welcome to Footworks Orthotics

We are a specialist Orthotic & Bio-mechanics clinic providing treatment for issues typically affecting how we move, specifically; foot instability; leg or  back pain and balance (see below).

Our clinic is located within Berkeley Centre Health Lower ground floor,3 berkeley Square. Clifton. Bristol BS8 1HL.  Appointments 01173701177.  Please note that our clinic unfortunately has no disabled access.

CV19 UPDATE: We are conducting face to face consultations in a Covid 19 secure environment but virtual appointments are still available.  We have taken action to re-design our clinic space to keep you as safe as possible and have increased our appointment slots to allow for cleaning of rooms between clients. 

Disposable 11R Face Masks and hand sanitiser are available for you to use when in our clinic

On a happy note … your practitioner, Martin Bell, is undergoing twice weekly CV home testing to ensure his fitness to practice. This is a huge milestone and gives us all a glimmer of hope for the future!


If you are shielding a family member or within a vulnerable category we are delighted to be able to offer routine and review appointments by telephone or via Skype/whatsApp/Face Time/Zoom. We have had great feedback regarding these sessions as many conditions can be identified and resolved without face to face treatment.

For now we extend our very sincere wishes to all our clients and their families for health, wellbeing and hope at this time.

Footworks Orthotics owner, Martin Bell, works as an extended scope practitioner for the NHS musculo-skeletal GP service treating complex hip, knee and foot injuries.  He provides specialist training for GP’s, health practitioners and walking groups, related to his area of expertise.

His specialist interest is Lower Kinetic Chain Dysfunction, an instability of the interconnected leg and hip system which causes flat feet, poor knee control, loss of balance, hip/back pain and can leave you fatigued and disinclined for exercise.

Receive tailored training to; correct poor foot posture, improve your knee control, restore hip and buttock function, correct poor posture and transform balance.  As feet are so vital in maintaining the stability of the entire lower limb, Prescribed Custom Orthotic insoles can be enormously beneficial and can be prescribed to improve your foundations and leg control.

Recognising the similarity and frequency of walking related injuries seen in both his NHS and private clinics, Martin created ‘Perfectly Poised‘,  to teach ladies how to improve their strength, balance and walking posture.

As seen in the media and on BBC, ITV, Daily Mail, The Times, The Sun, The Express and more.
