Improving walking and standing

one boy and his dog_0006Various reasons may cause individual’s to have an altered or inefficient walking.  My input will aim to:

  • Remove or reduce the need for insoles: particularly in children
  • Address anything that interferes with the “normal” pattern of movement
  • Improve strength and balance reactions
  • Carry out specific and strengthening and /or stretching needed.

Please feel free to contact Pam for further information and advice.
