HOW CAN PHIL HELP YOU?
Is your problem due to an injury or from overuse?
The foot can often be compensating for problems originating from a higher level, for example, the hip. Sometimes, this compensation can then be re-directed back and aggravate the initial problem. Foot function that aggravates back, neck pain and even headaches, is often poorly recognised. Treatment of pain addresses the presenting symptoms and in the case of a traumatic injury, this may suffice. However in the case of an overuse injury, you need to identify the cause. Overuse injuries will settle with time and appropriate therapies, however often re-occur if the cause is not identified and treated. It's vitally important that your walking gait be analysed, and if you regularly participate in sports and fitness activities, your running gait will also be analysed.
Custom Foot Orthoses can help treat the cause.
For many people, treatment of the cause involves the implementation of orthotic therapy. Custom Foot Orthoses are like prescription glasses, an aid to good function. They don’t fix or cure poor foot structure, but they enhance foot function. Phil is considered an artisan due to his extensive experience in the prescription and manufacture of custom foot orthoses. Digital foot scanning provides an accurate 3D representation of the foot, unlike 2D scanning provided by pressure maps. Custom foot orthoses are individually fabricated and positive foot molds are given to the patient as proof of authenticity and to permit refurbishment when required. Different styles of custom foot orthoses can be made to fit sports shoes, business shoes, casual shoes and dress shoes, including heels.
WHAT TO BRING TO AN APPOINTMENT
1. Time, as an initial assessment with 3D foot scan for the provision of custom foot orthoses may take an hour.
2. Any x-rays or imaging that has been previously performed, even if not directly related to the presenting problem.
3. Comfortable attire for walking, and possibly running, on a treadmill.
4. Footwear, representative of work footwear, casual footwear and most importantly sports footwear, both old and new. If you are about to purchase new sports shoes, wait until after the appointment as we will provide sports footwear recommendations.
