  • Advisor to ‘Dance UK’ on performance medicine
  • Gait assessments for children and adults

Problems when walking, running or dancing at any age can be worrying enough, but can be disastrous if this affects your quality of life, health or livelihood.

Scott Corthine is highly regarded in the field of biomechanics and applies the principles of physics and engineering to body movements, usually walking and running, to improve gait and resolve problems at their root cause for all the family. Scott has worked with adults and children with a wide variety of disabilities, health problems, athletic disciplines and professional dancers for many years. He has been consultant to many West End Productions and Producers and continues to sit on the Medical Advisory Board of the charity ‘Dance UK’, who look after the interests of professional dancers, advising on Performance Medicine.

Scott offers long-term solutions for a wide variety of foot and leg problems associated with walking and running, be they through ill health, disabilty, sport or performance. Our biomechanical assessments allow Scott to find out where problems such as lowering arches, early bunion formation, hard skin and corns, odd sensations in bones and muscles or recurring injuries arise. By understanding your unique gait Scott can suggest ways forward to improve walking patterns and reduce short and long term problems associated with abnormal forces over time. At the assessment Scott aims to:

 

  1. Identify the underlying cause of your problems or concerns.
  2. Discuss what can be done to help, including any options.
  3. Explain what treatment may realistically be expected to be achieved.

 

The cost of our Biomechanics Assessment is £80

When attending a biomechanical assessment with Scott a checklist includes:

  1. Wear loose trousers that can be rolled above the knees, or bring some shorts to change in to.
  2. Bring in anything you have been given in the past, such as old orthoses or insoles, even if they did not help.
  3. Bring in a selection of shoes that you normally wear. Your ‘9-5’ shoes, shoes you wear through your work or your sport and dress shoes if these are important to you.
  4. Bring a list of anything you think is relevant, such as a history of any injuries, surgery or medication you are taking.
