Problems when walking, running or dancing are always a serious problem, but can be disastrous if this affects your quality of life, health, or livelihood.

Signs of bunions, clawing of the toes, joint pains in the foot, ankle, knee and hip, hard skin formation and recurring injuries could all be signs of problems because of imbalance, malalignment and pressures as our bodies change.

Biomechanical Assessment

We seek long-term solutions for a wide variety of foot and leg problems and perform an assessment to:

  • Identify the underlying cause of your problems or concerns.
  • Discuss what they can do┬áto help, including any options.
  • Explain what he feels treatment can realistically achieve.

When attending a biomechanical assessment, our checklist includes:

  • Wear loose trousers that can be rolled above the knees, or bring some shorts to change in to.
  • Bring in anything you have been given in the past, such as old orthoses or insoles, even if they did not help.
  • Bring in a selection of shoes that you normally wear, including your 9-5 day shoes and any used for specific sports.
  • Bring a list of anything you think is relevant, such as a history of any injuries, surgery or medication you are taking.



Once we understand the underlying cause of your problems, we will explain how we can help. This may involve stretches, exercises, manipulations, physiotherapy or orthoses (insoles that support and control the way the foot moves to avoid problems). If further treatment or costs are involved, these will be explained to you. Our assessments are to find out the underlying cause of your problems to show us the possible ways forward. You will not be under any pressure to commit to any treatment you feel uneasy with. We are here to offer choices and help.


We have built our 30 year reputation working with exceptional professionals so you can have confidence in the advice and care you will receive.
