The foot and ankle are essential in staying active and mobile. Injury to either the foot or ankle can cause significant disability and disruption in your life.
Once we have diagnosed your problem we are able to plan further management. To resolve most problems and reduce the risk of complications, we always investigate non-surgical treatments first. Only if these approaches fail or surgical treatment is the right option will we recommend surgery.
We are fortunate at Healthplus Foot and Ankle Clinic to offer ExtraCorporeal Shockwave therapy (ECSWT) for certain conditions.
