Footwear Assessments

 What ailments can be caused by incorrectly fitted shoes?

 

These include:

 

 

  • Bunions – can present as a swelling or deformity of the first joint of the big toe.

 

  • Blisters – can be caused by a range of reasons, but a friction blister is usually caused by tight shoes that create irritation through the foot rubbing against the shoe.

 

  • Metatarsalgia – this condition is when the ball of the foot becomes so inflamed it can be unbearable to stand or walk.

 

  • Corns and callouses – can be caused by continuous friction between the foot and the shoe, which can be avoided by wearing correctly fitted shoes. 

Our Podiatrists are able to conduct and assess whether your current shoes fit correctly and make recommendations if not.
