Biomechanics

Here at Z.W. Foot & Ankle we are passionate about helping you stay mobile and pain free. We therefore offer a service whereby Zoe, Our Specialist Podiatrist can offer you an hour long appointment to assess any current issues, previous injuries or ongoing niggles in your lower limbs. During this time we discuss your medical history relevant to the presenting problem, activity level, footwear choices for work and leisure as well as an extensive assessment of your gait, joints and a discussion around how we can address your issues. This can include footwear, orthotics/insoles, strengthening and stretching regimes, steroid injections or onward referral for a second opinion.

Orthotics

Orthotics, insoles or shoe inserts as they can be known are often prescribed following a biomechanical assessment where needed. This can range from over the counter devices right up to a fully custom designed, made and measured device. Orthotics can be used to treat a variety of lower limb issues. Please have a look at our interactive foot below to see a few of the conditions we treat! If you are in doubt then please do not hesitate in giving the Podiatrist a call here at the clinic. We are happy to discuss treatment options with you over the phone or during your appointment.
