NO SPRING IN YOU STEP –
IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG?

PAINFUL FEET

Your feet may ache at the end of a long day but by morning they should feel as good as new.

Most pains can be treated conservatively by a Biomechianics Podiatrist, Orthotist or Physiotherapist.

If that doesn’t relieve the pain, then it is worth getting it checked out.


SORE TENDONS

The tendons around the ankle, the Achilles (behind), tibialis posterior (inside) and peroneal tendons (outside), can become inflammed, tight or stretched out.

Streching before excercise, significantly reduces the chance of damaging or tearing these structures.  The correct footwear is also important.

A Physiotherapist, Orthotist or Biomechanics Podiatrist can keep you on the right track.

If things don’t settle you may need a scan to see exactly what’s going on.


DEFORMITY

A change in the shape of your foot indicates that the biomechanics of you feet have altered.

This can be due to a variety of reasons.

If you have no discomfort, or mild to moderate pain, a Biomechanics Podiatrist or Orthotist can usually get you comfortable.

If this is not sufficient for your needs or you have severe pain, there are a number of treatments, including surgery, which can get you back to putting your best foot forward.


INSTABILITY

You shouldn’t really have to think about your feet.  If you don’t trust them, then something is not right.

Repeatedly going over on you ankle is often a sign that the ligaments may be stretched or torn.

A Physiotherapist, and Biomechanics Podiatrist or Orthotist can help.

If things don’t settle, then you may benefit from a scan and possibly an operation to get you back to full fitness.
