Foot and leg pain

Foot pain and pain in the lower leg can affect all areas of your life, and after a while can get you down.

Foot pain is common. We expect a lot of our feet on a daily basis. Every step requires the foot to adapt to the ground and withstand forces of up to three times your bodyweight while it propels you forward. If you are having trouble moving or suffering from pain, come on in and see us at Shellharbour Podiatry.

Frequently asked questions about Foot and Leg pain

Should I see a podiatrist about my pain?

Podiatrists have been expertly trained (at university) to specifically understand the way the foot works and the reasons why people have pain in their feet and legs. If you are suffering from an injury that is not improving or have recurrent pain or loss of movement in the lower limb then a podiatrist can help you.

My feet are sore when I first get up in the morning and after sitting down. Google has told me I have plantar fasciitis. Can you help?

Yes! This is a common presentation of foot pain and often relates to pain in the heel. We will assess your foot, which may involve referral for x-ray or an ultrasound, and develop a treatment plan.

Why do feet get sore?

The feet do a lot of week each day. Each step transfers up to 3 times your body weight through the foot. It takes time for the feet to adapt to changes in their use and this is often when they first become sore. Increasing exercise, change in jobs, traveling or even moving house can be enough to start the foot pain cycle.
