Welcome to our gait analysis clinic

Clinical Services

At our clinic we can treat and resolve a range of conditions which will give you relief from pain and improve your quality of life.

How do we do this?

The first step is to give us a call – in some instances just some simple free advice over the phone is all that is required.

If further help is needed we may suggest semi-customised orthoses (Insoles) and which can resolve your symptoms without further intervention.

Finally, in more complex cases, a visit to Alveley may be suggested where a full assessment, casting for prescription orthoses if appropriate and referral to other specialists eg for an ultrasound scan, injection therapy, may be arranged.

The cost of the initial assessment and gait analysis will be advised when the appointment is made and the cost of orthoses, if needed, will be advised at this appointment. The assessment includes taking a full history, looking at your gait, reviewing footwear and discussing other possible treatment modalities.

Prefer to see us in a day? A full assessment and fitting of casted orthoses can be completed in a day at no additional cost.

Conditions Diagram

Several conditions in the lower limb can be related to biomechanical dysfunction (i.e. poor posture of the foot and leg) and can be treated effectively through the use of orthoses (prescription insoles). By treating the causes of these conditions symptoms will resolve quicker, will be less likely to re-occur and you will be able to return to normal activities including sports.
