Are you experiencing pain from Arthritis?
Arthritis can affect all joints but in the legs most commonly seen in the knees, ankle and toes. Symptoms can be mild through to severe, making daily activities difficult.
How can we help? Podiatry can help by reducing stress on the joints, easing pain to make movement less difficult. We take pressure measurements so we guide you on shoe choice, orthoses can sometimes be very helpful and strengthening exercises to help stabilize the joints. Other treatments which can help include gentle mobilisation of the joints, dry needling and shockwave.
