We have a foot care specialist in Bollington for those suffering from painful feet. Mark Hughan is our Chiropody/Podiatry and Biomechanics Therapist who works with professional athletes and the general public. He brings to our practice an impressive 25 years’ experience as a State Registered Chiropodist and holds the Diploma in Podiatric Medicine. Our feet act as our shock absorbers and that’s a demanding job. Exercise strenuously for an hour you subject your feet to a million pounds of pressure. Just walking requires your feet to support one and a half times your body weight. So, with 26 bones, 33 joints and 5 ligaments in your feet, what could go wrong? As it turns out, plenty can go wrong and all of it causes pain. The pain may be felt in your feet or if your walking gait is off, the pain might be felt in your hips or lower back.
The good news is our physiotherapist specialising in podiatry and biomechanics can help manage and relieve the pain and often correct the underlying cause. For sufferers in Bollington, a foot care specialist can often remedy the problem in one visit. Ingrown toenails, especially of the big toe, are extremely painful due to the many nerves concentrated in the arc. Fortunately, the condition can be treated and relief is almost immediate. Plantar warts on the sole of the foot are painful but we can get rid of them and help prevent a recurrence. We can also treat corns and calluses that cause discomfort when wearing shoes. We welcome you to our clinic for treatment of all these common but unpleasant conditions.
A foot care specialist in Bollington can determine if your pain is caused by tiny stress fractures in your foot or tendonitis. For that we can provide guidelines to follow that will allow the bones to heal and precautions to take to prevent further fracture. The study and understanding of biomechanics is essential for treatment because it dictates how we should move correctly. Whatever your foot pain, contact John Griffiths Physiotherapy. Through gait analysis and correction, physiotherapy, or a simple surgical procedure we can provide relief.
