Walking Analysis Biomechanics

Ring any bells?

Flat feet, high-arched feet, shin pain, heel pain, forefoot pain, ankle pain, knee pain, hip pain, low-back pain on walking, achilles and other tendon problems, poor posture, hypermobility.

Walking Analysis

We can analyse your walking style to see what's wrong, or if it's likely to cause problems in the future - or even to see if your walking can be made more energy-efficient.

We specialise in analysing your foot position during the gait cycle, using video. A commercial-grade treadmill enables this to be done comfortably indoors.

Then a static examination is undertaken - including muscle strengths and joint ranges of motion.

The weight-bearing shape of your feet is captured using a vacuum system. Finally, high-quality custom orthotics are manufactured in our own lab.

Orthotic Testimonials

Although I knew the reason for the pain I was experiencing I had no idea of how to improve the situation. I was thrilled with the results of the laser treatment recommended and administered by Peter Barrow. I have new inserts for my shoes to aid my walking that I felt unable to go back to hospital to have renewed at this time. Highly recommend anyone to use this practice.

Lyn Clarke

Mr and Mrs Barrow are the most welcoming and professional people who took immense care with all Covid guidelines and also with my diagnosis. I had been having trouble with foot and knee pain for a few years, plus tendonitis was causing me a lot of constant pain which was starting to make me feel depressed. Mr Barrow carefully diagnosed my problem and offered me laser treatment to cure the tendonitis and bespoke orthotics to solve problems with flat- feet and plantar fasciitis. I felt an immediate improvement and 6 weeks later I feel fully cured.

Samantha Kerr

Very much recommend this practice. Their knowledge on the biomechanics of feet was eye-opening and the years of carrying out their own research has clearly paid off. It is easy to see why professional athletes use this clinic.

After being born with flat feet I went to Mr Barrow hoping he would be able to help with the back and foot pain that I have had since a young age. [With new orthosis] my back pain was relieved within a month and my posture improved soon after!

J Eldridge

When your 18 year old daughter tells you that 3 appointments & 1 pair of orthotics later from wonderful Peter Barrow "has changed her life" you have to give him 5 stars!! Peter is a master of his trade, his knowledge and skill are superb. From our 1st informative telephone conversation with Francesca to a speedy diagnosis and custom made orthotics. I cannot praise them both enough.

Mary Wood

Not only has Peter changed the way I walk, he has changed the amount of painkillers I was having to take to zero. I had experienced long term pain in my feet, mainly one, to the point I couldn’t walk when I woke up and I was in tears after a full day at work. Peter very quickly diagnosed the issue and fitted me with specially made orthotics. 4 laser treatment sessions later and I am virtually pain free.

Amy Pestell

I have worn orthotics for years, but my visit to Peter Barrow for personal assessment and gait analysis was different from anything I had previously experienced.  His approach is very professional, analytical and the custom made orthotics I now use, have improved my ankle strength, knee pain and gait.  At last I have stability in my feet and knees.
