“Just thought I would let you know that I had a very successful weeks skiing in Verbier and got back last weekend. Weather fantastic and knee held up very well. Many, many thanks.”

“I couldn't ask for a better surgeon than Neil, he has honestly changed my life in 1 year and I can't thank him enough.”

“I would sincerely like to thank you and your team for the work you did on my knee after the x-ray revealed a 'nasty' break. Your expertise has given me back the use of this leg and I can now walk unaided for half a mile or more. The previous knee operation has also been a complete success.”

“The process from start to finish was smooth and efficient. I always knew where I was in the process, what to expect and when. A thoroughly professional service with a smile.”

“Pre-op information first class. Post-op conditions also first class. Very successful operation.”

“I am now in week 6 after the operation on my knee and I feel I must express my admiration for your skill and delight at the result. I am walking well and striding confidently into a bright new future. Many thanks.”

“Recovery from my knee operation was much quicker than expected. By 10 months I hardly knew I'd had problems with my knee. Able to walk properly again without any thought.”

“Care very good. Mr Bradbury was faultless. Would have liked to see specialist physiotherapist, Genevieve, all through my recovery as she was very helpful. Saw her at 6 months after my knee operation.”

“Mr Bradbury did a fantastic job on my left knee. At 75 I now have my life back!”

“You all did so much to relieve my anxiety and concerns with my knee replacement. I shall remember you with gratitude every time I walk the dog in the future. Thank you”

Biomechanical assessment

Biomechanical assessment

 

A biomechanical assessment involves an examination of the lower limbs, looking at their structure, alignment, strengths and weaknesses.

The examination focuses on the foot, pelvis, legs and knees, assessing the relationship between them. It is important to examine the lower limbs as a whole because they are closely connected and pain in one area can be due to a weakness or structural problem in another area. A biomechanical assessment is a starting point for understanding the cause of your problems and provides a comprehensive understanding of any underlying issues in the lower limbs.

The lower limb kinetic chain can be influenced by any joint segment; the biomechanics assessment aims to highlight these compensatory movements through gait analysis assessment, allowing the specialists to make the right decisions about the treatment that is right for you.

We take a multi-disciplinary approach to the biomechanics assessment and work closely with other members of the clinical team. Our physiotherapists work with you on exercises to improve muscle strength or flexibility however, if appropriate, you may also be referred to an osteopath, sports doctor or rheumatologist. Patient may also be referred for imaging such as X-rays, MRI’s or CT-scans.

By working alongside knee surgeons, we ensure conservative approaches are used, where appropriate, but can offer surgical treatment when required.
