Each sport or exercise related activity have different risks factors that can contribute to injury. At MH Sports Podiatry we consider all factors that relate to the injury, implementing a treatment plan that is specific to you & your requirtements.

Bespoke Rehabilitation

Exercise prescription is an essential part of our treatment plans ensuring the successful rehabilitation of injured tissues & the prevention of future injuries. Using our advanced knowledge of the latest research around exercise prescription we can tailor a bespoke plan to enhance your outcome to treatment, optimise your recovery & minimise the delay in returning to you sport or activity.

We are data-driven & use a 3 step approachwhen implemnting our bespoke rehabilitation plans

  1. Strength testing, providing base line data
  2. 3 appointments to allow monitoring & progression
  3. Strength testing re-assessment

Our rehabilitation process can take 12-16 weeks & we also offer maintenance packages too.

Custom Foot Orthoses

Custom foot orthoses are often important in the management of foot, ankle & lower leg injuries & the management of knee & lower back pain. Our custom devices can provide off loading of mechanical forces, reduction in tissue stress, aid tissue recovery, stabilise joints & prevent further deformities.

When prescribing our custom devices we take into consideration our assessment data, your sport or activity & preferred footwear. We prescribe comfort, everyday & sports specific devices.

Our custom foot orthoses can be used to manage a number of conditions including

  • Achilles tendon pain
  • Foot & ankle pain
  • Knee & lower back pain
  • Gait abnomalities 
  • Joint pain & instability
  • Plantar heel pain (plantar fasciitis)

Shockwave Therapy

EMS SWISS DOLORCLAST® Shockwave Therapy is approved by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) & is a clinically proven, non-invasive treatment for chronic soft tissue & tendon injuries including

  • Medial tibial stress syndrome
  • Plantar fasciopathy
  • Achilles tendinopathy

Using the Swiss DolorClast method produces low-energy shock waves & as a result, the therapy activates self-healing processes, helping to reduce pain & accelerate the recovery of soft tissue injury.
