Walk-Run Mobility

At Body Back Up, we specialise in individualised assessments designed to improve your walking and running gait.

This approach can be applied to children, teens, all the way up to Older adults who want to keep healthy and mobile. We also work with athletes and keep fit runners too.

We review your stride, lunge and squat technique, benchmarking our observations to see what remedial exercise or treatment would help best or whether a change in footwear or orthotics would suit you.

What are Orthotics and could they help?

Our low cost Orthotics are designed to help your feet cope better.

Feet are placed under a great deal of stress, particularly in occupations that involve a lot of a standing or walking.

Sports also place demand on the feet and the lower limbs, over an extended period of time.

Pregnancy also places huge demands on the feet and our assessment of your gait and foot wear can make a difference to all stages. Orthotics can be useful here too.

Your feet are your body’s foundations and support your body to help it function at it’s optimum.

Will you benefit from BODY BACK-UP Orthotics?

During our consultation where we assess your foot and body mechanics.

Your Body Back-Up osteopath will select the size that suits your foot length and width. We also assess your ankle, calf and knee mechanics and treat any dysfunction to help your feet to adapt to your new Orthotics.

Do I really need bespoke Orthotic Insoles?

The Orthotics prescribed by Body Back-up are pre-formed insoles which are bio-mechanically designed to support the natural shape of your feet.

They are specially constructed, eco friendly, using various components of differing thickness and density to make sport-specific orthotics for support and performance.

Often the orthotics we suggest save you the need for bespoke orthotics, which cost many times the price. We refer you if your feet require bespoke orthotics.

The insoles we prescribe are normally £40 plus a half hour assessment appointment as required.
