At Crispin Shoe Room we are lucky to have the support of our orthotists. We have a private clinic on our premises on Victoria Road, where you can come if you need a assessment. You can make an appointment by clicking here. Your appointment will usually last between 30 to 60 minutes.
Our orthotist will ask some questions relating to the reason for your visit. This will be documented within your own personal file.
The assessment usually consists of:
Visual assessment— This can be as simple as the orthotist watching you walk or we can use more technological methods such as video analysis of joint angles using tracking markers.
Physical assessment– this is usually through the orthotist physically assessing you, looking at muscle powers and joint ranges of motion as well as any pain.
Once the appointment is finished the orthotist will than give you advise and offer methods to help fix any problems you may have.
