Research interests
The UK Podiatry Centre specialise in assessing a patient's alignment and movement to reveal the true cause of an injury. An in depth medical assessment in combination with sophisticated gait analysis is the mainstay of the examination.

Individuals are mechanically assessed to see whether abnormal joint function and bone structure contributes to a pattern of function that predisposes to injury. Factors such as spinal symmetry, limb length and hip knee and foot function and neurology are carefully analysed. The information is then incorporated into a gait analysis programme and a treatment plan formulated. Treatment would depend on the presenting pathology but may include footwear guidance, orthoses, exercise therapy and possible invasive modalities such as injection therapy and surgery.

Biomechanical orthoses consists of a device being applied externally to a part of the body to correct deformity, improve function, or relieve symptoms of a disease by supporting or assisting the neuro-musculoskeletal system.
