If you suffer from aches and pains in your feet, ankles or lower limbs, if you're struggling to get back to your sport after an injury such as tendonitis, muscle tears or strains, after a trauma, if you're scared that exercising might cause more damage or you're just feeling a bit "stuck" with your pain and recovery from it, one of our specialised appointments are for you!
PAIN AND INJURY ASSESSMENT
If you are having pain when running, walking or during activities, with certain footwear or pain in any of the following areas: foot, ankle, heel, achilles tendon or with plantar fasciitis.
Some call it Sports Podiatry (like ourselves), some biomechanics, some stick to MSK or musculoskeletal medicine.
Essentially, they are all the same thing, the diagnosis and management of various disorders that affect bones, joints and soft tissue like muscles, tendons or ligaments.
Lasting around 60 minutes, this appointment encompasses a full assessment of joints, muscle strength and flexibility and getting a detailed history of your pain to create a clear picture of why you are in pain and what the cause is. A customised treatment plan is created for you to get you back to doing what you love.
