The podiatrist will assess muscle strength, the range of motion at each joint and the different angles of the forefoot and rearfoot in relation to each other and the leg.
These include weight bearing, non-weight bearing and sometimes during walking/running and the analysis of the pressure under your feet. 
 Following a biomechanical assessment, your podiatrist will be able to provide you with a diagnosis and plan a treatment accordingly.
