Foot Health Care & Biomechanics Consultant

Your Therapist:  Tahir Khan

I am Tahir Khan the founder and owner of Optistride Orthotics and pes laetus foot health.

I was approached to take on a career in the medical field which I decided to pursue as I have a passion to help others.

I was inspired by my mentor a highly skilled Biomechanic consultant who has worked in the medical field for 30 years.

As a foot health practitioner I offer several treatments including: Ingrown toe nails, fungal or thickened toe nails, diabetic foot sore, athletes foot, corns, calluses, and verruca.

My main passion lies in the biomechanic side of my work because it allows me to treat more than one part of the body.

Biomechanical Assessment - We will examine your posture from top to toe looking at the position of the head, back, pelvis, knees, ankles and feet. We then discuss the findings with you.

Range of motion tests - We then carry out some tests on the range of motion of the articulated joints of the foot and toes, the motion available at the ankle and sometimes the knee and hip. Occasionally it is beneficial to test glute strength.

Results - We then discuss our findings with you to ensure you are aware of what the benefit of OPTI-STRIDE orthotics will be to you.

3D Foot Scan - Using the latest 3D scanning technology, we then scan both feet and take pictures of your Posture and foot position. This information is then sent to our Laboratory in Oxford where it is analysed and a program is developed to enable us to Mill off the highest quality, Millimetre perfect, prescription devices. These devices are then finished by hand with anti-bacterial non-slip top covers and double-checked by quality control.

Before I became a therapist I had a sports background and being healthy has been one of the most important features in my life.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
