PROBLEMS WE SOLVE

PROBLEMS WE SOLVE

Systemic Conditions

Systemic conditions affect the feet and legs as part of affecting the whole body. At times, the effect on the feet has an even greater impact through impairing your mobility and smooth function of the lower limbs. While we cannot cure systemic conditions, we can help lessen the impact on the feet and legs, reduce pain, increase comfort and improve the overall quality of life.

 

Diabetes

Diabetes

Diabetes has a large impact on your feet. If you have diabetes, there is a serious risk for developing an infection and ulceration if care is not taken.

Gout

Gout

If you have gout or know someone that does, you’ll know how excruciatingly painful it can get when you have an ‘attack’ or ‘flare up’ of gout. Gout is a type of arthritis and this can often be confused with the ‘wear and tear’ arthritis we often see - Osteoarthritis.

Joint Hypermobility Syndrome

Joint Hypermobility Syndrome

This is often coined as being ‘double jointed’ or just very flexible, without putting in the months of stretching beforehand.
Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy

It describes as the damage to your peripheral nerves, that is, the nerves to your hands and feet. Damage to these nerves interrupts the important sensory information pathway between the limbs and the brain, resulting in changes to what you feel.
Peripheral Vascular Disease

Peripheral Vascular Disease

Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) is an arterial disease causing a reduced blood supply to parts of the body, which in this case are the feet and legs.

Pregnancy and the Feet

Pregnancy and the Feet

The load on the feet increases dramatically due to normal weight gain and postural changes associated with pregnancy. This sometimes coincides with swelling of the feet and ankles which may limit footwear choices.

Two weeks with Calcaneal Spur and finally got to see Doc. He sent me to Kevin @ Eleven and with One Appointment, he had me walking without Crutches. Yes! It still hurt. Did the Stretching, Rolling my Foot on a Spikey ball and Iced it occasionally. Return visit, after he had his Holiday, and I' am walking fine. They do NOT want to see me again, unless it deteriorates. Which it has not :-)
