Back Pain

At CSSM you will not only have access to the best knowledge and expertise, but also to the most up to date technology.

One example of this is our gait analysis service, an in depth examination into the way you walk or run.

Using a treadmill, high-speed video recorder and specialised biomechanical analysis software, your walking and running technique is assessed frame by frame to detect any biomechanical faults.

Whether you’re injured, want to improve your running technique or running performance; gait analysis can help you achieve your goals. Often this style of analysis is the key to understanding the cause of many common sporting injuries including shin splints, stress frac-tures and heel pain (plantar fasciitis).

Once the analysis is completed, our team of expert podiatrists, in conjunction with our physiotherapists and osteopaths, can construct a corrective treatment plan tailored to your needs. This may include strengthening exercises, training techniques and/or orthotics.

You do not need a doctor’s referral for a gait analysis.

To see what’s involved, have a look at our video.
