What To Expect

When you come to gait analysis appointment at Reflex-18 Sports Injury Hub in Colchester, we will perform a full assessment, tailored specifically to your needs. Then, using the RS Footscan technology, we will take some scans of your feet while you are standing still and either walking or running. This will give us instant data along with graphical representations, so that we can talk you through exactly how your foot moves and what this means to your risk of injury.

If necessary, we can then design custom orthotics for you, based on the data we collect. These insole designs are then sent to the podiatrists at orthotic experts Phits, based in Belgium, who will check the design and produce a 3D printed orthotic, for whatever shoe you want to use it in. Within two weeks, you will return to Reflex-18 Sports Injury Hub to have the insole fitted. You are then good to go, knowing you have exactly the right insoles to support your feet.

  • 5 star review  Really pleased with the treatment received from Josh at Reflex-18 for a frozen shoulder, culminating to a long kayak trip today. At one point, pre treatment, I did wonder if that would be possible again as I couldn’t even put a coat on without assistance. And importantly, I felt COVID-19 safe throughout, witnessing thorough cleaning pre and post appointments. Many thanks Josh. 👍🏼

  • 5 star review  The rehabilitation programme I received was delivered in a professional and appropriate manner. All sessions were relaxed, I felt I could ask questions and feel very much a part of my recovery process. Sincere thanks to all at Reflex18 but a particular thank you to Alice who guided me through some difficult times.

  • 5 star review  I had to take my daughter to see Josh recently as she was experiencing knee pain whilst running. The treatment, advice and care she received were first class and have helped her recovery to running fitness. I would not hesitate to recommend Josh to anyone who needs help in terms of injury or just good advice.

  • 5 star review  Josh was simply amazing. I visited Reflex-18 after my 4th knee surgery and had completed the physio that the hospital had prescribed which was fine for walking but not getting back to sport. Josh started by just taking an interest in the activities that I wanted to get back too and understanding the movement that was necessary. We took everything back to basics and started again by just learning to squat and making sure that my bodyweight was evenly distributed and we saw very early in it wasn’t. The exercises I was given to rectify this were easy to do at home but didn’t feel like ‘boring’ rehab exercises which you soon give up on. 6 months after seeing Josh I am back to full mobility and I am probably moving better than I ever have and more importantly pain free! Can’t thank Josh and Reflex-18 enough as never in my wildest dreams did I expect to where I am again let alone less than 6 months or so after seeing him.

  • 5 star review  Josh's knowledge is second to none and always goes the extra mile to make sure you're getting the best recovery. Highly recommended!

    thumb Shaun Bokenham
  • 5 star review  I developed a severe back problem over Christmas to a point where I couldn’t walk unaided. Thinking it was going to be a long recovery ahead I have been amazed by the work Josh does - he has fantastic knowledge and I felt I could fully trust him - 4 appointments in and I feel far better than I thought I would. Fantastic physio!
