The primary focus of Sports Podiatry is the way the foot interacts with the ground and to consider the loads or forces that the lower limb has to contend with during high impact sporting activity.
Our Bridgeman Centre clinic is designed for biomechanical assessments, gait analysis and manufacturing bespoke orthotic insoles. Whether you are a casual walker, new to sport or playing at a competitive level we are here to help. We use the latest technology to collect data such as video gait analysis, force plate pressure platform and muscle strength/flexibility testing. We use this data, together with our clinical knowledge to develop a plan to reduce your symptoms and keep you doing the activities you love!
We have our own orthotic laboratory where we produce high quality bespoke orthotic insoles. All insoles are made onsite using the latest technology to find the right insoles for your activity level. We use a wide range of bespoke and off the shelf insoles to suit your individual needs and pride ourselves on being the only clinic in Wigan that can make your bespoke insoles at your biomechanical assessment. You can walk out with them perfectly fitted to your shoes so your pain free journey begins right away and no need to wait 3-4 weeks for delivery.
A full history of symptoms will be taken and a lower limb assessment will be conducted which may include assessment of muscles, joints, posture analysis, basic gait analysis and footwear assessment.
Your treatment plan may include bespoke orthotic insoles, prefabricated insoles and/or a program to improve your gait.
Sports Biomechanical Assessment
A full history of symptoms will be taken and a lower limb assessment will be conducted which includes assessment of lower joints, posture analysis, full video gait analysis, force plate pressure analysis and footwear assessment. This assessment also benefits from a comprehensive muscle strength and flexibility assessment using latest technology to quantify muscle insufficiency and identify areas that may require improvement.
Your treatment plan may include bespoke orthotic insoles, prefabricated insoles and/or a program to improve muscle efficiency.
This treatment is also great for those who wish to begin or return to activity and would like a full professional screening assessment to identify areas that may be under stress and reduce injury risk.
