Gait Analysis

While podiatrists have a foot and ankle focus we also assess the role of proximal structures (the back, hips and glutes) in aiding the control of the lower limb. Through a series of functional assessments representative of your chosen sport or activity, we can determine how much of a posturtal inefficiency is attributed to the feet vs hips.

Our feet are always the first point of contact with the ground and seeing a podiatrist is a great place to start. If we can rule out foot posture as a cause of injury we can focus on exercise prescription for improved lumbopelvic control. We also utilise the services of expert physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors for multidisciplinary care.
