These conditions could be caused through sporting injury, structural abnormalities or an alteration of mechanics in the back, hips, knee or ankle. Common examples include heel pain or plantar fasciitis, achilles injuries, arthritis and shin splints. Our Chiropractors, Physiotherapists and Podiatrists work closely together to offer the best package of care and treatment plan for patients with these conditions, resulting in a quick recovery and effective resolution of the problem.
