Biomechanics and Gait Analysis

Biomechanics is the science of movement of the human body. It is the study of how muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments work together to produce movement. In podiatry this translates to how the legs and feet move loads and pressures that are acting on the body, from the feet all the way up to the hips.

Gait analysis involves your Podiatrist watching you walk to determine if there are any biomechanical factors preventing your optimal movement. Weakened or tight muscles, issues with technique and excessive force can have a detrimental effect on the body. This can cause pain, inflammation, swelling, tears and even fractures to the bones and tissues unable to tolerate the load. At Aevum Podiatry we conduct full biomechanical assessments, including gait analysis, to determine any deficiencies in your lower limb biomechanics and how these can be most effectively treated.

Some treatment options include:

  • Footwear advice/modifications
  • Stretching and strengthening guides
  • Strapping techniques
  • Dry needling
  • Shockwave therapy
  • Orthotic prescription


Orthotics are inserts placed into footwear to assist in rehabilitation, management and prevention of lower limb injuries. They are like a sling for the foot. When prescribed correctly, orthotics have been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of pain and discomfort in the lower back, hips, knees, ankles and feet.

Orthotics help by optimising the movement of the lower limb. By redistributing pressures and other forces, the body can function within its optimal range. This reduces the load on the areas of the foot that are injured or at risk of injury. This promotes healing and can relieve, or prevent pain, allowing you to stay on your feet during your busy day.

At Aevum Podiatry, a comprehensive biomechanical assessment is conducted to determine if Orthotics are required, and which form is best for you. If this assessment finds that you would benefit most from fully customised orthotics, an accurate model of your foot is generated using a three-dimensional digital scanner. Your Podiatrist uses this scan to create a customised prescription based on your biomechanics, injury, footwear and lifestyle needs.

While orthotics provide the support, stability, cushioning, and alignment necessary to keep the feet, ankles and lower limb comfortable, they do not act alone. Orthotics are most effective as a tool within a broader management

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a very effective leading-edge treatment for the rehabilitation of soft-tissue conditions. Shockwave therapy works by using high energy acoustic waves to penetrate tissue and promote the regeneration and repair of bones, tendons, muscles and other tissue.

The outcome of treatment includes:

  • Accelerated tissue repair
  • Cell growth
  • Pain relief
  • Improved mobility

Specific conditions that can be improved by Shockwave Therapy are:

  • Heel spurs
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Insertional pain
  • Chronic tendinopathy
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome
  • Calcifications
  • Non-union fractures
  • Achilles tendon tears and post-surgical ruptures

Shockwave Therapy FAQs:

Does Shockwave Therapy work?

Clinical studies have found that Shockwave Therapy has been successful in eliminating pain in up to 80% of patients with chronic pain where other treatments had failed. Shockwave Therapy can result in the following effects:

  • Formation of new blood vessels
  • Reversal of chronic inflammation
  • Stimulation of collagen production
  • Dissolution of calcified fibroblasts
  • Dispersion of “Substance P” (neuropeptide pain transmitter)
  • Trigger point release

Does the treatment hurt?

Most patients tolerate Shockwave Therapy extremely well and report only minor discomfort during treatment, which ceases as soon as treatment is finished. Treatments typically last 5 – 10 minutes.

How many treatments will I need and how often?

This is dependent on the injury and the individual. The effect of Shockwave Therapy is cumulative so you will likely need more than 1 treatment. Typically, 3 – 5 treatments are recommended, with 3 – 10 days between treatments. This is dependent on the tolerance of the patient and their tissue response.

Are there any restrictions after treatment?

It is recommended that patients refrain from physical activity, especially one that would involve the treated region, for about 48 hours following each treatment session.
