Leg and foot pain

Pain can come in many forms, form the obvious injury (sore to touch) to the more general and vague (dull ache, numbness or burning type sensations). We take a detailed history so that we can determine the underlying cause of your problem and offer more effective, long term solutions.

Biomechanical Assessment and Orthotic Therapy

A biomechanics assessment is an investigation into your lower limb function. Taking a close look at any abnormalities that may exist that might explain heel pain, leg pain, knee pain and potentially even back pain you may be experiencing. We can then use an orthotic to address these abnormalities and improve your symptoms.
