Biomechanical and Gait Analysis





Biomechanical Assessment
A biomechanical assessment is suitable for anyone experiencing foot or leg pain, or associated symptoms. Through analysis of your musculature, bone alignment and function of your feet and legs, we can diagnose and treat many conditions. Whether you are concerned about flat feet (pronated), high arched feet (supinated), heel pain or a sports injury, consult our podiatrists for sympathetic diagnosis and treatment.


The analysis is not focused solely on the foot, but also looks at the pelvis, hip, knee and ankle. It is important to look at the leg as a whole, as the foot does not function on its own, and pain in one area could be due to weakness or mis-alignment in another area. Back to Top
Gait Analysis
Actually getting our clients to walk or run, and observing the legs and feet from different angles, allows us to see any compensatory abnormalities occurring with the physical function.

Whether it is the way the foot is landing or taking off , as both feet can function differently, by studying the internal or external rotation of the knee, lower leg, or whole leg we can assess problems quickly.

It is imperative to always wear the correct footwear for running. Having proper Gait Analysis will ensure you receive the right professional advice.

Some problems may be solved by the use of appropriate footwear or trainers, such as New Balance, (cushioning or stability models) as well as prescribing appropriate stretching and strengthening exercises, combined with insole or orthotic therapy where required. Back to Top
Dancing Feet - We Will Keep You on Your Toes! Dancers put their feet through torture! An immense amount of force, pressure and vibration travel through the joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons. Not only in the feet, but also in the ankles, shins, knees, and hips.

At St.Ives Chiropody & Podiatry this is taken very seriously. If you have a chronic (long standing) concern, this can be dealt with. Acute (sudden) problems can also be dealt with. Treatment plans can range from: appropriate, targeted stretching and strengthening regimen; massage; shoe alterations. For competitions, performances and auditions, temporary strappings can be applied. For dance schools in the area, please phone or e-mail and register your interest, we can then offer your members and students a discount. Back to Top
Orthoses Orthoses (orthotics) are specialised insoles that can be a simple design or custom moulded to your feet. Orthoses are designed to off load pressure, support and modify the function of your foot and lower limb. Your podiatrist will advise you on which type will suit you best after a comprehensive biomechanical assessment. Back to Top

  • Ankle strains/instability
  • Achilles tendonitis

Sporty Feet
Whether you're into dancing, football or running, or any other kind of sport, your feet will be very important.

An immense amount of force, pressure, and vibration travel through the joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Not only in the feet, but also in the ankles, shins, knees, and hips. At St.Ives Chiropody & Podiatry this is taken very seriously. If you have a chronic (long standing) concern, this can be dealt with. Acute (sudden) problems can also be dealt with. Treatment plans can range from: appropriate, targeted stretching and strengthening regimen; massage; shoe alterations. For competitions, performances and auditions, temporary strappings can be applied. For sports clubs in the area, please phone or e-mail and register your interest, we can then offer your members and students a discount. Back to Top
Sports Injuries
An injury, or tissue damage, can occur at anytime, regardless of age or sporting ability. The cause of injury will always be force. This can be acute, (for example ligament damage in a footballer or dancer) but it can also be chronic (for example gradually worsening shin pain in runners or cyclists). The cause of an acute injury may be obvious, but often the cause of a chronic injury may be harder to pin-point. Our podiatrist will take a thorough sports history and complete a full biomechanical assessment to determine what has caused the injury and why. You will then be given a tailor-made treatment plan.

Sports injuries can include:
  • Knee pain
  • Shin splints
  • Ankle strains/instability
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Foot pain (plantar fasciitis/ heel pain)
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Toe nail problems
