In this week’s article we will focus on the knee, which as the research suggests, is the number one site for running injuries with the patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) being at the top of the list.
Here at South Dublin Podiatry, we understand that every one of our patients leads a busy and demanding life and sometimes a scheduled appointment may no longer suit.
As runners we tend to develop a love-hate relationship with our feet. We love them as they can carry us for miles, after all an average human will walk 5 times around the world in their lifetime.
Before we start, let’s look at What exactly is an ingrown toenail? An ingrown toenail is one that pierces the flesh of the toe. It may be extremely painful and inflamed or infected.
A bunion, or hallux valgus, appears as a bump which develops at the base of the big toe. It forms when your big toe, or hallux, pushes against the second toe. This forces the big toe joint to stick out and get bigger.
We are delighted to announce that South Dublin Podiatry Clinic will now be opened from 9am to 5pm every Wednesday. Call 083 8241454 to book your appointment today.
Orthotics, also known as orthoses, are devices inserted into shoes to correct an abnormal or irregular, walking pattern. They range from felt pads to custom-made shoe inserts which allow people to stand, walk, and run more efficiently and more comfortably.
Last week we discussed in detail what are corns. This week we will talk about something we are all familiar with – calluses. Have you ever wondered what exactly is a callus, or how it forms on your skin? These extra-tough patches of skin are generally quite useful
