Some musculoskeletal conditions that are commonly treated by Podiatrists include:
- Heel Pain or Plantar Fasciitis
- Shin Splints (Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome)
- Stress Fracture of the foot
- Ankle Sprains
- Achilles Tendonopathy
- Knee or back pain
A Podiatry consult may include a thorough medical history examination, functional testing such as observing your walking or running, muscle testing, vascular and neurological assessments.
Treatments may include padding, strapping, stretching, or strengthening programs, orthotic therapy, dry needling, massage/mobilisation, x-ray or ultrasound investigation and referrals to specialist services.
