Computerised Gait Analysis
We specialize in video gait analysis and utilize a high tech 2d digital analysis system to record and analyse the gait frame by frame in slow motion. This can be very helpful in helping us to ascertain the mechanism behind an injury.
If we believe that the root cause of the injury is poor lower limb mechanics and that a structure or tissue is overloaded/overstressed and becoming damaged secondary to this, we will devise a treatment plan to alter this.
This could mean a change of shoe, a foot orthotic device, a heel raise, stretching or strengthening execises or joint mobilization to enhance joint function.
Following treatment the gait can then be re- analysed to look for kinematic changes (changes in the motion or alignment)

what people say about us
I booked an appointment with the podiatrist as I picked up a bad ankle injury playing football and was unable to walk. This turned out to be a torn tendon of my ankle.
Scott was very clear and concise as he explained my treatment over several sessions of mobilisation ,massage and functional exercises and I began to see improvement as each week went by. I'm very happy to say after 3 months of treatment I am now able to walk and participate in sport again.
Absolutely top notch service, a friendlier practice you will not find! Everyone is so pleasant and patient, they really listen to you and address your concerns like the true professionals they are. Very knowledgable and the results were fantastic. Highly recommend The Shand Practice!
Central location with on street parking outside. Great service and flexible appointments. I have been to the practice for various injuries and pains such as 'shin splints' and plantar plate issues. Treatment included; massage, acupuncture, review on how I was running (treadmill) and I was also given exercises to do at home and lots information and tips to stop the problem reoccurring. I would like to thank Scott as it never has!
