Common foot problems frequently seen in physio clinics:

Achilles Tendinopathy

Inflammation or wear and tear changes in the tendon in the lower calf above the heel.


Pain in the sole of the foot, often worse in the morning.


Pain in the ball of the foot or base of the toes.


Or ‘Hallux Valgus’ is a condition when the big toe might point towards the other toes and a bony bump appears on the side of the foot. 


A flattening or overarching of the foot.

 Stress fracture

A small crack or severe bruising of the bone usually caused by overuse or repetitive activities.

 Ligament strains/sprains

An overstretch of the supporting structures of the joints during a trip or fall.


Degenerative condition that affects the joint surfaces.

 Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

A compression of the posterior tibial nerve creating pain along the side of the foot.

 Severs Condition

Growth related heel pain, often in active children from primary age to young teens.


Insoles can improve how pressure is distributed across the sole of the foot.  If not corrected, there may be toe deformities and loss of function through biomechanical change.

Many foot problems require orthotic solutions and modifications can be made to adjust the support of an insole.

Orthotics should follow the anatomical features of the foot to aid balance and stability.  This in turn can provide a base of support for hip and knee function.

Quite often, a lower limb problem can actually be improved from foot posture correction.

Making your feet more comfortable!

Our physiotherapists are able to advise suitable suggestions, such as heel cups, toe spreaders, etc which can help with relief from pain  and can be purchase on line.
