"The structure of your feet and how you stand and walk on them are the foundations of your body"

Podiatrist & Podiatric Expert Witness Stephen Kite BSc (Podiatric Medicine) started practising in private practice Podiatry in 1987. His first private practice was based in Torquay, Devon and is the founder of The Stephen Kite Practice based in Dorset. He qualified in 1986 and has continued his professional development for over twenty-five years. As well as general Podiatry matters he prescribes fully functional prescription orthotics that can help realign the body naturally, and can often solve problems that can occur as a result of an abnormal walking gait. "The Greek word "Gait" means the mannerism of walking, “Orthotic” comes from the Greek word meaning straight". For example, the rolling over of the feet and excess pronation can cause the lower leg to rotate internally, potentially causing ankle, knee, hip and back problems. Prescription orthotics help to hold the foot in a more “neutral” straightened position and are specific to the needs of each individual patient thus helping to prevent abnormal wear and tear and thus avoiding drastic foot surgery and it's possible complications.
