The feet provide the primary surface to which interaction with the environment during locomotion takes place. Thus, it is important to diagnose foot problems at an early stage for injury prevention, risk management & general wellbeing (Razak et al, 2012).
With foot or ankle related pain/injury it is necessary to get a clear picture of foot mechanics & pressure distribution, which can be vital when dealing with medical conditions such as diabetes where excessive mechanical stress on the plantar surface of the foot is a risk factor for ulceration & related foot complications or injuries that have occurred as a result of prolonged loading, increased pressure, force or footwear related problems.
Our 45 minute consultation provides RS Scan pressure analysis with in depth information of the pressure & force distribution & their association with the biomechanics of the foot. This information gives our clinician a better understanding with regards to
