Flat Feet and Foot Pain
Do you suffer from foot pain? Is it interfering with your daily activities?
What if we could address and treat the cause of the problem?
While there are many anatomical and lifestyle factors that can cause pain in the feet, most of the sufferers we see in this practice experience pain caused by ‘fallen arches’ or a dropped navicular bone which can lead to conditions known as heel spurs and plantar fasciitis.
Our patients are interested to learn that structural changes and imbalances in the feet can also lead to various secondary symptoms which can manifest in the form of:
• Knee rotation
• Pelvic tilt
• Dropped shoulder
Are you aware that structural problems of the feet, if left untreated, can also lead to problems of the hip, knee and ankle?
The team at Highett Health and Wellness encourage people suffering from foot pain consult with one of our experienced Chiropractors to check for misalignments of the bones in the foot.
Misalignments of the bones of the foot can be treated with a gentle and non invasive Chiropractic adjusting tool called an activator. Our principal Chiropractor, Dr Ashley Campbell-Bird commonly combines Chiropractic treatment with heat moulded custom fitted orthotics that help maintain correct alignment of the problem foot. The customer fitted othotics sold within our practice support the arch of the foot and prevent supernation (turning inwards) or pronation (turning outwards) when walking.
HOW CHIROPRACTIC CAN HELP
A combination of Chiropractic care and custom fitted orthotics helps our patients achieve natural and effective relief from pain caused by misalignment of the foot along with their secondary symptoms.
Our Chiropractors will conduct a thorough examination and bio-mechanical analysis before devising a personalised treatment approach.
