Injuries to the foot and lower limb make up a large proportion of sporting injuries. Podiatrists examine the foot and lower limb, have a knowledge of the biomechanics of athletic movement, diagnose foot conditions and can recommend appropriate footwear, training regimens, and, if needed, orthotic devices to fit into the sports shoe. Common sporting injuries include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, stress fractures, ankle sprains and shin or knee pain.
Orthoses are custom- made shoe inserts made specifically to reduce a foot pathology. Podiatrists are trained in prescribing and manufacturing orthoses, and at Bayside Foot Centre we pride ourselves in using the highest quality materials available. They are made by various techniques to align the structure of the foot in its most functionally efficient position.
Podiatrists diagnose and treat children’s foot problems by careful examination of the foot, and lower limb, where required. We offer advice for the prevention or reduction of foot deformity which often develops later in adult life, which may involve information on appropriate footwear, advice on exercises and/or orthotic control of the feet. Podiatrists also treat common, chronic and acute problems of children’s feet such as “growing pains”, sore heels/arches and flat feet.
