We work with clients of all ages, dealing with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limb.
Chiropodists and podiatrists, deal with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limb. We work with clients of all ages, for example:
- Athletes and other sports men and women suffering leg or foot injuries
- Children with lower limb pain or problems walking.
- Diabetes sufferers with circulation or sensation problems in their feet
We also help older people to stay mobile and therefore independent.
Treatment and prevention of sporting and exercise foot problems vary by patient and specific injury or ailment. Treatments may include traditional care remedies such as rest, ice, compression or elevation—or may be treated more aggressively depending on the underlying cause of the injury and needs of the patient. The specific therapy selected will be tailored after discussion with the athlete and with consideration of his or her overall physical condition and goals.
We will also look at the gait and running actions of athletes to see whether the action is causing problems, in this way we can help athletes get into a condition that minimizes their risk of injury to the foot and ankle.
