Sports Podiatry

Video Gait Analysis

With a strong sporting background we have a passion for Sports Podiatry, treating clients from a large variety of sporting codes.

Common conditions treated include:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Heel, arch and ball of foot pain
  • Knee, calf and ankle pain
  • Hip and lower back pain
  • Shin splints
  • Achilles tendonopathy
  • Neuroma’s
  • Bursitis

At The Footcare Centre biomechanical and gait assessments are undertaken using computerised video gait analysis.

Specialised software allows the podiatrist to accurately analyse your gait. This analysis provides vital functional data enabling the podiatrist to assess whether your biomechanics and gait are contributing to your complaint.

Following your video gait analysis a treatment plan will be formulated, which may include orthotics, exercises, stretches, further examinations (x-ray, ultra sound) and footwear advice.
