Lower Limb Injury
A LOWER LIMB BIOMECHANICS & GAIT ANALYSIS INVOLVES IDENTIFYING THE FAULTS AND UNDERLYING RISK FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO INJURY.
At Lower Limb we regularly invest in the latest technology to aid our diagnosis and management. We have high tech equipment that can quickly capture your gait, providing us with information that otherwise would not be possible.
The lower limb injury assessment is composed of a biomechanics and gait analysis, we can find imperfections with every patient’s gait. However, the skill is in deciding if the faults are contributing to your symptoms or a red-flag for future injury.
A report is provided with any recommended interventions. These may be a simple stretch and strengthening program, footwear change, soft tissue massage or custom carbon fibre orthotics.
If required, we provide the most advanced orthotics available. They are 100% custom made by taking a 3D foot scan and have a life-time warranty. We can design your orthotics using carbon fibre, making them super thin and light.

I’ve been a client of Paul’s at Head2Toe Practice for a number of years now. Paul is a highly skilled professional with a warm and friendly manner that instantly puts one at ease. Yesterday he carried out nail surgery on both of my big toes for chronic ingrown toenails that have been causing me problems. I only wish I had taken his advice sooner to have it done! The procedure was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I wholeheartedly recommend Paul’s podiatry services and I look forward to a future with permanently-pain free big toes!
