With the enormous rise in sporting activity in the last few decades comes an increase in a wide range of sporting injuries. Some require surgery or casting but the majority are lower grade albeit significant enough to hinder or prevent exercise.
Many people mistakenly try to work through injury or take up sport with inadequate equipment or a lack of knowledge about their chosen activity, this can all lead to chronic pain and loss of function.
Treatment and recovery may require dedication from the patient and as a Podiatry clinic we are able to help with a wide range of injuries such as shin splints, sprains and tendonitis and liaise with other health professionals eg. Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Acupuncturists.
