It allows you to accomplish many daily tasks, attend work and social functions and it is essential to your physical and emotional health. It is therefore important to preserve the efficiency of your walking style. Your stride, foot strike, knee action, hip mobility, trunk stability, arm swing and head position all interact to create a walking style. Poor movement patterning, weakness and tightness while walking can contribute to the breakdown of many areas of your body.

Corrective advice and exercises will be given to address deficiencies.
They are committed to providing professional evidence-based hands-on treatment, and education and exercises to help reduce your pain and restore your function and mobility. They pursue ongoing post-graduate courses to employ the most current techniques in their practice.
