Treatments

I can offer some of the most up to date advice and techniques, which will be delivered in the clinic. This may include a shoes review, walking analysis using the Dartfish Video Gait Analysis System, complete assessment (Biomechanical or MSK assessments of the legs and feet), stretching regime advice and specialist insoles or orthotics. The assessment typically takes up to an hour.
