LOWER LIMB BIOMECHANICAL ASSESSMENT INVOLVES IDENTIFYING THE SPECIFIC ANATOMICAL STRUCTURE IN QUESTION AND FINDING THE UNDERLYING RISK FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO INJURY.
Our Lisburn road clinic is one of the most advanced biomechanics labs in Ireland. We are big believers in using the latest technology to aid our diagnosis and management. The days of getting a patient to walk up a hallway as an assessment are gone!
Our biomechanics assessment is a one hour in depth look your gait cycle, we can find imperfections with everyones gait. However the skill is in deciding whether or not its contributing to your symptoms or a red-flag for future injury.
We will then email you your report with any recommended interventions. These may be a simple stretch and strengthening program, footwear change, soft tissue massage or custom carbon fibre orthotics.
If you do need custom orthotics we can provide 3d foot scanning as part of the assessment. You will be getting the most advanced orthotic available, they are totally custom made and have a life-time warranty. We design our orthotics using carbon fibre materials, making them super thin and light. We recently have designed orthotics for professional footballers and cyclists.

I’ve been a client of Paul’s at Head2Toe Practice for a number of years now. Paul is a highly skilled professional with a warm and friendly manner that instantly puts one at ease. Yesterday he carried out nail surgery on both of my big toes for chronic ingrown toenails that have been causing me problems. I only wish I had taken his advice sooner to have it done! The procedure was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I wholeheartedly recommend Paul’s podiatry services and I look forward to a future with permanently-pain free big toes!
