Incorrect Foot Postures
The foot is the foundation of the body. Therefore, the way that our feet function can affect the whole body. If you have low back pain, knee, ankle or foot pain it is possible that it is caused by poor function of your feet.
Some of the most common complaints caused by poor foot posture seen at Parkview include Achilles Tendonitis, Ankle Strain Plantar Fasciitis and Shin Splints. Booking a biomechanical assessment will allow your podiatrist to better assess your foot function and advise you on the causes of the pain, as well as the best treatment options. These will often include a stretching and or strengthening regime, footwear advice and orthotic shoe inserts.
