Birmingham Foot Clinic Treatment - Biomechanics

Biomechanics

The Birmingham Foot Clinic offers gait analysis, digital foot pressure scanning and 3D optical scanning to aid the manufacture of custom made orthotics

Biomechanical therapies offer a unique conservative treatment for many conditions that are exacerbated by malalignment of the foot to the lower limb and / or ground.

Orthotics are to the foot what spectacles are for the eyes. They are devices that when worn reduce the negative effect of malalignment or function. This can change forces acting about joints and stresses applied to supporting tissues.  The orthotics used by the Birmingham Foot Clinic are manufactured for the clinic with unique design features.

Orthotics are most commonly used in the treatment of pes planus (flat feet), ankle area pain, plantar fasciitis (heel pain) and metatarsalgia (forefoot pain). However they can be used in the treatment of any condition where skeletal alignment is influenced by the interaction between the foot and the ground (e.g knee pain or back pain).

It is often asked by patients is it really worth trying an orthotic'. At the Birmingham Foot Clinic we have a simple policy. If we prescribe an orthotic that you are unhappy within the first 4 weeks from fitting, we refund the cost of the 'orthotic device' in full.
