The Footcare Centre offers a wide range of treatments for runners, ball and puck players. Chiropodists/Foot Specialists can offer the sporting community a ‘full house’ of advice and treatment services for their feet.

Comfortable athletic shoes are important, so why not ask your chiropodists/foot specialists advice on your running shoes – ensure you have the correct shoe for your foot type.

Are you ‘Pronated’, ‘Highly-pronated’, ‘Supinated’, ‘Highly-supinated’ or ‘Within norms’?

For the novice and advanced runner this is a confusing area, so let a chiropodist take a look!

More complex sports-related problems or recurrent injuries can be assessed by your chiropodist. A full bio-mechanical examination and gait analysis can be performed to help determine why the injuries are occurring. We can help speed healing of sports injuries through combination of taping, exercises/stretches, low level laser therapy, ultrasound, shockwave therapy, custom foot orthotics, and footwear, depending on an individual’s specific needs.

A demanding athletic programme poses friction problems. Blisters, toenail traumas and corns or calluses can develop as a result. These conditions can be assessed and treated by your foot specialist/chiropodist too.

If you commonly participate in sporting activities and would like more information about how to keep your feet and ankles healthy, as well as learn more about your treatment options if injured, we recommend you speak with us for professional guidance and care. Call us to book now.
