?
Are you curious to understand the potential causes of your injuries?
Have you taken up a new sport or looking to make a return to sport?
Are aches and pains preventing you from exercising?
