Overuse injuries are frequently caused by abnormal foot biomechanics. Using specialised gait analysis these can be identified and treated successfully. In some cases, orthotics may be recommended as part of your treatment.
Using the latest 3D foot scanning technology and video gait analysis, JS Podiatry offers professional custom made orthotics (shoe inserts) specifically designed and tailored to address individual needs.
Shockwave therapy, also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a multidisciplinary device used by podiatrists and other sports physicians with the main benefits being fast pain relief and restoration to function and mobility. It is used for persistent soft tissue injuries such as;
Plantar fasciosis (heel pain)
Chronic achilles tendonitis
ITB friction syndrome (ITBFS)

Nail surgery is a common procedure performed by podiatrists to treat an ingrown toenail. Surgery is usually an option when conservative treatment is no longer effective and the soft tissue repeatedly becomes infected as a result.
High Risk Foot Assessment
Conditions such as diabetes predispose your feet to complications such as ulceration, deformity and even amputation. Assessment and regular monitoring are essential allowing early detection and prevention of such complications.
