Enable Orthotics is a specialist Orthotics clinic focusing on lower limb and foot biomechanics located in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.
We specialise in performing in depth patient assessments and analysing individual gait and movement patterns. Utilising video gait analysis and foot scan systems we can identify any intricacies and imbalances in your body that can often lead to pain or injury.
We are passionate about providing evidence based service and believe that Orthotics are not always the answer. This means we only recommend Orthotics when there is evidence and clinical reasoning to support doing so. We also provide footwear advice, lower limb mobility/strengthening exercises and life style change advice when the evidence shows this may help.
At Enable Orthotics we believe that everyone is different. Any treatment or advice offered will be bespoke to your individual presentation and needs.
Many clients chose to come to Enable Orthotics as they find NHS waiting times too long. At Enable Orthotics we are proud to provide quick access to Orthotic treatment and offer evening and weekend appointments to fit around your schedule.
