Sports podiatry treatment information
The first step in providing Sports Podiatry treatment is to conduct a comprehensive biomechanical assessment.
This includes an examination of the patient while sitting, standing, walking and if applicable running. Once we have diagnosed the problem and identified the cause a tailored treatment plan can be made to get you back on your feet.
Treating lower limb biomechanical problems can include custom made or prefabricated foot orthotics (inserts for your shoes modified to suit you) to improve alignment and function. Suitable footwear and sports shoes may also be a part of this plan along with stretching exercises and advice on ways to control inflammation such as ice etc.
