We take a very holistic approach to your care, and when we assess you to get to the root of your problem, we make sure we consider everything. Obviously, if you come to see us with foot pain: plantar fasciitis, achllies tendon injuries, foot pain, then we’ll looking very closely at your feet.
However, there are many other problems further up your body that issues with your feet can contribute to. If you’re suffering from back pain, hip or groin issues, running injuries or even headaches, we will want to see if your feet are playing a part. Your foot position and its biomechanics play a crucial role in the health of your entire body and skeleton.
To help analyse this, we have invested in the TOG GaitScan™ system, the industry leader in dynamic foot scanning. Gaitscan gives us access to a wealth of information about your foot position whilst you’re walking, that cannot be obtained with the naked eye, video analysis or traditional orthotic moulds.
The Gaitscan system measures how your foot functions as you walk across the pressure plate, identifying it’s compensations and contribution to your injuries or performance issues. Combined with a physical assessment, our Physio’s are able to integrate their findings to recommend whether you’d benefit from orthotics.
Do I have to pay extra to get a scan done?
Absolutely not! If we feel you’d benefit from orthotics, we will carry out a Gaitscan analysis as part of your care. You can even come along for a free Gaitscan if you aren’t having any treatment with us but are interested to have the workings of your feet analysed.
What do I get after a GAITSCAN™?
Your physio will provide you with a really compressive report that outlines and demonstrates key features of your foot biomechanics. Your physios will pull together the Gaitscan findings with their physical assessment and your story and then then be able to discuss with you of your feet are playing a part in your problem.
What if orthotics are recommended?
Your Physio will discuss the options with you. If you’d benefit from orthotics you can choose between ‘off the shelf’ orthotics or customised. There are differences in quality, durability and price, but we will help you decide what’s the best option for you, without pressure or obligation. Our ‘off the shelf’ orthotics are £65 and custom made orthotics are £395.
If you think you could benefit from orthotics, then give us a call to book in for a no obligation Gaitscan.
