Musculoskeletal Podiatry/Biomechanics - Initial Assessment £75

Not currently available

Biomechanics is a branch of podiatry which deals with foot problems relating to your anatomy (muscles, tendons, ligaments and skeleton) such as abnormal foot function, joint alignment, muscle flexibility and gait (walking) patterns rather than physical complaints (corns, calluses, ingrown toenails…) that relate to pressure, poor footwear etc.

I am trained and qualified to assess, diagnose and manage musculoskeletal problems.  I have a specialist interest in runners - you guys sure know how to injure yourselves!
