Put your best foot forwards
Looking after our feet is very important. They carry our body weight and help balance us, and any foot problems that occur can affect our knees, hips, and back. If we don’t pay attention to the uncomfortable or painful signals our feet may send us, we could seriously impact our posture. Our experienced team at Footworks Podiatry in Devon can help you regain your confident posture and put a new spring in your step by assessing your feet’s health and their overall effect on your body.
Potential Posture Problems
Your joints such as your knees, ankles, and hips can be greatly impacted by your postural issues. Most of these begin in your feet and travel up the rest of the body, causing discomfort and distorted posture. Issues with your feet can have a knock-on effect to the rest of your body, so if you’re noticing problems with your posture or stance, you may need to visit your foot doctor.
A joint effort
One of our dedicated podiatrists can assess the way you walk, hold yourself when stationary, and your general posture to help us build a picture of your potential foot problems. We can employ strengthening exercises, massages, and stretching to help adjust any problems that may be affecting your posture or gait, so you can stride with pride again.
Our experienced team of podiatrists are dedicated to delivering the highest quality of care at all times that is completely tailored to you. We have invested in state-of-the-art technology like OptoGait, which provides precise video gait analysis, to ensure the best treatment for our patients.
