More and more of us are now consulting podiatrists (formerly known as chiropodists); perhaps we're beginning to realise that the old saying "when your feet are sore, you're sore all over" has more than a ring of truth to it. We've certainly come to appreciate that our mobility, independence and quality of life are valuable assets that should not be taken for granted.

Diabetes is a condition that can have a great effect on your feet. It is important to have regular reviews with your podiatrist. During which they will assess:
- Your ability to detect pressure and vibration
- An assessment of the blood flowing down to your feet and other vascular conditions such as atrial fibrilation
Biomechanics is the science concerned with the action of forces on the body - pains and discomforts throughout the foot and ankle are best diagnosed and treated via a biomechanical assessment
On completion of the assessment, the findings will be discussed with you and recommendations made for the most appropriate treatment, which may include exercises, restoration of joint mobility, insoles or 'orthoses', or a combination of these.
Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.

Martin has worked wonders with my feet. Pain free and comfortable. Thoroughly professional and extremely friendly, he is worth driving a round trip of 2 hours to see. Excellent practice. Thank you.
I recently had an appointment with Ollie at Instep. I am a healthcare professional and was really impressed by his really thorough assessment and expert honest opinion. I would highly recommend him.
I have been a patient of Rachel's for a number of years now and the professional care is absolutely brilliant.
Can't recommend highly enough.
