are a team of state registered Orthotists, specialists in biomechanical insoles/orthotics and orthopaedic bracing
for the entire body. Our Orthotic and biomechanics clinic is based in Hamilton near Glasgow in Scotland.
Sport Orthotics prides itself
on the use of high performance orthotic products and the latest biomechanical assessment technology to help in the design
of our custom orthotics.
We provide a free biomechanical assessment service to all of our new customers 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.
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. This is done to understand the root cause of problems to understand
the correct approach to treating these problems.

A unique aspect of our orthotic clinical service is that we have our own on
site orthotic lab in Hamilton (near Glasgow) which enables us to manufacture, adjust and repair your orthotics even while
you wait! This means that should you require your orthotics manufactured at the same time as your biomechanical assessment
we can do this.
Using our own custom built orthotic lab on site at our orthotics and biomechanical assessment clinic
in Hamilton (near Glasgow) you will not have the frustration of having orthotics sent backwards and forwards to a supplier
to get them comfortable, we do it while you are in clinic on the same day. Not only that but our base at the Treatment Hub
in Hamilton (near Glasgow) you will also have access to Physiotherapists, Podiatrists (Chiropodists), and Sports Therapists,
who work together to achieve the best possible care.
We provide a friendly and professional service for people of all
levels of activity in the Glasgow, Lanarkshire and West of Scotland areas from our base in the Treatment Hub clinic in Hamilton,
which is around 9 miles from the city centre of Glasgow.
We use the latest technology for our patients and are
proud to have introduced the Medilogic pressure analysis system to our practice. This means we can actually measure the success
of our orthotics and is a valuable tool in our assessment of biomechanics. This system is quite different from all other systems
commonly used as it measures the forces on the foot inside the shoe. No other Glasgow or indeed Scottish private orthotic clinic can offer this level of analysis within
their private orthotic and biomechanics clinic.
Sport Orthotics is the only private orthotic practice
using this system in both Glasgow and Scotland, another reason why we feel we offer the best service in the country.
This is why many professional sports clubs including SPL football teams and running clubs in the Glasgow and Lanarkshire
area use us as their preferred provider of biomechanical assessments and orthotics.
This medilogic pressure analysis system allows
us to directly measure the pressure going through the various parts of the foot to understand why you may have pain in a certain
area as part of your foot assessment.
This is measured within the shoe and as such
we can actually measure how well your orthotics perform allowing us to provide the best possible foot assessment and outcome.
We cater from the elite athlete to
the man on the street!
We have many patients in the
Glasgow and Central Scotland area across all activity levels. Our clients currently include professional footballers,
ultra marathon runners and national level athletes. At the other end of the spectrum we see the average person requiring our help to
go about their daily activities.
