Foot problems can cause damage to other areas of the body

Heel Pain

Your heals have a lot of weight to bear. Sometimes heel pain will resolve after a few weeks

Knee pain

Not far from the feet, a non- ideal walking or running pattern will extend to your knees

Hip Pain

Problems with your gait - such as leg length differences can cause hip pain and more

Foot pain

Sometimes caused by wearing inappropriate footwear, this can also be corrected with orthotics

PODIATRY

Podiatry involves gait analysis - analysing an individual's walking or running pattern and observing the anatomical relationships between the different segments of the foot.

 

Correction may be required using orthotics (custom made insoles) and exercise regimes, so preventing any further damage. As with walking, any sport will exacerbate a joint problem of foot, knee, hip or back. Early intervention is important in preventing long term problems. 

 

Following a biomechanical assessment, treatment of any anomalies may include appropriate stretching or strengthening of specific muscle groups and provision of orthotics/insoles.

 

Correct footwear is paramount and the combination of the shoe/orthotic/foot should be appreciated as an entire functional unit, being the first point of contact with the ground forces - which are exaggerated during sporting activities. 

BIOMECHANICAL ANALYSIS

Are you being affected by a non-advantageous walking or running pattern? If so, chances are that you are also suffering no small amount of discomfort. The great news is, that many of the effects of such problems can be easily corrected.

 

Biomechanical analysis systematically studies a persons walking or running pattern when in motion. Taking into account an individual's age size, weight and so on, sports physicians or podiatrists analyse gait by eye or with the help of specialist gait analysis equipment. Practitioners form biomechanical assessment of the muscle groups being affected by a non-advantageous walking or running pattern, shoe or other problem formed by the activity of the muscles and other body biomechanics.

 

Biomechanical analysis is used to assess, plan and treat individuals with conditions which affect their ability to walk. Biomechanical analysis is also commonly used in sports assessment to help athletes run more efficiently and to identify posture-related problems in people with injuries. As with walking, any sport will exacerbate a joint problem of foot, knee, hip or back. Early intervention is important in preventing long term problems. 

Treating problems can range from supplying bespoke orthotics to adults or children, to referrals to specialists. Great for knock-knees, leg length differences, ankle or hip pain, flat feet (fallen arches), those walking with bunions, or foot deformities and a must for any athlete or sports enthusiast, whatever their age.
