At Birmingham Physiotherapy, we offer cost effective Podiatry Services with our HCPC registered Podiatrists/Chiropodists.
We provide full biomechanical assessment and gait analysis as well as providing custom made orthotic devices for you.
We can do this as a stand-alone service or in conjunction with a musculoskeletal assessment.
In addition, we provide Chiropody clinics by appointment.
Plantar Fasciitis is a very common and painful condition. Up to 1 in 10 people experience this condition at some point in their lifetime.
Plantar fasciitis means inflammation of the Plantar Fascia, which is a strong band of tissue that stretches from your heel to the bones in the middle of your foot. Pain is the main symptom and is often worse first thing in the morning, when you take your first steps or after longer periods of rest. Sometimes the pain will ease during the day but can get worse with longer walks or being on your feet a long time.
It can affect people of all ages, all jobs as well as athletes or those who prefer more gentle exercise.
Regardless we can offer a comprehensive package of treatment, to help your pain and get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.
We offer Plantar Fasciitis clinics, each week, generally on Wednesday, where we can provide:
- Biomechanical Assessment and Gait Analysis
- Supply of orthotic devices
- Injection therapy
- Extracorporeal Shockwave treatment
- Rehabilitation programme and physiotherapy treatment
