A podiatrist create, after an appropriate clinical examination, equipment designed either to relieve painful areas or to realign a general static posture which is causing problems.
In fact, conditions in the upper limbs, and in particular in the spinal column, are largely linked to postural imbalances caused by a bad static posture and so are often linked to problems that chiropody can treat.
- Tendonitis (inflammation).
- Problems with the foot structure (flat feet, valgus, varus, hollow or arched insteps).
- Metatarsal pain (inflamed and painful insteps).
- Morton’s Neuroma (inflammation and acute pain often in the third or fourth inter-metatarsal space).
- Talalgia (pain in the heel).
- Plantar fasciitis (pain in the heel and in the whole base of the foot).
- Length difference in lower limbs.
- Herniated disc.
- Athletic pubalgia.
- Knee pain.
- Femoral-patellar syndrome (problems with the kneecap axis).
- Heel spur.
- Tarsal sinus syndrome.
- Hallux valgus (bunion)
- Claw or hammertoe
When walking or practising sports, the foot is put under a huge amount of mechanical constraints, amplified by any extra weight, a posture problem or the use of inappropriate shoes (shock absorption problems or inadequate ankle support for example).
- A treatment which will aim to remove, using sterile equipment, your epidermal conditions.
- A pair of orthopaedic soles after an in depth clinical exam.
- Silicone orthoplasty to avoid blistering between toes or to reposition them.
