Suffering From Serious Foot Pain? Our Doctors Can Provide the Treatment You Need

Often we develop problems with our feet and legs simply because of the way that we are designed! Some people have flat feet, some have high arches, some have legs, which bend one way or another, and there are many other subtle differences in how we stand and walk. We are all variations upon a theme; and it turns out that some variations are less ideal than others! Oh, well…

Other people may have grown up OK, but then had a change in the way that they function — perhaps as a result of an injury, or a medical problem.

Treat Foot PainProblems which are associated with differences in our structure and function include:

  • Heel pain
  • Achilles tendon pain
  • Toe deformities (of many kinds)
  • Bunions
  • Pain under the feet
  • Leg pain/Knee pain/Back pain
  • Excessive formation of corns and callous
  • And much else besides!

If we identify a biomechanical factor that is causing problems for a patient, then there are a variety of ways that we can help. These include:

  • The use of customised insoles (“orthoses”), which make you function in a more ideal manner. These orthoses may be made in a laboratory, or made at our office, using our computerised Amfit® CAD-CAM system, which can scan your feet and make custom orthoses at our office.
  • Advice about footwear
  • Stretching advice
  • Advice with training techniques for sports people

In many cases, we can completely resolve symptoms related to biomechanical problems.

Body Tech Treadmill

This is the latest in foot analysis technology, allowing us to look at your foot position, balance and stability when you are standing, walking or running.

Orthotics

Our feet change shape over the course of our lifetime and experience stress and load from walking on hard, unyielding surfaces. Changes in the way the foot and leg functions can lead to increased stress and and strain on joints, muscles, tendons and other tissue.

Children’s Foot Health

Children’s feet are not just smaller versions of an adult’s foot. Up until 6 months of age the feet are mostly just cartilage and the last bone to develop doesn’t start until the age of 3! The bones in the feet don’t fully form until approximately 18 years of age.

Footwear Advice

We can advise you on many matters relating to your feet, legs, walking, sports, footwear, skin care, and a lot else. We keep up to date with the latest thinking in all areas of podiatry and foot care, and are happy to provide you with information on a variety of topics.

Gait Analysis

Gait analysis involves much more than simply looking at your feet and shoes when you are walking.

Laser Therapy

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is the application of red and near infra-red light over injuries or lesions to improve wound and soft tissue healing, reduce inflammation and give relief for both acute and chronic pain. A laser is a device that emits light. Low Level Laser Therapy or ‘Cold’ laser uses low intensity, coherent light in specific wavelengths to penetrate into tissue without hurting or heating the skin or body tissue.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy is used by podiatrists for a number of foot and leg problems, including for pain relief, wound healing, rehabilitation, as well as keeping elite athletes on their feet and doing the work they need to do.

Trigger Point Therapy And Acupuncture

Dry needling/ trigger point therapy uses solid fine needles which are inserted into muscle tissue to release over-active muscles and provide pain relief. Trigger points are tight bands of muscle tissue that can cause pain and myofascial pain pathology syndrome.

Joint Mobilisation

Joint mobilisation is a manual therapy technique whereby a trained practitioner can safely move a skeletal joint (typically a synovial joint) throughout its range of motion using small gentle passive movements. This is done to help restore range of movement to stiff joints and to provide a therapeutic pain relieving effect.

Diabetes Foot Health Check

Having diabetes puts people at a greater risk of developing foot complications such as nerve damage and circulation problems which can lead to foot ulcers and/or amputations.

Utrasound diagnosis and therapy

Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment modality used to promote tissue healing, local blood flow, localised heating effect and scar tissue reduction. It has been used in practice for the last 50 years. The most common injuries treated with ultrasound are ligament and muscle injuries such as sprains and strains, tendinitis and muscle spasm.

General Podiatry

General podiatry assessment involves examining the nails, skin, foot structure and the general health of your feet.
