Foot and Leg Pain

Podiatrists are lower limb specialists and sometimes an imbalance at the feet can lead to pain further up the leg. Gait and posture imbalances can be the root cause of hip, knee, ankle, forefoot and even lower back pain.

A thorough biomechanical assessment will be required to assess the cause. Bringing all relevant history and footwear to the appointment is essential to assess accurately.

A biomechanical assessment can also be a great way of preventing future injuries also. Some common injuries include:

  • Forefoot pain
  • Achilles pain
  • Knee pain
  • Heel pain
  • Forefoot pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Ankle Pain
  • Shin pain
  • And the list goes on….
