Conditions We Treat
At Brighton Road Podiatry, you can consult with us about the treatment you need for the following conditions.
Some conditions of back pain are related to poor foot posture, gait anomalies and/or limb length differences. In these cases a biomechanical assessment is required
Bunions (Hallux valgus)
“Protrusion” or “lump” of the 1st joint which may limit movement of the big toe and cause an “aching” pain or stiffness of the joint. You may find it difficult to find shoes that fit comfortably and properly. Occurs as a result of a bony deformity.
Feet are for life and we believe it is extremely important to quickly and carefully identify any developmental issues that children may have with their feet. Children may have foot problems without experiencing pain.
We provide advice, assessment, diagnosis and gentle and considerate treatment for gait problems, flat feet, footwear advice, in-toeing, knock knees, shin pain, painful ingrown nails, plantar warts, temporary insoles and prescription orthotics.
Some indicators of developmental foot problems may be “tired” legs, flat feet, feet turning inwards/outwards, bouncy gait and/or toe walking.
