Both the ankle and knee are complex joints and are very much affected by the way you walk and by the posture of your foot.
If you are experiencing pain in your ankle, knee, or both, it is best to have your feet and lower limbs assessed by a competent podiatrist.
The attending podiatrist will examine the following preconditions to ascertain the biomechanical make-up contributing to your knee or ankle pain:
- Position of the hip and knee
- Alignment of the pelvis
- Stability of the ankle and pressure on the feet
Past injuries and accidents are also considered in order to thoroughly determine the performance of these complex joints.
Our podiatrists at The Fresh Foot Centre have experiential competence in the field of knee and ankle pain management, especially when the pain is associated with poor foot function. Through correcting the balance of the foot and the alignment of the lower limb, we will be able to lessen the knee and ankle pain and reduce dysfunction.
The The Fresh Foot Centre team has many enduring years of experience to correctly assess and diagnose your foot and lower limb ailment. For more complex conditions, we have case discussions with the patients wherein we collaborate and coordinate to procure the best management option for our clients.
We have state-of-the-art 3D foot imaging laser scanner and computerised pressure plate system which we utilise to assess conditions and make the right orthotics when needed. Our appointments and orthotics can be requested on the spot using your health insurance with no referral necessary. We can directly refer for X-ray, ultrasound, and/or MRI if required.
