Foot & Ankle Pain Treatments

Let us help you put your best foot forward

YOUR FOOT & ANKLE

Do you suffer from any of the following common foot and ankle pains: bunions; hammertoe; pain in the front part of your foot; burning or numbness in the balls of your toes; heel pain; flat or high arched feet? You are not alone; these are some of the most common conditions that patients seek help for at Norfolk’s BxClinic.

Patients frequently helped by our treatments include athletes and those who run or walk a lot for exercise, people whose job requires constant standing, those wearing non-supportive footwear, particularly high heels, and people prone to diabetes or obesity.

At BxClinic our clinicians specialise in detailed gait analysis using sophisticated technology. The acupuncture we use in clinic works on the principle that the micro trauma caused by the needles, when correctly positioned, stimulates an immune response that accelerates the body’s natural healing capacity and brings pain relief.

ACUPUNCTURE FOR FOOT & ANKLE PAIN

  • foot acupuncture
  • When you foot pain is acute, you may be struggling to walk normally when you first come to see us. We always aim to undertake a thorough assessment of the correct functioning of your limbs and joints in your lower body (your biomechanics), to discover the underlying cause of your pain so we can eliminate it with appropriate therapy. If however your foot pain is such that you are unable to walk normally, we will need to alleviate the soreness before we undertake the assessment.

    Acupuncture is very beneficial for giving quick, effective relief from acute pain caused by common foot problems; particularly plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, bunions, big toe joint pain, arthritis, and neuroma.

    We often use acupuncture at BxClinic to complement our other therapies. The acupuncture we use in clinic works on the principle that the micro trauma caused by the needles, when correctly positioned, stimulates an immune response that accelerates the body’s natural healing capacity and brings pain relief.

Referrals

BxClinic specialises in biomechanics and we work within the scope of our practice and expertise to deliver the best possible care and outcomes for our patients. There are times when our assessments of a patient’s condition determine that the best course of treatment is with a clinician of a different expertise.

A good example of this might be a burning heel pain caused indirectly by a back problem; for example a trapped sciatic nerve. Treating the heel pain would be inappropriate, so we would refer to a partner clinic better suited to help with the back. Where appropriate we may also refer patients for scans.

We work with a range of partners including physiotherapists, osteopaths, massage therapists, Pilates teachers, sports rehabilitators and local specialist shops.
