Podiatry

Podiatric biomechanics has been taken to advanced levels in recent years with entire university degrees being dedicated to the understanding of it. It involves the assessment of the structure, alignment and function of the feet and legs.

Welcome to South West Podiatry within Pro Physiotherapy practice

We are a private podiatry and chiropody practice located in Wimbledon and Earlsfield in the South West of London. Our experienced team of podiatrists provide the highest level of care for a wide range of foot, ankle and lower limb conditions.

We focus on all areas of Podiatry and Chiropody, from complex foot and ankle pain including sports injuries and insoles/orthotics to surgical intervention of ingrowing toe nails. We routinely treat common foot problems such as appropriate nail cutting, fungal nail infections, corns, verrucae, arch and heel pain. You can find more information on the common conditions that our podiatrists treat at South West Podiatry clinic under common conditions.

Podiatric Biomechanics

Podiatric biomechanics has been taken to advanced levels in recent years with entire university degrees being dedicated to the understanding of it. It involves the assessment of the structure, alignment and function of the feet and legs.

The average person takes between 5,000 to 18,000 steps per day. This low-grade but repetitive motion can place stress on the foot, legs, pelvis and spine predisposing to pain and discomfort. If you have a low-arched (pronated) or high arched (supinated) foot then you may be more predisposed to problems. However, muscle inflexibility and weakness, footwear and activity levels can all affect function.

A detailed assessment of underlying structure and function can help to identify factors that may be causing or contributing to injury or lack of performance. The use of shoe insoles can help to control the way in which the foot and therefore legs function and thus reduce risk factors associated with injury.
