What are Postural Assessments?
Biomechanical Assessments examine the mechanics of one’s body, especially the forces exerted by muscles and gravity on the skeletal structure. This allows Apex Physiotherapy East Fremantle and other locations to look at the whole body in terms of posture and movement so as to determine the underlying cause of the symptoms and devise appropriate treatment strategies.
Our Physiotherapists are highly trained in assessing and treating postural abnormalities and although a lot of the time these conditions can be minor and easily treated it is important to be assessed by a qualified physiotherapist to rule out any more serious pathologies.
How does it apply to our feet?
Ever important in how we distribute force through the body our feet play a large part in how we maintain our posture. Sometimes we need some assistance to maintain good foot position, this is where orthotics come into play.
Orthotic Prescriptions – Apex Physiotherapy are able to provide orthotic therapy using modular products. See our products page for further information.
