At Acorn Clinics we recommend that sports people, at all levels of sport, should have their feet assessed. Many sports injuries and overuse injuries can be caused by and or aggravated by poor foot mechanics.
Injuries that are often seen in our clinic include:
• Heel Spurs
• Achilles tendonitis
• Shin Splints
• Knee and hip pain
Different sports will place different demands on the foot and leg; this is one of the reasons why it is important to wear the correct shoes for your specific sport. It is also very important to have your feet and gait assessed to identify any issues or potential problems.
Our podiatrists are specialised in:
• Biomechanical Assessments
• Gait analysis
• Orthotic Prescriptions
• Foot Mobilisation Therapy
• Injury prevention
If you require orthotics as part of your treatment protocol, we manufacture our own custom prescription orthotics on site, and we also carry a range of symptom specific orthotics. All adjustments, repairs and refurbishments are also carried out in our own laboratory.
