Assessment

Comprehensive Biomechanical Assessment in all modes of movement

The Running Clinic consultants offer an extensive functional lower limb assessment for athletes. Our Musculoskeletal Podiatrists have provided over 30,000 patients with help in determining the prime cause of injuries.

Assessment includes:

  • Diagnosis of injuries or pain: essential for any form of treatment to commence
  • Analysis of foot function in static, walking and running modes (gait)
  • Muscle strengths and weaknesses
  • Flexibility
  • Specific movements relative to activity (ie lateral and medial movements: football, netball etc)
  • Footwear
  • Workplace Issues

From this 1 hour assessment injuries can be diagnosed and treatment regimes recommended.

Treatment

The Clinic designed a unique prescription Insert (orthotic) to distribute weight more evenly across the foot structure. This exclusive technique has proven highly successful being lighter, more flexible with superior control to standard arch support orthotics. See Fig 1 and Fig 2. Under arch base support (Ref: M.C. Root early 1970's)

Predominantly mass manufactured arch based orthotics

We focus on support based on heel position

Benefits of new Inverted Calcaneal Orthotics

The Running Clinic has designed and created an exciting new range of prescription non arch based Orthotics. Advanced International knowledge of foot biomechanics now shows functional efficiency of gait and lower limbs are controlled by the Calcaneus (heel) position at the first point of ground contact. This challenges the old theories of arch support.

Using software to calculate calcaneal angles the Running Clinic can produce an angulated calcaneal Orthotic to control foot function.

  • More flexible, without loss of correction
  • Greater freedom of movement
  • Adapts to the lateral and medial direction of sports shoes
  • Ideal for young Athletes. Spikes, football boots etc
  • Ideal for children
  • No more rigid, hard devices
  • Prescription Inserts engineered by hand
