Footscan® Assessment

Biomechanics play a large role in injury prevention and treatment by identifying and correcting imbalances in foot position, walking/running patterns and lower limb deformity. This can be achieved by assessing both your static and dynamic postures through a unique footscan® assessment using our state of the art foot scan equipment from RS Scan. Our therapists will analyse the scan findings and discuss appropriate treatment options, whether that is a change of footwear or recommending our Phits 3D Printed Orthotics.

A Footscan assessment will be able to help identify any abnormal movements, imbalances or weaknesses and help to correct them reducing the risk of injury.

A common issue that we often come across is “over pronation” or excessive pronation.

When considering a foot like this we must think of the impact this will have on the rest of the body. If the foot is rolling inwards then there is likely to be excessive rotation in the leg causing the knee to move inwards also, which can lead to an uneven pull on the kneecap increasing the risk of knee pain. This knock on effect can also lead to problems at the hip and lower back.

We are able to utilise a variety of diagnostic tools to help identify any problems, including our state of the art pressure plate which enables us to view force distribution moving through the foot during gait.

We can also observe you running on a treadmill and use video software to slow down and analyse your running style.

So if you are suffering from foot, ankle, knee or hip pain then please contact us to book a footscan® assessment in Manchester, Warrington or Liverpool.

Our reviews

When I was booking an appointment on the phone, the person was very friendly and made sure I was booked in as soon as was possible. Subsequent alterations of booked appointments have been dealt with quickly and queries answered straight away. The initial assessment by Craig felt thorough and he made sure that all possibilities were explored for the cause of my knee pain, not just going on my my description of the symptoms. Also he took his time in explaining why I was getting knee pain and the importance of how all the muscles work together in your leg, it was an education. Also my exercise programme was very quickly put together which is easily accessible from the handy app. Overall I am very satisfied with my initial assessment.
The entire team at Physio Lounge provided a Very professional service through out from the very first contact with the administrative staff for booking the session (Kirsty and Izzy) and then a very professional clinical consultation with Craig who was really interested to get to understand my symptoms followed by a thorough clinical examination and thereafter the hands on therapy . He demonstrated and then asked me to demonstrate that I am following the therapeutic exercises appropriately which was then followed by a video of demonstration of the exercises that he emailed over to me to reinforce the exercise technique is correctly followed. I felt that Craig and his team provided me with a truly professional, non rushed ,dedicated service with patient care at the centre of the practice which has become a rarity these days .
"I only had 3 visits and I was impressed with the booking system and the app rather than paper exercises I’ve had on previous physio visits. When it was evident I wasn’t getting any better Tom arranged for further tests with an orthopaedic consultant and I was diagnosed and x-rayed within the week.
Thomas was an excellent, professional and friendly physio and I enjoyed the sessions and I have been left with some good exercises to carry on with.
Great first session with Craig today. You can't believe how one session can change your life with 2 years pain . Highly recommend.
Excellent, professional service, treatment plan for home on the app is excellent would highly recommend.
