Alignment conditions, Bendigo

Incorrect alignment of your toes, feet, ankles, knees and hips can make walking comfortably a difficult task. Left untreated, these sorts of problems can lead to other health concerns and affect your quality of life. You don’t have to live with painful or embarrassing alignment conditions, they can be treated and the sooner you seek professional attention the better the outcome will be for you or your child.

As your podiatrist in Bendigo, we treat a variety of alignment conditions for clients of all ages, from children through to the elderly. Conditions affecting alignment include turned, flat or rolled feet, twisted toes and bunions to name a few. These sorts of conditions can be alleviated and sometimes even corrected with professionally fitted orthotics.

Orthotics are specially designed and fitted inserts, insoles or shoes which are designed to make walking more comfortable for people with painful foot alignment concerns such as bunions. For certain conditions orthotics can correct the issue, children quite often have particularly good outcomes with correction as they are still growing and the alignment of their feet, ankles, knees or hips can be re-trained. Something which is important to remember is that choosing your own orthotics can be fraught with danger as the wrong shoe or insert can exacerbate the issue, making it worse.

A podiatry appointment will determine the extent of the issue and what the best course of action will be for you to ensure you can walk comfortably and enjoy a quality lifestyle. Quite often what parents of children or adults think are knee or hip problems can actually be foot or ankle problems which are affecting the alignment of your knees or hips. If you or your child experiences pain walking or has a visible alignment concern, such as turned feet, the best thing to do is make an appointment and gain a professional insight into the issue. We will develop a podiatry treatment plan and recommend the right orthotics as part of this plan.

We are specialists in bunion treatments and other alignment conditions. Please contact us to make an appointment and take a step closer to walking freely. We also provide sports podiatry in Bendigo.
