Foot Pain

There are many areas of the foot upon which we put undue strain or pressure. Thus, over time, these areas can end up manifesting with problems such as clawed toes, bunions, callus/corn formation, flexed big toe and dorsal mid-foot pain.

The feet are constantly under pressure or undue strain. Each day they are crammed into ill-fitting footwear and hours are spent standing, walking or exercising over unforgiving hard ground. Over time this build up of strain leads to wear and tear of foot structures and eventually results in common foot conditions such as clawed toes, bunions, callus/corn, rigid big toe and dorsal mid-foot pain, and heel pain. So, foot pain can refer to any pain or discomfort in one or more parts of the foot and compensation can then also lead to pain higher up the body: knees, hips, lower back, neck etc.

Foot Pain


Biomechanics is the science concerned with the internal and external forces acting on the human body and the effects produced by these forces. A biomechanical assessment identifies whether or not your muscles and joints are working together in a proficient manner. For a podiatrist, it is important to examine how your body relates to or is affected by the movement of your legs and feet. Hips, back, poor posture, headache, nerve pain and neck pain can all be attributed to problems with the feet and lower legs. A biomechanical assessment can provide an excellent outline of how your joints and muscles work during exercise.

Due to daily forces on our feet, they are constantly changing and thus compensating for structures that are weakening. When our feet can no longer compensate effectively it results in pain. Pain isn’t always a bad sign, it is an indication that something is wrong and needs to be changed/treated.

This depends on the chosen treatment. However, unless local anaesthetic is used there should be no reason why driving would not be advised post-treatment.
