Services we use to treat you
Resolve your heel pain
Diagnostic Ultrasound Consultation
Get to the bottom of the problem
There are at least 30 conditions that are known to cause heel pain. Without diagnosis you can't be sure that you are right.
Diagnosis is the most important thing that we do to help you.
With a proper diagnosis, it is easier to decide on a more appropriate treatment plan which in turn means that you are more likely to heal faster.
Through a holistic approach to Podiatry, we try viewing each patient as a whole rather than a single symptom to be treated. We will be asking lots of questions that relate to your injury and agree a plan with you going forward.
Bespoke Orthotic Therapy
Get a Prescribed Insole that's Right for you.
Many people buy their orthotics online after suffering with heel pain, but a poorly fitting or inappropriate orthotic will most likely not work. These orthotics may also make your condition worse meaning that it takes longer for you to recover and unable to do the things you love.
At Torbay Heel Pain Clinic, we measure your feet up to create a bespoke orthotic that fits you precisely. You will then have peace of mind in the knowledge that you have the right orthotic for your heel pain condition.
Clinically Proven to Heal Many Heel Pain Conditions
Shockwave Therapy (Extra Corporeal Shockwave Therapy) has been used in the NHS for some time as part of a treatment plan to heal soft tissue injuries (such as Plantar Fasciitis and Morton's Neuroma).
At Torbay Heel Pain Clinic we have been treating patients successfully using Shockwave and offer it as a package to our patients. It works by stimulating the body's own healing process thereby speeding up recovery time.
Shockwave Therapy has a proven track record in resolving heel pain issues and is one of the best treatments available today.
Guided Steroid Injection
The Safest Way To Get a Steroid Injection
Steroid Injections have been around for many years often administered by GP's. It has a proven track record in quickly dissipating pain so that you can go back about your day quickly.
At Torbay Heel Pain Clinic we use ultrasound to guide the needle in order to accurately place the steroid in the safest way possible.
Foot Mobilisation Technique (FMT)
Treatment To Manage Your Pain Without Orthotics
Have you tried orthotics to no success? Do you want to make your orthotics work better for you? Foot Mobilisation Techniques (FMT) could be the answer.
What is Foot Mobilisation Techniques (FMT)? Think of how an Osteopath manually realigns your spine in order to relieve you of your pain. FMT realigns every joint in the foot and ankle to treat the cause of foot pain, rather than simply treating the symptom. Mobilising joints increases synovial fluid which is vital in joint lubrication to improve joint movement. It can be used alone or alongside other therapies, making them more effective.
FMT is a manual therapy specifically developed to improve your foot and ankle function by targeting stiff, mal-aligned or dysfunctional joints to improve the function of your lower limb.
What can FMT be used to treat?
Achilles tendon pain
Ankle sprains and instability
