Macclesfield Podiatry is able to provide a medico-legal report that advises on:

- Treatment cost
- Functional ability (previously, now, and in the future)
- Potential for improvement
Surgical Opinion Reports
The podiatrists at Macclesfield Podiatry, on request, will provide letters and reports detailing surgical opinion. Surgical opinion reports may be necessary if and when all other podiatric treatment options have been exhausted. In this instance surgery may be considered as the most appropriate option.
Podiatric conditions that may benefit from surgery include:
- Hallux rigidus
- Hammer toe
- Metatarsal surgery
If you feel that surgery would be appropriate for you, please visit Macclesfield Podiatry for an assessment to see if this would be the most suitable option.
Biomechanical Assessment Reports
Macclesfield Podiatry can provide a comprehensive biomechanical assessment report following a biomechanical assessment and gait analysis. A number of injuries and pathologies are experienced due to poor foot and lower limb mechanics, including:
- Heel pain
- Calf pain
- Shin pain
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Iliotibial band syndrome
- Callus and corns
Macclesfield Podiatry will perform a biomechanical assessment in order to assess the mechanics of your leg and foot. Incorporated into the biomechanical assessment is dynamic assessment (gait analysis), non-weightbearing, and weightbearing assessment. A footwear review will also be performed.
The results of the assessment will provide your podiatrist with the necessary information to formulate a treatment plan.
A biomechanical assessment by a podiatrist, followed by appropriate treatment will reduce injury and as a consequence time off in the workplace, especially in professions in which spending the majority of time on foot is a requirement.
At MacclesfieldPodiatry we will provide a detailed biomechanical assessment report that will outline findings and the treatment required to improve symptoms.
