Foot pain is defined as discomfort felt in the toes, heels, arches, soles or other parts of the foot. It is an issue experienced by most people at some stage of their life, yet should not be considered normal. Our foot pain podiatry treatments can help ease discomfort in the feet and ankle, making walking and running easier.
Although sometimes foot pain is only short lived, on occasion it continues for an extended period. When this occurs you should seek help from a podiatrist. Foot pain is typically caused by a number of common factors. These include lifestyle issues such as wearing unsuitable shoes, becoming overweight or pounding the feet on hard surfaces. Our podiatrists also treat ankle and foot pain caused by medical conditions like diabetes, or an injury too.
As we all know, the ankle is the joint connecting the foot and leg. It is surrounded by a group of ligaments and tendons to give it mobility and strength. It is a part of the body that absorbs a lot of stress and is prone to injury. As podiatrist we treat ankle pain on a daily basis and could help you in a variety of ways, to reduce or eliminate any ankle pain you are suffering.
