Musculoskeletal or MSK Podiatry is a specialist area of Podiatry which focuses on the structure and function of a person's feet and lower limbs. Following assessment treatment may include advice, strengthening techniques or custom orthotics.
Custom Made Orthotics
John provides thorough analysis to improve biomechanical weaknesses and functional foot dysfunctions in order to improve gait and sporting performance.
During your assessment he will complete orthopaedic tests, observe your functional movement and analyse your walking or running gait on our in-house treadmill. Following this he will identify areas of mechanical stress and if appropriate he will manufacture custom or semi customised orthoses to offload the tissues involved.

- Achilles tendon pain
- Acute ankle injuries & instability
- Forefoot pain
- Morton's neuroma
- Patellofemoral pain
