Computerised Videotrak Gait Assessment:

This is a unique service to accurately determine overpronation in runners, a common aggravating factor in many running injuries eg. patello-femoral syndrome, Achilles tendonitis, shin splints and ilio-tibial band (ITB) friction syndrome.

If indicated specific shoe types (eg. anti-pronaters) and modified training methods can be prescribed or orthotic intervention advised.

Biopuncture:

This is a relatively recent discipline in complementary medicine and is useful in acute and chronic sports injuries. It can be offered at the outset or when the conventional strategies in sports medicine (viz. sports massage, icing, acupuncture, heat therapy, strapping, ultrasound, electrotherapy etc.) have failed.

Biopuncture entails injecting homeopathic products (e.g Traumeel) subcutaneously into trigger points as opposed to the use of non steroidal anti-inflammatories or cortisone.

Physiotherapy and Orthotic Services:

The Clinic is in close proximity to experts in the above disciplines who are readily accessible at all times.
