Podiatry

Our podiatrists work with our team of specialists to analyse a wide range of orthopaedic conditions and design a personalised treatment plan for each patient. You will normally be referred to a podiatrist by one of our orthopaedic surgeons, although you can contact us to ask for a direct referral if you prefer.

Patients attend the podiatric clinic from a wide range of sports - including track and field athletics, skiing, football and rugby - and have access to a variety of treatments. These include temporary or customised orthotics, best trainer/footwear advice and, where appropriate, a structured training or rehabilitation programme.

You may be referred to a podiatrist for a number of reasons including:

  •     Activity related lower back pain associated with foot posture
  •     Any activity related pain affecting the foot and ankle
  •     Ankle instability (re-occurring sprains)
  •     Functional Knee pain or other knee conditions
  •     Foot profile concerns (pronated or supinated feet)
  •     Iliotibial band (ITB) syndrome (runner’s knee)
  •     Exercise induced shin pain (shin splints)
  •     Metatarsal pain on activity (metatarsalgia)
  •     Morton’s neuroma

Podiatry is concerned with the way our lower limbs function, checking for abnormalities and possible causes of pain in the foot, ankle, knee and back.
Cavus foot and shin splints are two very painful yet common conditions that a podiatry consultation can help diagnose and treat.
