Lower limb and foot conditions can be caused by many things, including tight or ill-fitting footwear, poor foot posture, poor general posture or conditions such as bunions or in-growing toe-nails. Some problems are relatively simple to rectify with foot care and footwear advice making a significant difference. Other conditions which are a result of prolonged damage or neglect will require a long-term personal commitment to a more sustained treatment programme.
After the initial assessment, Louise will discuss her findings with you and devise an effective, evidence-based treatment plan.Make an Appointment
