The foot is a highly detailed and intricate part of the body, with close relationships between the many bones, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues. A problem in one area of the foot can quickly lead to problems not only elsewhere in the foot, but also the knee, hip and lower back.
Like the hand, the foot is a very intricate and proper testing is needed. We strain and stress all the structures (like muscle, tendons, ligaments, joints, etc.) to determine what needs to be done. We don’t simply treat the symptoms, our goal is to identify, address and correct the underlying cause of the problem to get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
The foot is an amazing anatomical structure. One quarter of all the bones in your body are in your feet. Each foot contains 28 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 10 muscles; and over 250,000 sweat glands that produce as much as 250mls of sweat per day.
