Diagnose the pain in your feet
Neil, Beth and Gavin are able to provide an accurate analysis of the way you walk, stand and support your posture. We can correct the alignment of your feet, ankles, knees and back, by customising the weight bearing shape and position of your feet.
Identify the cause
Let’s look at a common term “Plantar Fasciitis” associated with foot pain. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia, a band of tough tissue connecting the heel bone to the toes, becomes irritated or inflamed. Heel pain, worst in the morning when getting out of bed, is the most common symptom. Arch pain may also be present.
Remove or treat the cause
With the right treatment, the pressure can be removed, the arch supported and the foot pain removed.
Alleviate the discomfort
Our podiatrist in Leichhardt, Marrickville and our Sydney Offices can assist you with appropriate rehabilitation techniques and exercise to alleviate any ongoing discomfort caused by your injury.
Correct alignment so your feet can be pain-free, stable and comfortable
A weight-bearing orthotic insole can be custom made and inserted into your favourite pair of shoes to provide ongoing comfort and support for Plantar fasciitis pain.
As you can see there are different types of foot pain, each requiring attention to detail and a customised treatment. Please request a callback and get Neil to stop the pain and get you back on your feet.
