Sports Podiatry

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).

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

  • Risk factors for injury
  • Causes of foot & ankle pain
  • Running Footwear
  • Foot orthosis

Our consultation is for anyone with a foot, ankle or lower leg related injury or those wanting a more in-depth assessment regarding running footwear. We provide a detailed history discussing any musculoskeletal issues, activity/training levels & general health, followed by

  • Lower limb strength, mobility & balance assessment
  • RS Scan pressure analysis 
  • Footwear assessment
  • 2D HD video analysis of lower limb

Following our sports podiatry consultation you will receive a summary report with main observations, foot pressure data, likely cause & diagnosis. A tailored exercise prescription plan along with advice on running footwear & foot orthoses, including recommendations & prescription is provided if required. . .
