Assessment, Treatment and Rehabilitation
Sports injuries may have an underlying biomechanical pathology
which we can treat by altering lower limb function using a variety of methods including; insoles, footwear and exercises.
Biomechanics is the science concerned with the internal and external forces acting on the human body and the effects produced by these forces.
After history taking, biomechanical assessment is possibly the most important part of a podiatric consultation.
At the clinic we will examine you sitting, standing and walking, checking the major joint complexes of the foot, ankle, knee and hip.
At any level of sport in which techniques play a major role, improvement and avoidance of injury comes so often from careful attention to detail .
We work with sportsmen and women of all ages ranging from keen amateurs to elite athletes and Olympians. We work with the Scottish Institute of Sport which is the high performance arm of sportscotland. We are very proud to have treated athletes competing at the Olympics and Commonwealth games as well World Championships.
