The foot is an incredibly complex part of our anatomy, comprised of bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels. Our feet are also constantly in use and under stress, so is it any wonder most of us will run into foot related problems or injuries at some point in our lives?
While foot injuries are most commonly sustained by athletes, they can occur to anyone at any age. Ailments may be related to incorrectly fitted footwear, occupational stress, overuse or overtraining, weakened tendons or muscles, and trauma.
If you are tired of suffering from foot pain, metatarsalgia, plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinopathy, or want to have your gait or footwear analyzed, take the first step. Book an appointment with Tamara Bond-Vlad at Life Therapies in Ottawa. Tamara is a registered physiotherapist and certified manual therapist with a special interest in the foot and ankle.
