Established in Perth in Western Australia in 1991, Cannington Podiatry offers friendly and professional advise and treatment for a wide range of foot ailments. We specialise in general care, nail surgery, paediatrics, sports and orthotics.
Your feet contain nearly a quarter of your bodies bones. In the lifetime of an average person, the distance walked will be in excess of 128 000 kms. The force with which your feet contact the ground with each walking step is on and a quarter times your running body weight. This may be 2-3 times your body weight when running.
Combined with the fact, we spend most of our time walking on hard concrete surfaces, the wear and tear on our feet is enormous. There are over 300 identified foot ailments.
Of course your foot's function and alignment will influence the entire lower limb and may have implications to ankle, shin, knee, hip and lower back pain.

Orthotics are an in shoe moulded device, used to support, align or improve function in the foot. Foot misalignment and dysfunction will often manifest in the feet.
Tingling or numbness in toes, pain under or at the back of the heel, arch soreness and ankle pain are common implications of this. However, often the result of foot dysfunction is felt in the lower leg, shin splints for instance.
Knee soreness, particularly when climbing stairs or crouching is a common repercussion of poor foot posture.
Children who complain of leg aches, knee soreness and seem to fatigue quickly, even with normal walking, need to be reviewed by a Podiatrist. Another common complain in children, particularly boys, is pain at the back of the heel during or after exercise.
