Your feet work tirelessly day in and day out with the average person taking 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day and walking 128,000km in their lifetime.
There are 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments in each foot.
The most important step in the treatment of foot pain is to accurately diagnose what is causing the pain.
It is important to find out exactly what structures are involved and establish how they have been injured before beginning treatment. This generally involves taking a detailed history, diagnostic scans and a thorough musculoskeletal assessment.

Don’t let foot pain stop you doing the activities you love!
