What is Podiatry
Podiatry is a foot and ankle specialty that provides diagnosis and treatment of patients with foot problems and lower limb injuries.
At The Gait Lab we provide biomechanical analysis and gait assessment, podiatric sports medicine, paediatric podiatry, management of hypermobility syndrome and rheumatological management of foot problems.
We are HPC Registered Podiatrists who assess and treat the lower limb for biomechanical deformities and musculoskeletal injuries. By looking at the way certain joints and muscles function the Podiatrists are able to determine if the way you are walking may be contributing to a current injury or problem. All patients are assessed with slow motion video gait analysis by the Podiatrist to visualise their individual gait pattern.
The Gait Lab are an integral part of The Hypermobility Unit team which is a specialist service for the diagnosis and management of all hypermobility-related disorders. For more information please visit
