Foot Pain

It is well known that if your feet are not performing properly (their biomechanics) it can not only lead to foot pain, but a host of other complaints, such as;

  1. Localized foot pain
  2. Bunions
  3. Hammer toes
  4. Arch/heel pain
  5. Leg/knee pain
  6. Hip and back pain

What do my feet have to do with it?

Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundation of a house, your feet support the weight of everything above them. When a small problem develops in your feet, a subtle change in the way you walk will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking and running mechanics. These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body, and lead to more serious problems. By using custom made orthotics your feet can be rebalanced, reducing pain and discomfort and returning you to your natural stride pattern.

Our advanced diagnostic equipment

To help provide the best and most accurate treatment within the clinic, I have recently invested in state of the art computerised foot scanning technology, called TOG GaitScan™System. By having the patient simply walk over an electronic sensor pad, this system detects how your weight is distributed over your feet, highlighting any areas that may indicate a potential problem. With this information, an orthotic innersole can be produced, supporting and correcting any problems detected.  The innersoles we produce are constructed from a material called Thermoplastic which, when compressed, will always spring back to its original shape, and will not degenerate with age. Therefore, our orthotics will support you for up to 10 years without needing to be replaced.
