Children’s Feet

We have been getting many referrals by word of mouth recommendation and from social networking sites such as or for parents to bring children to us with biomechanical problems which have by and large gone unnoticed until the child shows painful symptoms.

Foot Scanning

We have invested in the very latest equipment and software that can analyse your gait (walking pattern). Prescription orthotics (biomechanical medical appliances) can make corrections that will save you from pains in your feet, legs and back!

Orthotic Solutions

We also use “Footprints Orthotic Solutions” laboratory for our template “simple orthotics” (a much softer orthotic designed and made with the older patient in mind) and for some of our Bio-foam “casted” orthotics.


Read our testimonials from the satisfied patients that have been treated here and have needed the scanning/prescription orthotics to resolve their particular problems from HEEL PAIN, LEG, HIP or LOW BACK PAIN. They cover and age group from 12 years old through to 60 years , from all walks of life.

What our patients think…

Thank you Mr Harland for immediately answering my call and swift appointment time. After a short assessment and chat Derek treated my infection. No pain at all during and after. Thank you so much. Nice polite and helpful gentleman whom I hope to use again. Comfortable waiting area. Spacious surgery. Such a relief to be pain free. Thank you very much.

Hi Derek
I don’t know if you’ll remember, but you treated my 7 year old sons Verruca a couple of months ago. I’ve meaning to email to say thank you for the wonderful way you sorted out my sons toe after I had attempted the silver nitrate solution.(very badly) The Verruca went a couple of weeks later and Jack is convinced that it was the magic cream that sorted it out. Anyway, thanks very much Derek, and for the advice and encouragement you and Robert both offered, regarding me at some point starting a podiatry degree.

Best wishes

Dear Derek
I just wanted to say how pleased I’ve been with the orthotics you had made for my Plantar Fasciitis.
After the disappointment of the failure of other treatments I had tried- cortisone, acupuncture and ultrasound I was afraid my tennis playing days were over. I was delighted and amazed when I was playing again in a fortnight ………..
I am wholeheartedly recommending your treatment to anyone I know with a similar foot problem

Dear Derek
Jean and I would like to thank you for the scans you carried out for us this morning.
We are delighted to have had such a thorough analysis and are most grateful for the professional personal care you showed us …….

Dear Mr Harland
