Podiatric Rehabilitation

Newcastle Podiatry - Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Much like physiotherapy, podiatric rehabilitation of the foot and lower limbs are designed to strengthen and return you to your optimal level of both sport and general activity.

Rehabilitation of injuries requires care in structuring and designing specific programs that will suit both the patient and the injury. Some of the common injuries we prescribe rehabilitation programs for include ankle injuries, muscle strains and tears, knee pain/injuries, instability and even lower back pain in certain circumstances.

Programs may also include physical therapy and possible Shockwave therapy or Prolotherapy. Physical therapy may involve massage, taping, joint mobilization and exercises.

It is most important that an accurate diagnosis is made prior to understanding any rehabilitation program. This requires accurate and skilled assessment which will allow us to guide your treatment in the best possible manner.
