Do your thighs or lower legs ache or feel heavy? Are they painful or tingling? Do they appear swollen, red or raised? Are your physical activities or general wellbeing being affected? If so, then we can help eradicate these symptoms, so you can get back to enjoying life activities.
Leg pain can be a direct result of wear and tear, overuse, or injuries to joints or bones, or muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Some leg pain can be traced to problems in your lower spine.
Orthotic House will assess you to determine the cause of your leg pain, then provide the correct diagnosis supported by a well-structured, easy-to-manage treatment plan that will get you back on track.
From the moment you step into our rooms, we begin to assess you by simply analysing your gait and comfort levels. Consultation will consider your level of pain and movement range, your age, size, any relevant medical conditions, lifestyle, activity requirements, and your desired outcome.
To provide a complete diagnosis, we conduct a physical exam testing the range of motion, pain levels and physical appearance of the skin.
To complete the diagnosis, if required, we may refer you to a specialist.
