MSK

MSK looks at Biomechanics, the way your body moves. We particularly look at how the movements of your lower limb and foot affect the rest of your body. From that we can see if there is a mechanical issue causing pain or impacting on your gait. It is important that your feet are in good working order to prevent aches and pains in other areas of your body.

By looking at the way certain joints and muscles function we are able to determine if the way you are walking or running may be contributing to a current injury or may cause an injury in the future.
Subsequent stretches and exercises can be given to help or insoles/orthotics can be purchased if required.


Podiatrists treat many injuries of the feet and lower limbs, including:

  • Heel Pain
  • Arch Pain
  • Pain in Feet
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendon Injuries/pain
  • Big Toe Joint Pain and Bunions
  • Shin Pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle Pain
  • Leg Length differences
  • Lower Back Pain (if attributed to lower limb functional problems)

 

Sports:

People who undertake sports or physical activity regularly can suffer from a multitude of injuries and aches. Biomechanical assessments followed up with the correct stretching and/or orthotic management regime can relieve and ultimately cure these complaints.

Some sports where insoles maybe of benefit include:

  • Football
  • Rugby
  • Cricket
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • Dancing
  • Running/Athletics
  • Cycling
  • Martial arts
  • And many more


Children:

Children can experience many issues as they grow and develop.

A Biomechanical assessment maybe able to limit and correct issues associated with growth spurts through stretching and foot wear education. If required orthotics can ease symptoms and pain while correcting posture and gait.

Children can suffer from:

  • Toe Walking
  • Tight muscles
  • Pain in legs and feet
  • Shin Splints
  • Heel pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle pain
  • as well as other issues related to their development
