Treatment skills

Biomechancial assessments (Esther carries out more than 300 individual biomechancial assessments a year)

Simply put, this is an examination of the way your body moves, with particular focus on how the rest of your body is being affected by the structure, alignment and movement of your feet, legs and hips.   If there is dysfunction in your feet, this can directly affect knees, hips or even lower back for example.  Neck pain and headaches have been attributed to problems stemming from alignment issues in the feet.   Esther Grant

Podiatrists at Feet First clinics all have access to the Zebris digital pressure plate and gait analyis treadmills as part of their biomechanical assessments.

In addition, if custom made orthotics are part of the prescribed treatment plan, these can be quickly manufactured and adjusted inhouse.
