Oxley Injury Clinic offers the injured runner comprehensive gait analysis and orthotic prescription service.
Running injuries can be reproduced and analysed in a clinical setting, usually on a treadmill. The therapist can analyse atypical movements and demonstrate how problems such as knee pain or shin splints occur.
Foot orthotics may be prescribed in the management of some conditions. Our therapists construct plaster casts of the patientís feet before having a technician create the orthotic device to exact specifications. Referral to a podiatrist can be arranged where more complicated orthotic devices are required.
