Brighton Podiatry is a specialist biomechanics and gait analysis clinic in Sussex.

Helen Morrell established Brighton Podiatry in order to meet the growing need for the specialised assessment and treatment of lower limb repetitive strain injuries. This type of injury is common in runners, dancers and regular sports performers. The way that we stand, walk or run can be the cause of leg problems and foot pain. At Brighton Podiatry your lower limb function is assessed using methods appropriate to you and your particular problem. This can include a physical examination, treadmill gait analysis and foot pressure analysis, as well as questioning you about your activity levels and training methods.
Orthoses (special shoe insoles) are provided if required, together with footwear advice and exercise advice. This provides a solution to your pain and can save you buying inappropriate trainers, shoes or off the shelf insoles that don’t work.

Conditions treated include:

  • over and under pronation
  • knee problems
  • prevention of injuries
  • leg length difference
  • iliotibial band syndrome
  • achilles tendonitis
  • shin splints
  • plantar fasciitis & heel pain
  • Morton's neuroma
  • foot deformities
  • recurrent corns or callus
  • Metatarsalgia   
  • Hallux Valgus (bunion)
  • Ankle sprains      
  • Patellofemoral Syndrome / chondromalacia
  • Osteoarthritic Pain
  • Stress Fractures 
We treat a wide range of people from children through to the elderly and have a particular interest in runners, dancers, and recreational sports enthusiasts.
