A neurovascular assessment appraises the nerve function and circulation of your feet in order to determine your potential risk of future foot problems. Diabetes, peripheral vascular disease and advancing age all affect the nerve function and circulation of your feet.
"Metatarsalgia" is a term used to describe generalised pain in the forefoot. This can be caused by a myriad of factors, but may be eased through specialist footwear advice and provision of bespoke devices.
Rheumatoid arthritis may present initially as pain in the feet. Whether you have painful feet and don't know why or you have long-standing rheumatoid arthritis and require help to feel comfortable, please get in touch to see how a podiatrist can help.
Biomechanics is a branch of podiatry which deals with foot problems relating to your anatomy (muscles, tendons, ligaments and skeleton) such as abnormal foot function, joint alignment, muscle flexibility and gait (walking) patterns rather than physical complaints (corns, calluses, ingrown toenails…) that relate to pressure, poor footwear etc.
