Foot Pain/Biomechanics

Foot pain is often related to abnormalities in gait (how you walk) or foot posture (the standing position of your feet). Abnormal biomechanics can cause stress to the skeletal system and other bodily structures such as joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons and can be a major factor in:

 

  • Plantar fasciitis/fasciopathy
  • Heel painForefoot pain
  • Neuroma
  • Achilles pain and injuries
  • Ankle pain
  • Knee pain
  • Aching feet (muscular and joint pain)
  • Painful corns and callus
  • Shin splints
  • Tendonitis/tendinosis

 

At Winchester Podiatry our podiatrists will undertake a detailed biomechanical assessment to gain a full understanding of your condition. This will include a full medical history, gait analysis and a thorough discussion about your problem and how it is affecting you and your activities

This information is then used to develop a treatment plan and may involve one or all of the following:

 

  • Footwear advice
  • Stretching exercises
  • Strapping or taping
  • Medication advice
  • Advice on hot and cold therapies
  • Prescription orthoses (insoles). We can prescribe either `off-the-shelf`, semi-bespoke or bespoke devices depending on your specific needs.
  • If appropriate, liaison with other health professionals for treatments or imaging.
