PODIATRY

Treatment focussed on runners, athletes and active individuals 

It's a real privilege to combine my knowledge and expertise in podiatry, with my experience and passion as an athlete. I will offer specialist services to help runners, athletes and sportspeople back on their feet. 

 

PODIATRY APPOINTMENTS

Running Fix podiatry services include running gait analysis, biomechanical and footwear assessments, and foot care for athletes.

Having suffered through my own fair share of injuries, I understand how incredibly frustrating they can be, especially when your ability to train and enjoy life as you usually would is compromised. 

Throughout my journey, I've sought the guidance of many health practitioners, and the greatest successes have come from developing trust in them and the management strategy they're implementing.

But there are no shortcuts to success. 

Sporting injuries are most often complex, with multiple contributing factors. Time and care will be taken to assess clinical, medical and training history, symptoms, footwear, biomechanics and gait - to ensure that no stone is left unturned, and a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan can be developed and implemented.

Podosmart Gait Assessment

This is a great basic gait assessment to monitor progress during injury rehabilitation or gait modification, or to determine the success of an intervention. This is a Podosmart gait assessment only - there is no biomechanical assessment performed.

In cases when orthotics are recommended, scans will be taken also.

Orthotics

Custom orthotics promote many benefits and effectively complement podiatry management in many different settings.

Designed and implemented appropriately, they can be used to assist in treating and resolving injuries, with the primary aim of achieving better load management and improving function. 

Custom orthotics are designed specific to your feet, and to fit your lifestyle and your shoes. They are designed after taking a scan of your feet, and fabricated by Paromed.
