Podiatry Insoles / Orthotics

If you have lower limb pain it’s worth trying our Cheltenham Podiatry Biomechanics Clinic.

Our Cheltenham based musculoskeletal trained Podiatrists will look at how your feet are behaving when you walk (the medical term for this is Gait Analysis). Feet can often cause painful conditions such as:

  • Flat feet
  • Achilles pain
  • Bunions
  • Shin splints
  • Plantarfasciitis
  • Neuromas….. the list goes on.

 

Our Chelteham Podiatrist can prescribe a variety of Orthoses / Insoles – from the very best prescription custom made (using casts of your feet) to the best value insoles (insoles that we modify to suit your feet). The Podiatrist may decide to refer you to the Physiotherapy team if you require some specialist exercise therapy and stretches.


Foot Mobilising Therapy ( FMT) by Sally Albutt

Podiatry Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT) is a form of ‘manipulative therapy’ and is similar to treatments given by Physiotherapists, Chiropractors and Osteopaths.  FMT is specifically designed to help problems with foot and leg pain and is performed by a Podiatrist who has specialised in this form of manual therapy.

 

Foot Mobilising Therapy can help to improve conditions in the following ways:

  • Improves joint mobility by the freeing of adhesions and other restrictions.
  • Postural stability will improve through promotion of the body’s proprioceptive (balance) system.
  • Muscles around joints will become stronger by increasing the muscle -to -nerve messages.
  • Stimulation of joints decreases the pain messages sent to the brain.
