A special assessment which enables me to decide which is the most appropriate method to improve and support the way you walk.
Gait analysis is an assessment of the way you walk and/or run.
I use the TOG Gaitscan system to provide additional information and data on which to base my clinical decisions and the advice
I give you.
Using my knowledge and experience I will design an orthotic prescription taking in to consideration the podiatric biomechanical assessment, the results of the Gaitscan, the sport you are involved in and your preferred footwear.
I also offer a screening service where I will come to a club and assess either part of or a full squad of players. This involves assessing and gait scanning those chosen squad members whether injured or not. I will write a full report for each player with an interpretation of findings for each individual.
This can be used as a way of detecting those players where orthotic prescription may prevent injury. It is a good way of determining high, medium and low risk players and prioritising club expenditure in this area.
In the longterm it can prove an effective way of reducing pressure on the whole medical team and can also prove very cost effective.
