What happens in an appointment?
During your first consultation we will take a detailed medical history relating to your current problem.
We will then use our hands to examine you, getting you to perform certain movements for us to obtain a clear understanding of your physical complaint. You may be asked to remove some clothing for this. We will look at the way that you move using your muscles, the way that your joints move without using your muscles, and palpate the tissues around the affected area. We may use some orthopaedic or neurological tests to check the function of specific structures: muscles, ligaments, joints and nerves. We may use some tests which look at the integration of more complex systems like gait, balance, muscle chains.
We will fully explain the results of the history and examination with you. Then, if treatment is appropriate, we will discuss which therapy would best suit you, and give you some idea of the time and number of treatments needed to help improve your condition.
Treatment starts in the first session.
Follow up sessions review the symptoms and examination findings, and treatment is guided as appropriate.

If your podiatrist recommends orthotics we have a range of options to suit all budgets; off the shelf, semi-custom and fully custom. Custom orthotics are designed from a foam imprint of your foot, which is then scanned in to a Biometric Foot Scanner to produce a contour map of the soles of your feet. This scan result is then combined with information from your gait analysis and physical examination to produce a highly accurate and robust orthotic.
Minor foot surgery (for verrucas and in grown nails)... from £150
If you require foot surgery under local anaesthesia we will first need to do a pre-op appointment to inform you of the surgery and its aftercare. The surgery can usually be done within a few days of the pre-op appointment. The fee includes ALL follow-up appointments, dressings, and aftercare. Please contact us for more details.
