LycaHealth’s foot and ankle pain clinic is available in two convenient locations: Canary Wharf, East London and Orpington, Kent. Our world-class clinicians will ensure your foot or ankle pain concerns are heard and acted upon, so that you can focus on getting better. From ingrown toenails to tendinitis, our team is here to help you.
We have vast experience in diagnosing and treating foot pain and ankle pain, and see many patients from a sporting background visit our clinics in Canary Wharf and Kent. You may be wondering why we see so many patients who work in sport, or have great involvement within it. This is because when doing sports, there is repetitive movement or high impact on the feet and/or ankles which can lead to foot or ankle injuries, resulting in discomfort and pain. Some of the common injuries can include a sprained ankle, broken or fractured bones and muscle or ligament damage. For those patients who have suffered a sports injury that is not specific to the foot or ankle, we recommend that they visit our sports injuries clinic.
However, it’s not just sports people who come to us with pain. Those who are regularly on their feet as part of their job, lift heavy weights, or have a genetic condition may also want to seek help from a foot specialist. Some of the common problems we see in our foot and ankle pain clinic in London include:
Whether it’s toe pain, aching ankles or heel pain, we’ve got the expertise to support you through to better physical health.
Some of the common causes of ankle pain and foot pain include:
Foot and ankle pain treatment varies depending on the foot or ankle condition. Plantar fasciitis treatment, for example, may involve taking anti-inflammatory medication or undergoing physiotherapy in order to alleviate aching feet. Conversely, recommended ankle pain treatment could require rest and painkillers. Our physiotherapists will work with you to find the best route of treatment for your health concern.
