Our feet can have a huge impact on our health and movement. High or low arches in the feet, differences in leg length or injuries from sports can all cause problems throughout the body. In some cases, we adapt to these differences with no problems, though often they can cause pain and injury as the body is forced to adapt.
At Fortius we have expert consultants in sports and exercise medicine who are at the forefront of their fields in providing expert care for athletes.
Cavus foot and shin splints are two very painful yet common conditions that a podiatry consultation can help diagnose and treat.
