The Gait and Posture Centre

The Gait & Posture Centre LLP has a team of registered podiatrists who offer not only a full range of footcare treatments but also, more especially, podiatric assessments by biomechanical gait analysis to diagnose the cause of foot and/or lower limb musculo-skeletal problems.


Re-opening plans: Government has indicated we should to return to work, so taking professional advice, we have re-opened The Gait and Posture Centre for face to face meetings. We continue to offer virtual “zoom” or “team” meetings with patients who prefer to remain isolated.

Face to face meetings: We are seeing patients on a “face to face” basis. We however request that anyone feeling ill or suffering a temperature or persistent cough does not attend in compliance with Government and expert advice. Our reception staff are furloughed, so I am limiting the numbers of days we are opening and the number of staff to a maximum of two practitioners at any one time, to maintain social distancing rules.

PPE: The practitioners will be equipped with appropriate PPE and we will book more than adequate time both to see you and have time to deep clean the working environment between patients. I would be grateful if you could turn up on time for the appointment as then you should be able to be seen immediately without waiting.

To book an appointment, please call or leave a message with your name and telephone number on 07780 992658, as the main clinic number is unmanned at present. Alternatively email clinic@gaitandposture.com and I will reply as soon as I can.

Keep safe and mobile.

Simon Costain

The Centre, founded by Simon Costain in 1992, has always been respected for its pioneering approach to treatment for a wide range of patients from children to the elderly, diabetics and arthritic patients, to the every day keen walker who suffers from aches and pains. Simon Costain has dealt with a huge number of elite athletes in his work with the British Olympic Association, UK Athletics and other professional and amateur sporting bodies, dancers and service personnel.

Patients are often referred by their surgeon or physician, GP, physiotherapist/osteopath or other healthcare professional but can self-refer having heard about the Centre from friends or colleagues.

The Centre will help anyone who has problems with their feet, legs or low back. Please contact us for further guidance.

This is a double thank you – first of all for the orthotics you created for me last year, which made a massive improvement to my feet pain, with the persistent bursitis hardly troubling me now.  Also, for the recent adjustment you made to the right orthotic to relieve pressure from my 5th metatarsal.  I’m used to the different contour underfoot now, and Peter and I went for a long walk (long for me anyway) yesterday, 2-3 miles and my 5th metatarsal wasn’t sore at all, which is a big improvement and made the walk so much more enjoyable.  So thank you for being able to make that adjustment immediately and for it to make such a difference.  I will continue to recommend you to anyone having foot problems!
