About The Biomechanics Lab

The Biomechanics Lab has a unique assessment process that defines your path to better health.

  1. Positive outcomes rely on an accurate diagnosis

They take the time to understand you as an individual, your history and the history of your presenting problem, so they can design the appropriate analysis to understand the cause of your problem. Only once the cause is known, can a solution be provided.

2. 3D motion capture technology is used with every patient

To truly understand why you have pain and symptoms, their Podiatrists take the time to analyse how you move, how your body adapts to the forces applied to it when you walk, run and jump, and how your muscles support your body when you are fatigued.

3. They provide you with the foundation for a long, healthy and active life.

Each patient is provided with a long-term plan that provides them not just with the resources to reduce pain and improve immediate function, but the education they require to empower them to take ownership of their health.
