Stepping Into Comfort: Expert Physiotherapy For Happy Feet

Stepping Into Comfort: Expert Physiotherapy For Happy Feet

Physiotherapy is a highly beneficial treatment for a wide range of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. From addressing injuries and illnesses to helping individuals with developmental disabilities and other forms of disability, physiotherapy is crucial in restoring mobility and promoting regular functionality.

One area where physiotherapy can be particularly effective is in treating foot-related issues. Our feet bear the weight of our entire body, so it’s no wonder that they can become overworked and prone to discomfort or injury. By providing specialised care and targeted exercises, we can address foot problems such as plantar fasciitis, arch pain, and foot instability, helping individuals find relief and improve their overall quality of life.

Dr. Nayna Boohla was incredible adjusting my twisted back and hips after a fall I took in the rain on holiday. She is very caring and incredibly knowledgable at chiropractic and Accupuncture. And only because of her I could continue my trip for another 3 weeks.

Yvonne is a miracle worker! I was in pain for months with lower back pain and nothing was working--went to Yvonne at Head to Toe and over time she has made my pain manageable and most days non-existent! She listened to me and we worked out a plan that included me getting back to the gym and getting off pain killers, and so far its working out brilliantly! I can actually move again and enjoy my life which frankly, didn't seem possible 6 months ago...I cannot recommend Yvonne highly enough-Thank you!

I had my first session yesterday! After years of injuring my back while working I’ve had masseuses refuse to touch it out of fear of damaging my back even more. I’ve had numbness in my arm, terrible sleeping patterns and my lower back locks up very often. Out of fear, I was nervous to try acupuncture but Nayna was so calm and made the process very relaxing. She took all the time she needed, clicking and relieving my back, neck, arms, pelvis and legs. I slept like a baby last night for the first time in ages! My back was so inflamed and I can now feel the instant relief after going only once. It is costly but so so worth it (in my opinion the expense of going to many cheaper places adds up and doesn’t have the same effect). I’m able to go about my day pain free and I’m not even taking any pain killers or anti inflammatories, I feel amazing! Thank you Nayna X

I went to Barry Murphy Mid April for physical therapy treatment due to ongoing pain in my left hip and lower back brought on from running. In short Barry was fantastic. Not only did he help alleviate symptoms he also gave me the tools and skills to ensure that I wont end up in the same place again. Thanks to Barry, I now have a much better understanding of my body and how it works and how to take care of it. Finally he's a lovely guy and completely put me at my ease.

Foot Pain Physiotherapy 

Having physio for your feet will help to alleviate pain and improve function in individuals suffering from foot-related problems. The most common foot conditions that can benefit from physiotherapy include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, flat feet, and bunions.

Our physiotherapist will conduct a thorough assessment to determine the cause of the foot pain and create a personalised treatment plan. This may involve a combination of manual therapy techniques, such as joint mobilisation and soft tissue release, as well as exercises to increase strength, flexibility, and balance in the foot and ankle. In addition to hands-on treatment, we will advise on footwear, orthotic devices, and lifestyle modifications to prevent future foot pain.
