The Gait & Posture Centre LLP consists of several highly qualified and experienced HPC registered Podiatrists, who offer both a full range of footcare treatments, and the latest in advanced Gait Analysis to identify the mechanical cause of musculoskeletal problems of the foot, leg and back. In addition due to our well established team, we have fast track access to a number of other healthcare therapists and specialists where other treatment is required to compliment Podiatry.
We remain an “Accredited Practice” within the framework of our professional governing body ensuring the highest standards available.
The Practitioners all undertake to maintain their CPD (continual professional development) and regularly spend their time out of hours with Multi Disciplinary Teams (MDTs) to help share challenging clinical problems with the goal of being able to help resolve foot, leg and back problems that may require input from other disciplines. We enjoy a symbiotic relationship in this respect with a number of excellent Orthopaedic, Rheumatological, Osteopathic Consultants, Physiotherapists and GPs.
