Foot and Ankle Physiotherapy
Let Us Help
The Foot and Ankle can present with many injuries that may require, Physiotherapy, Podiatry intervention or even Surgery if required. With the foot having 28 different bones, 33 joints, 19 muscles, and over 100 ligaments a review with a Foot and Ankle specialist should be undertaken to get an accurate assessment and treatment. We will examine your Foot, Toes, Ankle and your Lower limb including the Knee, Hip, and Pelvis assessing Muscular Imbalances, Stability, and Strength. We will assess your gait using video analysis and a range of tests to determine your dysfunctions in your Foot and Ankle. There are many Foot and Ankle injuries that Stuart assesses and treats, an example of some of the most common injuries we see are listed below.
Ankle Ligament Sprains
Achilles Tendon injuries and Ruptures
Flat Feet (Pes Planus)
Syndesmosis injury (high ankle ligament injury)
We also see other Uncommon conditions
When you visit your Foot and Ankle Specialist Physio for your assessment in the Edinburgh clinic, it involves a detailed history of your Foot or Ankle condition, discussion of your goals and an examination. This takes between 30 mins to 60 mins. The examination will consist of looking at your Foot, Ankle the Knee and Hip. Stuart will check your Foot dynamically and passively to determine how your Foot functions. Due to many injuries being contributed from other areas we want to check if there are any Muscular Imbalances or Biomechanical Dysfunctions contributing. Together with your Foot and Ankle Physiotherapist the best course of action will be determined.
