People of all ages with a variety of foot and lower leg problems wear foot orthoses. These include elite athletes, who are often prescribed orthoses by their podiatrists to help maximise their performance.
For the rest of us, orthoses may simply be a valuable long-term solution in the treatment and prevention of foot, ankle, hip, knee and importantly, lower back pain.
They also help with the rehabilitation of acute foot conditions such as tendonitis, recurrent ankle sprain and stress fractures.
Infants to adults
Foot problems in adult life can often be prevented through early intervention in childhood. By the age of 12 a young person’s foot has nearly reached its adult size which is why early childhood is an important time for correction of any developmental and structural abnormalities.
For this reason, parents need to be vigilant about problems that can arise and, if necessary, seek the advice of a podiatrist.
When your child begins walking, it’s important to look for signs that may indicate abnormalities in their structure and development.
Warning signs could include an awkward walking style, painful and tired legs, flat feet, pigeon toed, corns, blisters or calluses.
In adolescents/teenagers, we treat various ankle, heel, knee and lower back related sporting injuries.
On a side note, there is no such thing as “Growing Pains’. If a child is complaining of pain, something is wrong.
In adults, we treat people with conditions such as Diabetes, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, poor circulation and numbness of the feet.
