In Acorn Clinics we treat the foot and leg as a mechanical unit, so for this reason we do not treat the foot or leg in isolation. If you are experiencing aches or pains in this “mechanical unit” it is possibly caused by a biomechanical issue
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.
