Our Musculoskeletal Podiatrists do not only treat sports injuries in the lower limb but can also offer advice and treatment to minimise your injury risk in the future.
When you attend a musculoskeletal consultation with us, your Podiatrist will conduct a thorough examination which involves taking an in-depth history of your injury, a biomechanical assessment and OPTOGAIT video analysis.
OPTOGAIT is the latest in Video Gait Analysis technology and provides us with a series of quantitative data of your running, walking, jumping and squatting! It also combines feedback from infrared sensors with 2D video footage to give an in-depth report that highlights areas of asymmetry and movement dysfunction that may be contributing to your injury.
Armed with all your assessment findings, your Sports Podiatrist can provide you with an accurate clinical diagnosis and treatment plan to address your issues.
Typical sports injuries our Musculoskeletal Podiatrists resolve include:
- Plantar fasciitis (heel pain)
- Achilles tendonitis
- Runner’s knee
- Shin splints (Medial tibial stress syndrome)
- Ankle instability
- Forefoot pain (Metatarsalgia)
- Stress fractures
- Iliotibial band syndrome
At Active Step, our primary goal is to identify the underlying causes of your pain and provide you with effective treatment to get you back to reaching your goals as soon as possible.
