Struggling with dry cracked heels?

As well as removing the callous and giving advice on preventing it’s return, we also provide a paraffin fax bath service which as well as relaxing also allows the moisture to soak into the skin which helps prolong treatment benefits.

Impact of Poor foot mechanics –

Whether you’re very active or like a gentle walk each day your feet are the ones doing the work and it is important they are working in an effective way.

The way you walk influences the muscles/joints and ligaments of the lower limb so we aim to make sure you are walking as best as you can to limit the strain on these components.

This can cause and worsens existing injuries such as knee pain, ankle pain, hip pain and tendinopathies such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles’ tendonitis, and post tibial dysfunction. 

Our Podiatrists work with our Chiropractic team to manage the inter-relationship between your spine, pelvis, and the lower limb.

Gait Scan → Foot assessment?

At BIM we have a gait scan plate technology (Foot Levellers) that aid in diagnosing possible gait issues, including weight bearing discrepancies.

It does this by showing the podiatrist exactly what areas of the foot you are exerting the most force/pressure , this can aid us in understand why you may be experiencing lower limb pain or complications.

Using this assessment tool as well as testing foot mechanics, slow motion visual analysis and  3D foot scan we can assess the need for orthotics as well as customising them for you as an individual to tailor to your foot health needs.

Why invest in custom orthotics?

Based on our assessment if orthotics are required, we have a range of options which vary in price and quality.

Ranging from off the shelf, semi customised and custom orthoses made using a digital 3D scanner or by taking physical moulds.

Custom orthoses are the Gold standard when it comes to controlling foot mechanics and preventing lower limb complications.

They aid this by controlling poor gait, optimising your foot posture and offload over loaded components of the foot. Plus, there made just for you, and you are only.
