    Descriptive info: Arthritis & Your Feet.. The term arthritis is a very broad one and comes under the heading of Arthropathies:.. Arthros comes from the Greek word for joint..

There are several different kinds of arthropathies but the most common ones affecting the feet are rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout,  ...   developing corns, calluses, ulcers and other common foot conditions.. Treatments at Feetsavers are based on best medical practice.. Proper management of the arthritic foot ensures that you ll continue to walk with a spring in your step!..

    Descriptive info: Pronation and supination are the names of the two normal movements which take place in the lower ankle (sub-talar joint) as we walk.. When the heel hits the ground the foot pronates, i.. e.. rolls inwards, and the arch lowers.. As weight is moved onto the ball of the foot the opposite movement, supination, should occur.. Biomechanics -.. What is biomechanics?.. Biomechanics is the application of mechanical principles to the movement of the lower limb.. Ever heard of:.. Tensegrity.. The Windlass Mechanism.. Double Pendulumss/li>.. The Rail Effect.. The Locke Manoeuvre.. The Sagittal Plane Theory.. Ankle Equines.. Hallux Abducto Valgus (HAV).. Why would I need a biomechanical assessment?.. If you suffer from shin splints, continuous heel pain, knee pain, hip pain, back of leg pain, back pain, ball of foot pain, weak ankles or tired and aching  ...   restore the natural position of your foot.. The type of orthotic you need depends on your foot type and on the way your foot changes position when you walk.. With the correct orthotic your foot is able to return to its natural position and function.. Orthotics will prevent damaging over-compensation in your other joints, ligaments and muscles thus reducing pain and discomfort.. Are orthotics the ONLY option?.. That depends on the findings of the biomechanical assessment.. If you have pain and we can relieve it, then we will discuss the various options available.. At feetsavers we believe that if it s not broken, don t fix it! Your biomechanical assessment can tell a lot about the hips, knees and lower back as well as address foot pain..

    Descriptive info: Image 2a.. Bunion FAQ.. What is a Bunion?.. A bunion is a bony protuberance at the base of the big toe.. The big toe often angles in towards the second toe, a condition called hallux abducto valgus, and the tissues around the joint may become swollen, red and sore.. Movement of the toe often become restricted and painful.. What causes a Bunion?.. It surprises many people, but bunions are, in most cases, hereditary.. They are most common in women and are caused by a structural abnormality of the bones and the joint between the big toe and the foot.. So if your mother or grandmother had a bunion you may be susceptible to bunions.. It is the foot-type and not  ...   this can accelerate changes in the bony framework of the front of the foot.. Bunions can also form due to arthritis, limb length discrepancies, weak ligaments or injury.. Image 2b.. Can a Bunion be cured?.. Unfortunately, without corrective surgery, a bunion cannot be cured when it has started to form.. However, in most cases, a bunion can be managed with conservative methods such as padding (by your podiatrist), appropriate footwear, orthotic devices and /or anti-inflammatory medication.. Surgery is a last resort and should not be considered for cosmetic reasons.. Bunionectomies are complicated procedures and are not always successful.. Age, activity levels, the extent of the deformity and pain will be taken into consideration when deciding if surgery is the only option..
