Lower limb injuries are not uncommon with running, let alone any other sport or just day to day.  The podiatrists at the Accelerate Performance Centre can help in a variety of ways.
Shin pain, tight calf’s and sore achilles tendons can all be fairly debilitating. Then there are ankle issues, not just from twists and sprains. There is also plantar fasciitis and soreness or inflammation through the other tendons and ligaments of the foot.  This is where a visit to see a podiatrist can really help.
Tight muscles and fascia can be released, ankles and feet mobilised. This in itself can add up to a release of tension so that the healing process can begin.

You should see a Podiatrist (Lower Limb Specialist) for:

  • Calf and shin pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Ankle and foot mobility
  • Achilles pain and swelling
  • Twists and sprains.
  • Walking and Running Gait Analysis
  • Insoles and Orthotics

‘Ankle and Foot Mobilisation’
One of the many treatments available to the APC podiatrists include ‘Ankle and Foot Mobilisation’. This can help relieve many related issues within the lower limb and improve alignment of the leg.  Often mobilisation has a quicker than expected impact, sometimes even immediate.  Mobilisation is will help to:

  • Unlock stuck joints
  • Reduce pain in both joints and structures that cross the joints
  • Improve movement patterns immediately
  • Change neurological input and output from a joint

All of the treatments provided are ideal across all ages, fitness levels and abilities. Following an initial meeting and treatment, a plan of action will be agreed with you and if required further consultations booked.  If you are looking for advice regarding Orthoses and Insoles then please book in as a ‘New Patient’.

The Accelerate Performance Centre podiatrists are:  Abbie Dagg  and Colin Papworth
