Welcome to Manchester sports podiatry. The clinic is owned and run by Paul G Johnson whose main philosophy is to help the injured athlete to return to their chosen sport as soon as is practicable.
Paul specialises as a musculo skeletal podiatrist both privately and in the NHS (as an extended scope msk practitioner) and personally undertakes all consultations within the clinics.
Sports Podiatrists (or musculoskeletal Podiatrists) primarily focus on the way the foot interacts with the ground and try to consider the loads or forces that the lower limb has to contend with during high impact sporting activity. This is often also referred to as ‘biomechanics’. Our clinicians work solely in this field.
At Manchester sports podiatry we utilise traditional orthopaedic assessment methods as well as combining the latest technology to treat our clients. We use the cutting edge gait analysis tools including computerised dynamic pressure gait analysis footscan system and video gait assessment.*
Our aim is to provide a comprehensive and cost effective service to our clients. Our approach to treating lower limb injury reflects this.
Our simple and effective approach is to use the ‘tools’ necessary to return the athlete as quickly as possible to sporting activity.
*video gait assessment should be requested by the client when booking an appointment
