FAQs about Muskuloskeletal Podiatry

Persistent or severe foot pain can be caused by various factors, such as injuries, overuse, arthritis, or structural problems. A podiatrist can identify the cause of the pain and recommend appropriate treatment.

This is a common cause of heel pain. Podiatrists can provide treatments like custom orthotics, physical therapy, and stretching exercises to alleviate pain.

During your initial treatment your podiatrist will take a brief medical history and then examine your feet and discuss your concerns. A treatment plan will be suggested and carried out with your agreement. You will be advised as to whether any further treatment is necessary or refer accordingly.

No that’s not necessary. Anyone can book an appointment with a Podiatrist, you don’t need a referral from your GP.

Please wear the shoes, sporting shoes or walking boots that you most commonly wear if they relate to the concern that you have. You may wish to bring a selection of different shoes with you. If you wear or have worn insoles please also bring these. This will allow us to assess whether your shoes could be contributing to the problem. If your concern is related to your nails then please remove any nail varnish prior to the appointment.

Custom orthotics (shoe inserts), are prescribed by podiatrists to address issues with foot alignment and function. They are custom-made to provide support, correct gait problems, and alleviate pain.
