Podiatrists diagnose and treat a wide range of foot and lower limb issues that can affect health and mobility. These include:
- Issues with toenails or skin such as thickened or infected toenails, corns, calluses or veruccas
- Other causes of pain and dysfunction such as Achilles tendinosis, plantar fasciitis, stress fractures, metatarsalgias (including Morton’s neuromas), Sever’s disease, and chronic ankle instability.
- They also commonly deal with other conditions within the lower limbs, including sports-related injuries, shin splints, runners knee and iliotibial band syndromes.
Treatment modalities can include minor procedures, manual therapy (manipulation of the foot and ankle joints), exercise and/or taping regimes and the provision of orthotic devices where appropriate. They can also advise on footwear. Bob also now offers radial shockwave therapy for plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinopathy
