BIOMECHANICS AND ORTHOSES

BIOMECHANICS AND ORTHOSES

Podiatrists study biomechanics of the feet and lower limb so they can provide anatomical assessment of patients to detect abnormalities such as flat feet, high or fallen arches and ankle, hip and knee abnormalities.

Abnormalities can be corrected through prescription foot orthoses (shoe inserts) and/or specific exercises to strengthen certain muscles or groups of muscles.

Orthoses should be custom made and fitted for patients with abnormalities. Everyone is unique, and we can advise you on the most appropriate option.

It is important that podiatric assessment is made otherwise the problem maybe exacerbated by self treatment.

- Orthotics can Improve weight distribution and posture.
- Optimise shoe fit and comfort & absorb shock.
- Help your child’s foot grow in a correct position, helping to prevent abnormalities developing and preventing pain.
- We believe in preventative care by assessing children, to avoid further problems developing in adulthood
- Help stop low back pain, hip and knee pain from malalignment of joints.

It is important that podiatric assessment is made otherwise the problem maybe exacerbated by self treatment.

Stretching Advice

Stretching Advice

The aim of stretching is to gently lengthen muscles and tendons to improve the active range of motion of the bodies joints. If done correctly, stretching will help prevent injuries and increase athletic performance.

The Podiatrist can identify areas of muscle/tendon tightness and assist you with stretching for your particular needs.
