During an initial consultation with our experienced podiatry team, we will fully assess your feet and take a full history of your symptoms. Your podiatrist will discuss a specific treatment plan for your condition and organise a unique management plan to reduce your symptoms and improve your condition. We also have a video library of rehabilitation exercises in our patient resource which your podiatrist can discuss with you.
The team at Maidenhead are experts in treating the foot and ankle, utilising the onsite diagnostic imaging service at The Bridge Clinic. A Gait analysis / Biomechanical examination may be booked following an initial consultation to identify the cause of mechanical stress on the plantar fascia or foot structure, caused by walking or running. An infra-red pressure assessment http://www.rsscan.com/resources/3697-2/ may also be used to provide data to analyse increased forces through your feet. Orthotics are useful for certain symptoms of plantar heel pain which are prescribed to you to improve symptoms and offload areas of the feet caused by mechanical inefficiencies.
