During a biomechanical examination Dr. Schottenstein will examine how your lower limbs work, check for abnormalities and possible causes of pain in the foot, ankle, knee and back. After the biomechanical examination is performed, a dynamic Gait Analysis is usually conducted. Gait Analysis is an important part to understanding pathology because it allows us to examine the biomechanical conditions and dynamic forces that are affecting the foot and ankle while in motion.
