Hands on clinic
We are amazingly created and all parts link together. To discover more how this is so you need to see a podiatrist who is hands on with their assessment and treatment, not a podiatrist who simply asks questions.
We love musculoskeletal conditions (basically anything to do with muscles and joints) and our thorough assessment takes into consideration how your body functions, walks and runs from your feet right up to your pelvis.
We use joint mobilisation, trigger-point release, strain-counterstrain, massage, laser, osteopathic techniques and acupuncture. For a quick summary of all these please refer to our additional courses table below.
We also love using all the mainstream podiatry tools – such as at-home exercises, strengthening, footwear and orthoses (shoe inserts/orthotics).
It is a combination of our training, additional courses and over 85 years of combined knowledge and patient care that enables Foot Focus Podiatry to best look after your foot and lower limb concerns. We work closely as a team which comes in handy for patients with more complex needs.
