In addition to our podiatrists who may utilise the benefits of foot orthotics (insoles), our clinical team also proudly welcomes Tom Woods – graduate Prosthetist and Orthotist – who can provide functional help on any part of the body.
In terms of a broad definition: Prosthetics are replacement limb devices; Orthoses are Body Braces and Supports.
Tom is a highly specialist practitioner with a first class honours degree in the discipline of Prosthetics and Orthotics. He has gained his knowledge and experience providing clinical services for some of the most prestigious hospitals across the country, including Kings College Hospital London, Guy’s and St Thomas’ and the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt “Gobowen” Orthopaedic Hospital.
Tom provided orthotic services to the British Para-cycling team during the run up the 2016 Rio Paralympic games.
The custom made carbon fibre ankle foot orthoses (AFOs) that Tom provided enabled their athletes to achieve goals that were previously unobtainable, including world records and goal medals.
As an example, Megan Giglia MBE is pictured below, winning her first gold medal and world record at the UCI track paracycling world championships in 2016, using the orthosis that Tom prescribed!
Tom offers a wide range of orthotic treatment including:
• Functional foot orthoses and Total contact inlays (FFOs and TCIs)
• Orthopaedic footwear and footwear advice
• Ankle foot orthoses (AFOs)
• Ligament knee braces
• Knee ankle foot orthoses (KAFOs)
• Spinal orthoses
• Upper limb orthoses
• Functional and sensory Lycra garments
• Dynamic contracture reducing orthoses
• Stance control KAFOs
At our fully refurbished clinic in Chester, we have complete access to the latest equipment which we use to provide all your treatments.
Our In Motion Clinic is easy to find on the main A41 in Chester (near Chester Zoo). We also have private, free car parking on-site directly in front of the clinic itself. (We are next door to ‘Spar’).
We look forward to helping you soon!
Due to the complexity of assessing and measuring for prosthetic limbs, orthoses, supports, & braces, Tom offers a full hour initial assessment.
As with most of InMotion’s clinical services, any follow-up 30-minute session massage is just £32.00.
I suffered various knee injuries during my 5 seasons at Liverpool Football Club and Mark Browes was instrumental in getting me back to fitness each time. Following operations by Dr Steadman in Colorado, Mark took me through the complete rehabilitation process. It is due to his skill and expertise that I was able to continue playing at both Premiership and International level, proving that with the right treatment and care, a serious injury does not mean the end of a career.
Our comprehensive list of available treatments
Whilst our team of Podiatrists can provide specific Lower Limb and Foot treatments, our Physiotherapists add much more.
We can provide the latest treatments for specific areas of pain. In your consultation and treatment we will discuss your massage needs and recommend the best approach for you.
We are proud to be Chester's first clinic to use an Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy Machine for the benefit of our patients.
Podiatry is the international name for “Foot Doctors”. It covers more specialist advice and treatment options than general Chiropody (routine foot and nail care).
