Treating Knee and Ankle Pain
We are a trusted podiatrist in Chapel Hill because our treatments are so extensive. We understand that there are many reasons why ankle pain can develop, and we know how knee pain can be completely debilitating. We use a range of therapies designed to relieve pain and treat the problems that cause the pain, whether it’s in your foot, knee or ankle.
Our treatments include shockwave therapy, mobilisation, orthotics, biomechanical interventions, prolotherapy injections, corticosteroid injections, and much more. We will take every step possible to ensure that you get the treatment you need, and we’ll even perform diagnostics to find out exactly what’s happening. We can also order a range of off-site investigations such as X-Rays when needed.
A Solution for Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome (and so much more!)
Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is a common problem that the people of Brisbane often come to us for help with. It is characterised by a tingling or burning sensation felt in the foot, usually at night time or during periods of rest. The problem gets worse the more active a person is, though the pain is typically not present while walking or being active. While the pain is often felt across much of the foot, it usually doesn’t affect the heel.
It is caused by pressure pleased on the Posterior Tibial Nerve, which usually occurs in people who have fallen arches or “flat feet”.
We can help ease this pain and take steps to counter the problems that cause it.
Our team of podiatrists can help you with a huge variety of other conditions, too! We offer full diagnosis and treatment services, follow up appointments to see how you’re doing, and we’ll provide you with all the advice and support you need to make a full recovery where possible. We are trusted by so many clients because we offer excellent aftercare and reliable, effective treatment for a huge variety of conditions.
