Gait Analysis Team
NOW offering combined private assessments

The M Bill Physiotherapy Clinics & David Mill Podiatry Clinics now offer a combined ‘Gait Analysis’ Service, for children and adults.

Having worked as a team for over 10 years both in the NHS and privately we are now offering the only private joint Podiatry & Physiotherapy assessments clinic in the Somerset region.

The clinic works closely with General Practitioners, Insurance Companies, Rehabilitation agencies and Medical/Surgical Consultants, treating Self Paying and Insured clients to provide a service for:

• Individuals concerned that they may be wearing incorrect footwear for walking/specific sports/casual exercising. Having such an analysis is likely to drastically reduce injuries associated with wearing the wrong footwear.
• Parents who notice and are concerned about their child’s walking ability or pattern.
• Individuals who wish a less time consuming treatment combined approach to the treatment of chronic discomfort or injuries to the lower limbs

Treatment plans vary significantly based on the individual needs of each client. However, the following approaches serve as the foundation of our treatment program:

• Computerised Force Plate or other diagnostic testing
• Establishing a functional baseline.
• Assisting and educating each person so that they may better understand the complexities of the specific problem(s).
• Selecting the appropriate functional orthoses device, if necessary.
• Refining existing prosthetics, orthotics, and/or shoes for proper alignment and fit.

Based upon individual assessment findings, physiotherapy components of the treatment plan may include:

• Balance and coordination exercises
• Flexibility and strengthening exercises
• Gait retraining and rehabilitation work
• Electrotherapy

Remember you do not need to be referred for treatment by your doctor.

Heritage Open Day’s Success 2003  

Bridgwater again opened its doors to show off its hidden architectural treasures to residents and visitors. Town Centre Manager Wendy White said, “ The sun shone and the day was well supported with over 2,000 registered visitors at local venues. The Charter Hall, which had a display of the Town Silver, had 183 visitors; St Mary’s Church had around 250 visitors. Local band “Mozi” added musical entertainment and raised £128 for BIBIC. Dr Peter Cattermole provided mediaeval walks around Bridgwater and members of the Sir William Godolphin Regiment of the Sealed Knott and the Burnham Town Cryer and his good lady, added colour to the occasion. I am grateful for all the volunteers and venues involved with this years event.”

The full programme in Bridgwater included the Masonic Hall, County Court Chambers, Unitarian Chapel, Magistrates’ Court House, St John’s Church, St Mary’s Church, Bridgwater Fire Station, Somerset Brick & Tile Museum, The Charter Hall, Twentieth Century Wave Machine at Sedgemoor Splash, The Mediaeval Old Vicarage Hotel, 18th Century Kelting Room at Bridgwater Arts Centre, The Engine Room Media Centre and Blake Museum.
