Foot and Ankle Clinic: Reasons to see a Foot Doctor in Brisbane.
Virtually all muscle, joint and ligament pain in the feet can be treated by our foot doctor in Brisbane. Often these problems are caused by poor foot mechanics (the way bones, joints and soft tissue interact and move) and can be solved completely. Even incurable foot conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis that cause pain in the feet can be relieved if the foot is made to work more efficiently. Consider that, if you had a sore joint anywhere in your body, and the way that your body used that joint lead to the two bone ends coming together with more force than they needed to, you would expect more pain. By coming for assessment and treatment our foot and ankle clinic, where we can make the joints work more efficiently and more gently, pain can be reduced, even where the underlying condition remains.
† If, when on your feet for an hour, you suffer foot, leg, back, shoulder and neck pain, the trail of painful areas makes it likely that the higher pains are foot related. If you have headaches but no trail, it is not likely that the feet are the problem.
