injury

Excel Podiatry are able to offer various treatment modalities to help you get back to your best. No two people are the same and as a result everybody has to have their treatment tailored to suit them.

Once the problem has been identified through a thorough biomechanical assessment we will be able to start developing a treatment plan for you. It is often thought that podiatrists just issue orthoses or insoles, while this is a major treatment option that will be beneficial for some people they certainly aren’t required for everyone.

Due to the sedentary nature of many of our jobs now it is easy to have inactive or tight muscles, part of any treatment will usually involve issuing various stretching and strengthening exercises. These weaknesses can quite easily be the cause of compensation, we often find someone who has weakness around the pelvis starts developing problems in the foot.

Manual techniques can be very beneficial in aiding recovery from an injury, whether it be an ankle sprain or chronic heel pain, hands on treatment can quicken the time to healing. At Excel podiatry we can offer a variety of techniques including dry needling, soft tissue manipulation and foot mobilisation techniques.

For those that require orthoses we are able to offer these to our patients. From off the shelf devices to fully bespoke we can help select the right device for you.
