I would like to take this opportunity to update you about what I am doing regarding the coronavirus outbreak, so that you can feel comfortable visiting the practice. I have been monitoring government advice and that of the College of Podiatry and following published guidelines. I am maintaining infection control procedures and taking the following extra steps:

  • Asking you to use an antiviral hand rub on arrival at the practice
  • Increased frequency of hand cleaning
  • Treatment couches and surfaces, door handles etc. are wiped with medical grade antibacterial and antiviral cleaner between patients and all clinic spaces are kept clean and hygienic

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 appropriate, together with footwear advice and exercise advice. This can help provide a solution to your pain and can save you buying inappropriate trainers and shoes or off the shelf insoles that donít work for you.

Conditions treated include:

  • plantar fasciitis & heel pain
  • Morton's neuroma
  • hypermobility
  • repetitive strain injuries
  • arch pain
  • leg length difference
  • iliotibial band syndrome
  • achilles tendon injuries
  • 'shin splints'
  • foot deformities
  • Metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of the foot)
  • Hallux Valgus (bunion) pain
  • ankle tendon and ligament injuries
  • patellofemoral syndrome / chondromalacia
  • osteoarthritic pain
  • stress fractures
  • musculoskeletal pain affecting any region of the lower limbs
  • ongoing pain or functional limitation following injury
I treat a wide range of people from older children through to the elderly and have extensive experience in working with runners, dancers, and sports performers of all levels from beginner to international standard.
