Our philosophy

We believe that people should be able to move without pain or discomfort, and that unnecessary pain should not keep you from living an active life. We believe that foot function is paramount to posture and the human kinetic chain. We believe that it is important to address the effect that the foot has on the entire body as well as the effect that the body has on the foot.

We are unique in our approach and rather than just focusing on your pain or problems, we focus on YOU! We’re interested in how you move, breathe, walk, sit, sleep, run, lift, etc.

Your health and wellbeing are very important to us.

Everyone is unique in the way they walk or run, so our practitioners are trained to identify any imbalances and alignment problems. We use a comprehensive Biomechanical Assessment protocol, functional movement tests, video and force plate gait analysis to identify any dysfunction and establish the cause of your injury and pain. Individual treatment programs can then be formulated to assist and prevent injuries from occurring.

Remember… Where the pain is, the problem often isn’t.
