Dependent on the results of the diagnostic investigations, several conservative therapies can be used to attempt to resolve lower limb or foot, ankle pain.  

These may include:

  • Footwear advice.
  • Exercise and training advice.
  • Mobilisation techniques (foot manipulations).
  • Padding and strapping.
  • Interdigital silicone splinting.
  • Advice about off the shelf, or custom-made orthoses.

Testimonial

This is a double thank you – first of all for the orthotics you created for me last year, which made a massive improvement to my feet pain, with the persistent bursitis hardly troubling me now.  Also, for the recent adjustment you made to the right orthotic to relieve pressure from my 5th metatarsal.  I’m used to the different contour underfoot now, and Peter and I went for a long walk (long for me anyway) yesterday, 2-3 miles and my 5th metatarsal wasn’t sore at all, which is a big improvement and made the walk so much more enjoyable.  So thank you for being able to make that adjustment immediately and for it to make such a difference.  I will continue to recommend you to anyone having foot problems!
