We treat all types of foot related pain; utilising Gait Assessment to accurately target your source of pain
Our feet are very important to us but are often overlooked until something is wrong. The daily stress of walking and running, especially when wearing tight, heavy and ill fitting shoes can lead to conditions such as:
fungal nail infection
At All Podiatry Services we can treat these and other conditions easily and painlessly. We specialise in general foot care and provide gentle procedures with modern equipment and sterilised instruments.
Medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), tibial periostitis or shin splints is a common injury that affects athletes who engage in running sports or basic activities that require constant weight training. This condition is characterized by pain in the lower part of the leg between the knee and the ankle.
MTSS injuries are caused by repeated and excessive loading to the muscles of the lower leg surrounding the tibia. Ignoring this injury may result in a more serious condition such as a stress fracture of the bones, chronic exertional compartment syndrome and nerve entrapment.
These conditions often have many overlapping symptoms and correct diagnosis of the cause of pain or discomfort is necessary in order to choose the most appropriate treatment.
Most people experience heel pain with their first steps in the morning, after getting out of bed or after prolonged rest. It can present as a sharp stabbing pain at the bottom or front of the heel bone or as a dull ache. Heel pain usually can subside to some extent throughout the day as the swelling around the area settles.
After periods of inactivity heel pain will return more severely, as does the swelling. During rest, the Plantar Fascia ligament tightens and shortens.
When getting up body weight is rapidly applied to the foot and the fascia must stretch and quickly lengthen, causing micro-tearing of the fascia band.
Hence, the sharp heel pain with your first steps in the morning. Heel pain, heel spurs and Plantar Fasciitis can be treated – in most cases – with simple, non-surgical methods as it is mostly a biomechanical problem.
Video Gait and Foot Pressure points analysis is used to improve walking and running techniques and is becoming more and more important in sport’s therapy.
It provides the ability to assess, plan, and treat individuals with conditions affecting their ability to walk
It is also commonly used in sports biomechanics to help identify efficiently, posture-related or movement-related problems in people with injuries.
