Please read how the foot and ankle work before reading the following.
Our feet take a pounding in our lives and wearing poor footwear, incorrect leg alignment, weaknesses further up the leg back and pelvis and inefficient sporting technique can increase the chance of developing problems in that part of the body. Foot posture changes with age, like the rest of your body, and this too can predispose to certain conditions.
We work closely with the top foot and ankle specialist Orthopaedic Surgeons to ensure that if physio and osteo alone cannot resolve your problem fully, we can send you to the very best for surgery.We will give you the right information, advice and exercises to prepare you fully for surgery so that you can make the most of your surgery and achieve your goals after it.
Post-surgery, there is a fine balance between ensuring you rest, avoiding certain movements or positions to prevent damage to vulnerable structures, and simultaneously ensuring the correct movements are made at the right time to prevent contractures, secondary complications and substandard recovery. It is crucial to work closely with your consultant, physio or osteo who know where this balance lies and can confidently lead you on your path to full recovery.
It is very important that you understand the reasoning behind predicted timescales of return to training, and factors that will affect this. We will make sure to give you as much advice as we can to help you achieve a smooth return to activity and achieve your goals, in as little time as possible, without cutting corners.
