Using cutting edge footscan technology and biomechanical measurements we can analyse your gait to help with foot problems.
Problems with your feet can lead to other chronic problems with ankle, knees, hips and the spine.
We are also able to use as a prevention tool, by assessing different pressure zones dynamically we can analyse the risk of injury.
The dynamic analysis generates a design which is created by a 3D-printer to produce a Phits 3D - printed orthotic.
The insoles are made from high grade ultralight polyamide to provide your feet with the best comfort and functional support.
Phits orthotics last up to 3 times longer than traditional orthotics and are low maintenance. The orthotics give the right support for every day activities or for optimal performance during sporting activity.
Deep Oscillation is delivered via massage or applicators. An electrostatic field is created in the tissue segment undergoing treatment. The tissue layers are attracted and released up to 250 per second (250 Hz).
Deep Oscillation permeates a clinically proven depth of 8cm. No pressure is required to achieve effects making it an ideal treatment for many conditions including sports injuries, lymphoma, osteoarthritis, back pain, to name a few. Some clinical benefits are that it can help reduce pain, mobilise an area, relax muscles have an anti-inflammatory .

"Friendly and professional service. Explanation's of symptoms and exercises were very clear and concise. Excellent service, thank you".
"I have been to Catherine for over 12 years. Recently due to personal circumstances I had to use an alternative physiotherapist who, after three sessions, failed to diagnose the problem. Fortunately, I returned to Catherine and she immediately identified the cause of my hip pain and within a week, I felt an improvement. Catherine is very professional, efficient and, without fail, sorts me out!"
"Have been treated by Catherine on and off for over 10 years, and, she has proved to have been a more than capable physiotherapist; excellent at pin-pointing my back and muscle problems; has a bright and cheery disposition!"
"I have been delighted with the treatment I have recently received from Catherine Adams. After a swift diagnosis of an acute back problem, exercises and treatment were given, and the problem resolved over a few sessions. My husband and mother also have recently had problems with their backs and Catherine treated them with great success. I would have no hesitation in recommending Catherine. She is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, understanding and highly skilled. Excellent!"
"I went to see Catherine a week after I was turned away by the hospital with a severe pain in my right arm which got worse over a period of 2/3 weeks. As there was no restriction of movement in my arm, I was told not to worry about it. Catherine was recommended to me by a colleague, she diagnosed a problem in my back which surprised me but, I agreed to start treatment immediately as she felt that I had an “acute” condition. It wasn’t until she started the treatment that I realised just how bad I was and I cannot thank her enough for the help and support she has given me over the past few weeks. Her knowledge, experience and methods are excellent".
