Lower limb and foot conditions can be caused by many things, including tight or ill-fitting footwear, poor foot posture, poor general posture or conditions such as bunions or in-growing toenails. Some problems are relatively simple to rectify, with footcare and footwear advice making a significant difference. Other conditions – which are a result of prolonged damage or neglect – will take a longer, more sustained treatment programme and commitment from both Katriona and yourself.

After the initial assessment, Katriona will discuss her findings with you and devise an effective, evidence-based treatment plan.
