At Premierphysio we boast a fully equipped gait analysis lab, including a treadmill. Our Podiatrist, Shauna will observe the way your foot and lower limb joints and muscles function to determine if the way you are walking, running or cycling may be contributing to a current injury, or could cause an injury in the future. From the assessment findings and if appropriate, we offer a range of insoles to suit your symptoms and budget, which influence the foot to behave correctly and lessen the cause of your pain. We favour the use of custom and semi custom insoles, as these are prescribed specifically for you and take into account a variety of factors such as weight, sporting activity, foot type, medical status and footwear. We feel these provide the best outcomes for our clients and in addition they have a much longer life span than the ‘off the peg’ option.
If insoles are appropriate, our Podiatrist Shauna will complete an order form for your prescription. We use LBG Medical to make our insoles, as they are a leading European manufacturer and have a state of the art lab in the UK. We find their semi custom option is the most popular with our clients and you can take a look at the various options available with this link:
