DO YOU HAVE REOCCURING BACK, KNEE, FOOT OR HIP PAIN?
Orthotics seem to be sold over the internet in their drones and can contribute towards back, knee and joint problems if they are not fitted and prescribed properly. At the Willow Tree Clinic we aim to treat not just the symptom but the cause of all your aches and pains in the fastest and most cost effective way possible. A lot of research and trails have been used to make sure that you get the best orthotic to treat your condition. Furthermore the NHS now charge a fee of £40 and a £10 charge with each visit and you usually have a long waiting list!
We offer a FREE NO OBLIGATION gait and posture check worth £55. Unlike a lot of providers we do not charge a fitting fee, or follow up fees of any kind. (Please be aware that most orthotics sold on the internet are not the same density or quality that can be provided here).
Widely used over the counter orthotics can be prescribed for someone who has a very slight need for arch support or cushioning! And we feel that this is the case we will tell you so.
Orthotics are available for children and adults, (not suitable for ver young children)
WITH EVERY ORTHOTIC FITTING THERE IS A FREE COMPLIMENTARY BACK ASSESMENT.
Our aim is to make orthotics value for money. Price range £40- £150 only.
Gait and Posture Checks.
The assessment and treatment of muscle imbalance blends posture techniques, neurology, and functional capabilities to alleviate chronic musculoskeletal pain and promote greater functionality.
The step - by - step evaluation includes analysis of posture, balance and gait; evaluation of movement patterns; testing of muscle length; and assessment of soft tissue. The text explores treatment options for muscle imbalance through facilitation and inhabitation techniques, and sensorimotor training to restore neuromuscular function.
How to check your Gait at Home
Get undressed and look in a full length mirror so that you can see your feet. Now from the center of your groin, imagine a plumb line from the center of the ankle. Note where the center of the knee is! Is it sitting inwards "Knocked Knee" effect or is the knee sitting in the center of the plumb line?
Another way of looking is to look at the outside of the leg and see if you have an backwards K shape to the whole look of the leg? Does the ankle roll inwards or outwards after standing still for a couple of minutes.
