Never ignore the warning signs of an injury. By taking steps to treat pain in its early stages rather than waiting until you have a full-blown injury, you can limit your pain and reduce the amount of time you need to take off from your chosen sport.
Almost everyone has some structural biomechanical misalignment. Your body will compensate for misalignments through the mobility in your joints and the flexibility and strength in your muscles. When getting back into your sport from a break, recovering from an injury or taking it to the next level, you are at high risk of injury because of the high forces placed through your body, which can lead to inflammation, pain and injury.
At Total Care Podiatry our comprehensive examinations use video assessment on our treadmill and computerised plantar pressure gait analysis to enable us to find out the best way to improve your body’s ability to compensate and provide you with a long term, pain free solution.
If you need orthotics, prescription is everything!
Our state of the art computerised plantar pressure gait analysis, video gait assessment and 3D image scanning of your feet ensure best practice in prescribing your customised orthotics.
Using this technology we are also able to repeat the examination for comparison to see changes and improvement to ensure your performance remains injury free.
Working together with other health professionals involved in your care is also important to achieve a long term solution.
