Posture & Gait - Foot, Ankle & Lower Limb Assessment
WHY MIGHT YOU NEED A
FOOT, ANKLE & LOWER LIMB ASSESSMENT?
Have you felt pain in your feet or lower limbs come on gradually, affecting your day-to-day activity or sport? You can’t always put your finger on how it came about, but you feel the performance of your body isn’t as good as you would like it to be. You resign it to age or activity but be assured something can be done!
This assessment will identify which tendon, ligament, muscles and bones are being affected, injured or are degenerating. We use OnForm video gait assessment technology combined with our extensive medical knowledge when assessing you. The importance of this assessment is to reduce further degeneration, injury or recurrence of an injury and will prolong the natural life of your muscles and bones.
Think longer-term and glide into older life in the best shape to keep you strong and mobile. Stability becomes an issue as we get older. Many people come to us in older life complaining about their deformed feet which would have been easier to treat years earlier. We still have solutions for older feet but being studiers of gait, we see feet going wrong from an early age. Currently, it is not our culture in the UK to look after feet as early as we look after our teeth. We aim to change this approach.
To increase the success of your rehabilitation and reduce the chance of further injury this is your chance to boost your confidence and make all the difference.
Your tailored exercise prescription plan will be delivered online through our intuitive 'My Physio Rehab' platform with an easy to understand breakdown of your problem, muscles and joints involved, sets, repetitions, tempo and intensity and instructional video for each exercise.
After six weeks, we will review your progress in the clinic and when needed will set a follow-up plan for you to progress.

New runner's heel inflammation
A really informative and most importantly, helpful visit to tidy up my feet and to deal with a new runner's heel inflammation. Very thorough and professional, pain much eased, and I learnt a lot about not just the way I should run to be kinder to my feet, but also how I could walk better too. Highly recommended.
