Exercise Therapy

 

Exercise Therapy

Exercise Therapy is a very important component in many of our treatment plans. Often exercise prescription is utilised as a stand-alone treatment in the form of specific stretching or strengthening of the foot or lower leg muscles, or in conjunction with more mechanical treatments such as orthotics or footwear.

We understand the importance and influence of the upper leg and hip in relation to foot and lower leg biomechanics and our digital video gait analysis helps to identify deficiencies of these areas. We can refer to an excellent network of other allied health practitioners such as physiotherapists and osteopaths to assist in this management.

We are proud to announce that we can now supply the ‘Toe Pro Foot and Ankle Exercise Platform’. This has been newly developed by American Podiatrist Dr Thomas Michaud who is a world renown author on Biomechanics. The platform is scientifically designed to strengthen foot, ankle and leg muscles and has been used to treat a variety of lower limb conditions.
