One of the most frequent things that we hear about foot pain is that it is not recognised by health care practitioners and/or patients as being abnormal. This is certainly not the case here at Waikato Podiatry Clinic. We know that foot health and pain free feet go a long way towards improving a person’s quality of life, allowing them to function freely and have a high level of independence. Foot pain is the type of thing that will grind you down. People will often say that you can tell by the look on a person’s face that their feet are sore. Foot pain is a complex problem because the foot deals with extremely high loads – often 4-5 times your bodyweight on a single foot – plus it has numerous joints and hundreds of ligaments. The best place to start with foot pain is an appropriate diagnosis and a well-structured treatment plan. To get these you need to see an experienced, highly qualified and well trained podiatrist from Waikato Podiatry Clinic.
