I would recommend Stride Orthotics to anybody. Mhairi identified the cause of my pain when everybody else failed. After years of suffering with a recurrent injury I now live pain free. Thank you, Helen M. ”

How it Works?
An orthotics company operating in Glasgow & Edinburgh since 2009

You have the option of functional video gait analysis of the ‘Leg’, ‘Full Body’ or simply take advantage of the FREE standard video gait analysis.

Regular exercise will uncovering the weak areas of the body. For example, if your knees are under heavy stress as a result of your own alignment abnormalities (biomechanics), then your knees are likely to hurt when you engage in sport for a prolonged time. After recovery, if you re-establish your desired training load without modification to your biomechanics then your knees are likely to be injured again.  Likewise for the hip, lower back, lower leg, ankle and foot.

Stride Orthotics in Glasgow and Edinburgh cater for all levels of sport and are experienced at treating elite athletes to those new to exercise.  Your biomechanics can be assessed for any sport for example running, rugby, football, skiing, golf, cycling dancing etc.

The high tech video analysis software will measure exact angles of deformity, identifying the cause of your injury.  Mhairi Friel will provide a complete postural and functional assessment of your entire body, utilising the most intuitive and accurate video analysis software available.  The software gathers information not possible to the human eye alone.  She will tell you the exact alignment of your spine, hip, knee, ankle and foot and identify any leg length difference and abnormal joint or muscle function. 

Any mal-alignments at the ankle, knee or hip will create a muscle imbalance around the joint as the muscle works hard to maintain the joint in its’ ideal alignment.  Therefore, predisposing the overworked muscle to injury.  Foot Orthotics will realign the joint and maintain muscle equilibrium around the joint, significantly reducing the risk of injury. 

Once Mhairi is satisfied the analysis is complete she will note any biomechanical inaccuracies and will advise on the appropriate steps required to restore joint and muscle function to its' best.  Utilising the video gait analysis software, you will receive a FREE copy of your video gait analysis and be provided with a FREE stretch and exercise programme most suited to your unique alignment and sport.  Specialist footorthotics (insoles) may then be prescribed for you, if required, to correct abnormal alignment and restore accurate biomechanics, significantly reducing the risk of injury. 
It is important that you attend a review, in which your movement pattern and alignment will again undergo video analysis once you have worked on the advised stretch and exercise programme and worn your insoles for the minimum 'breaking in' period of approximately 6-8 weeks.  You will clearly see the benefit that restored biomechanics has had on your body!!
