What is Musculoskeletal Podiatry?
A musculoskeletal podiatrist will assess the loading forces that act on the foot and lower limb that can cause tissue injury; be that the soft tissue, ligament or bone. They combine this data with other contributing factors such as flexibility (either being too flexible or too stiff), muscle weakness, footwear, environmental factors etc. Once a clear picture has been established they are then able to formulate an appropriate treatment programme to regain full function. This may include orthoses, injection therapy, taping, mobilisations or referral on to expert physiotherapists for the appropriate exercise programme.
