Sports podiatrists (or musculoskeletal podiatrists) primarily focus on the way the foot interacts with the ground and try to consider the loads or forces that the lower limb must contend with during high impact sporting activity. This is often also referred to as ‘biomechanics’, which is essentially the application of mechanical principles to living organisms.
Sports Podiatrist Appointments
An appointment with a sports podiatrist in Melbourne may involve:
- Movement analysis to identify potential risk factors for future injury
- 3D Biomechanics/video gait analysis to assess lower limb movement patterns
- Joint mobilisations or sports taping
- Evaluation of existing footwear
- Injury diagnosis and implementation of an appropriate management and treatment plan
- Provision of foot orthoses to reduce damaging forces within injured tissues
- Recommendation of diagnostic imaging including X-Rays, MRIs, or CT scans
- Onward referral to other specialists for further investigations
