Who are Sport Orthotics?


Sport Orthotics are an award winning team of state registered Orthotists and Podiatrists, who are specialists in biomechanical assessments, insoles/orthotics and orthopaedic bracing for the entire body. Our Orthotic and biomechanics clinics is based in Hamilton near Glasgow in Scotland. We are about to launch our Glasgow biomechanical assessment clinic within the heart of the city centre in Bath Street, Glasgow (launching in September 2016)




What are orthotics and what can orthotics do for me?


Orthotics are most commonly used in the form of insoles in footwear to help control the mechanics of the foot when people walk or run. However, orthotics (or an orthosis) is the proper term given to supports that are applied in any area of the body to help protect, mobilise or control the body. Our specialist Orthotists and Podiatrists within our biomechanics clinics in Hamilton South Lanarkshire and also Glasgow city centre are specifically trained in assessment and manufacture of custom orthotics for their patients.

What is a biomechanical assessment?

A biomechanical assessment is a specialist assessment undertaken to assess the mechanics of movement to establish possible causes for aches, pains and discomfort of the body. The biomechanical assessment is done to understand the root cause of problems to understand the correct approach to treating these problems.


It is very important that the biomechanical assessment is tailored to you, any underlying problems you may have and your activity. For example the way any clinician should assess a long distance runner should not be the same as someone who has had a stroke, or a child with cerebral palsy.


Our Podiatrists and Orthotists at our biomechanics clinic in Hamilton and Glasgow have specialist knowledge and ensure that your biomechanical assessment is appropriate to the patient, their activity level and nature of their problem. Some more in depth information on the type of biomechanical assessments provided are given below. Please click on the pictures below for more information

We provide a free biomechanical assessment service to all of our new customers at The Treatment hub, which we do to establish what would be the best treatment for you. We don't believe we should charge for this and the only charge is if you decide you wish to undertake any treatment offered after the biomechanical assessment has established whether we can help you.

 

As part of ths assessment we undertake a full biomechanical assessment taking up to 1 hour and includes:

 

  • Clinical history
  • Static analysis (assessment)
  • Dynamic analysis
  • Video gait analysis

 

From this we can give you a full breakdown of why your issues may be present and how we may be able to help you. Or alternatively, we can advise if one of our other specialists or therapists can help you.
