Sport injury treatment - Podiatrist in Hove and Brighton - Hove Foot Clinic

Sports injuries

Lucy specialises in treating sports and running injuries caused by repetitive stress or sub-optimal biomechanics.

Your foot is a complex structure over which your whole body is propelled forwards. It is also a shock absorber, cushioning anatomical structures within the foot and lower limb from huge forces placed through it at every step.

Lucy looks specifically at impact absorption and propulsion and if indicated prescribes 100% bespoke custom made ultra lightweight 3d printed orthotics to fit the unique contours of your foot and modify the forces acting on the joints and muscles of your lower limb.  She combines this with footwear advice, strength and conditioning, training & activity modification and gait re-training if indicated.

Lucy is a runner herself. She ran the Brighton Marathon in 2012 and now volunteers as part of the marathon medical team giving her insight into the challenges faced by long distance runners.
