Podiatrists treat a wide range of foot and ankle problems. They are experts in the analysis of foot mechanics in other words, how the foot functions when we stand or move. Some of the conditions treated include: Achilles tendinosis, other foot tendinopathies, 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 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.
