The foot is made up of 26 bones and 33 joints, powered and stabilised by over 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments.
This intracate machinery serves as a foundation for shock absorption and movement and despite the small surface areas, the foot and ankle receive the largest forces in the body, allowing us to walk, run and jump. it’s why looking after your feet is so critical to the well-being of your entire body.
At Harris & Ross’ clinics in Spire Manchester, Wilmslow, Bury and Altrincham, you can be confident in our clinicians’ extensive knowledge and understanding of this complex structure.
Our team are experienced at all levels of sporting care, working at elite levels with TeamGB Olympians, Manchester City, Wigan Warriors and Sale Sharks.
The same treatment offered to professional athletes is now available to everyone, with pain management, sports injury rehabilitation, podiatric treatment, biomechanical assessment and advanced management, including bespoke insoles, which we can make on site. We can also prescribe custom, casted orthotics.
What makes Harris & Ross truly stand out is that we look beyond your feet when offering podiatry – we look at the cause and effect of any pain you’re currently getting. As such our appointments offer a full range of assessments, including comprehensive biomechanical assessments, orthopaedic and musculoskeletal examinations, gait and running analysis, plantar pressure measurement and neurological and vascular screening.
Treatments may include mobilisation and manipulation, footwear and running shoe advice, manufacture of bespoke insoles made for you while you wait, custom prescription orthoses or referal to a physiotherapist for a specialised strengthening and rehabilitation programme.
Amateur and professional athletes can also consult about specialist shoe fittings ahead of your next event.
Whatever your podiatry needs, you can be confident that with Harris & Ross, you will always be a step ahead.
