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 and ankle pain such as plantar fasciitis or achilles tendon pain, then we’ll looking very closely at your feet. However, there are many other problems further up your body where foot issues can play a part.
If you’re suffering from shin pain, knee injuries, hip or groin pain we recommend checking out your feet to see if they may be part of the problem. We can carry out a computerised foot scan, that will show us exactly how your feet are working to support your body.
Orthotics are foot supports or insoles, that fit in your shoes to help your feet move and support you more efficiently. The aim of orthotics is to balance the foot into a neutral position. If it looks like your feet position may be part of the issue, we are able to prescribe custom orthotics which will help with your injury.

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 and assessment as a routine part of your care if you are already under treatment with us.
Even if you aren’t having any treatment with us but are interested in orthotics and to have the workings of your feet analysed you can come along for a Gaitscan analysis. If you would benefit from orthotics and decide to go ahead, the assessment fee will be deducted from our Gaitscan package price.

If you’d benefit from orthotics your under no obligation to buy. However if you’d like to proceed your Clinician will then discuss the options with you regarding the style, prescription modifications and fitting. The package price for custom made orthotics are £450.
