Foot Biomechanics for heel pain and other foot pain symptoms

Sports BIOMECHANICS :Here at our clinic in Leicester, we aim to resolve your symptoms by finding the ‘CAUSE’ of your foot pain especially heel pain and keep you and your family healthy and active for longer! By correctly diagnosing your foot pain, by means of biomechanics and FOOTscan we can then adopt treatment strategies to resolve the condition and get you going again.

Plantar fasciitis also known as Heel pain:

Is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves pain and inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.

Examples of common conditions: Flat feet, Heel pain caused by Plantar fasciitis, Mortons neuroma, joint/muscular pain and pronation. If you are suffering from pain in the body there are a number of symptoms which may point to poor foot function. The structure of the foot will support up to 3-4 times your body weight when walking and running. However the slightest misalignment of muscle or bone can lead to abnormal foot and leg movements. These abnormal movements produce high stresses in joints and muscles almost anywhere in the body and result in injury. Repeated walking in pain will result in physical changes that will change your walking style and possibly aggravate other structures in the body.

  • We offer static and walking assessments that include :
  • FOOTscan analysis barefoot and in shoe.
  • Footwear specific examination.
  • Functional movement analysis.

Clinical Gait Analysis is the process by which quantitative information is collected to aid in understanding the cause of Gait abnormalities and in treatment decision making.The twisting, jumping and physical demands in many sports place even greater stresses on the feet and biomechanical system. The cause of many sports injuries is a gradual or sudden change to the body’s biomechanics. INSOLES or SPECIAL ORTHOTICS also called plantar fasciitis shoes– Off the shelf V’s Custom made. This will depend on the extent of your troubles and your budget.

The insoles and Orthotics here at Head To Toe are beneficial for Sporting Injuries and everyday use. A detailed examination will help in rehabilitation and achieving our goals of getting you pain free.

The twisting, jumping and physical demands in many sports place even greater stresses on the feet and biomechanical system. The cause of many sports injuries is a gradual or sudden change to the body’s biomechanics.

The service at Head To Toe is great. I have been twice now and also introduced my mother and daughter to the practice to have their feet done. Very polite, friendly customer service and an excellent "beside...(chair-side)" manner. Thank you very much.

I had hurt my back last week, so went to get an hour-long deep tissue massage today to ease the pain. It was exactly what I needed! I feel great now, and it was great to destress. The staff were so nice, friendly and professional. I also got an appointment on the same day that I rang, which was great! I will definitely be going back in a month or so for another massage. I would highly recommend.

I am very happy with my experience with Head to Toe services. I've got an ingrown nail intervention, didn't feel any pain during procedure, Raj was very gentle and professional. He also gave me good advices for my foot care. Also very nice and friendly receptionist! I am grateful and I would definitely choose Head to Toe again. I followed these reviews and it was the best choice!

After two steroids and years of back and shoulder pain, I woke in tears this morning and knew I had to see a professional - I couldn't take the pain any more. I found Head to Toe after a simple google search and called - treatments were explained and an appointment booked today, as I was in so much pain. I have just had a deep tissue massage and I can honestly say, I feel as though I am floating. I can't remember what it feels like not to be in pain every day, and yet right now, I feel nearly pain free. I can move! I've booked another appointment for two weeks time, and I'm pretty confident that my progression to a pain free and painkiller/drug free life is ahead of me, my only regret is not contacting Head to Toe sooner! Highly recommended.

My wife recommended Head to Toe as she has been having treatment for verrucae. Making an appointment was simple and I was greeted warmly. Despite having extremely ticklish feet, I was kept chatting throughout the treatment of my toenail infection such that I barely noticed my feet were being touched. The treatment was explained clearly and I left having made a follow-up appointment. I was impressed by the friendliness and relaxed atmosphere of the place and staff.

I had to make an emergency appointment for a family member who was in a lot of pain with his toe. We were able to get an appointment with Raj on the day we rang. As soon as we walked in we were greeted by a lovely lady at reception who was very helpful. Raj is a genuinely nice man who clearly takes pride in what he does for a living and he managed to resolve the problem. Amazing place, would recommend to anyone.

Excellent podiatry and customer service throughout. I would highly recommend attending this center if you suffer from an ingrown toenail and are forced to wait long periods of time for NHS treatment. The value for money is amazing and, to my knowledge, the best in Leicestershire.

I was given a voucher as a Christmas present for Head to Toe, what a wonderful gift! I opted for Reflexology with Lisa and cannot recommend her highly enough. I cannot understand how she can tell so much about my health through my feet! She didn't ask me any questions but picked up all my health concerns. After the treatment, I slept for eight hours for the first time in weeks. Amazing! A truly relaxing experience. Guess what's on my Christmas and birthday list??

I discovered this clinic by a simple google search. They provide an excellent service. I suffered from an advanced flat feet condition which have caused alot of back and ankle pain. The tailored insoles Raj prescribed for me are life savers! He was very helpful when I asked him about what is the best insole material which causes less heat and which shoes i should buy. He also recommended stretching exercises and explained how gradualy I need to get my feet used to the insoles. Now I can stand for many hours and I can even run yaaaaay!!! Me and my partner had also a 1 hour deep tissue massage with Alex and Agnes. Alex and Agnes are incredibly professional and provided us with best massage sessions. We restored our posture after this session and alot of pressure and pain in shoulders and ankles were released.

Found this practice from a search in the NHS choices site and I'm so pleased I did. I'd been trying to manage an ingrown toenail for some time and had got to the point where it was becoming painful on a daily basis to the extent I had convinced myself I might need a procedure to remove or reduce the size of the nail. I got a convenient appointment time, after emailing the practice initially, with Raj who was professional and friendly (as were all of the staff there) with good advice for maintaining healthy feet. I've booked again and I'm even considering their massage service. Highly recommended 6 out of 5 stares* *they will know it's a typo �

I wanted a deep tissue massage and that is exactly what I got. Stan was brilliant. He really got into the knotted muscles in my back. I would definitely recommend Head to Toe, with friendly reception staff as well.

The customer service from start to finish was absolutely unremarkable! I was treated as an emergency close to closing times on the same day as calling to make an appointment. This really was appreciated as I was in pain but this service wasn't necessary yet was given without the slightest bother. This then continued at my followup which again was efficient and outstanding in terms of service and clinical expertise. I am truly grateful for the team Jay and Raj for sorting the above out to allow me to be able to walk without pain and climb a charity climb up Mount Kilimanjaro again from two days after seeing them! Thanks, Zarna.
