Who do we help?

Achilles tendonitis, achilles tendinopathy, arthritis in the ankle, and history of ankle sprains are some of the most common reasons for ankle pain, but there are many other conditions that can affect the ankle.

From acute ankle injuries sustained while playing sport and running or accidents such as torn ankle ligaments or sore achilles tendons, to complex chronic conditions, we have vast experience across a wide range of ankle conditions.

Lots of patients report their ankles feel weak and that they get general pain around the ankle, but can’t necessarily pin-point when the pain started. For others a particular accident or trauma may have caused it. We therefore work with each patient, on an individual basis, to put together a bespoke treatment plan for their unique situation.

On a daily basis we hear people describe their ankle pain using terms such as ‘debilitating’, ‘excruciating torture’, ‘restrictive’, ‘affects me every day’ and ‘I’ve never known pain like it’. We understand how it can become all consuming.

We understand the frustration of ankle pain and how it stops you from doing whatever it is you love, whether that be walking the dog, running or just wandering down to the shops. As private ankle specialists, from day one we will work with you, to get you back to full health.

For most people with ankle conditions or ankle injuries they will finish their treatment with us completely pain free, something that many when they first come to us thought they would never be. As ankle specialists, we know exactly what to look for and what treatment plans to put in place for each presentation of the condition.

We will develop an appropriate treatment plan and bespoke rehabilitation tailored for you, to help get you out of pain and back to enjoying life.

Techniques may include: laser treatment, rehabilitation, ankle mobilisations, ankle manipulations, shockwave therapy, exercise programmes to name but a few.

Not all ankle injuries and conditions are the same, and therefore they should not be treated as such.

We closely monitor your progress to ensure the best outcome, with clinical case meetings taking place within the clinic to ensure best care is provided for every individual patient.

We will also strengthen and condition structures within the foot and ankle to reduce the chances of recurring pain and injuries that could stop you in the future. We are about long term solutions, not quick fixes that merely prop you up or mask the real issue.

Leading technology….

 As a centre of excellence, our experienced clinicians have the leading technologies at their disposal to treat your condition. Each works in a different way, targeting different issues.

Super Inductive System

This works by playing an anti-inflammatory role, by reducing the chronic stage inflammation. It causes the secretion of analgesic opioids by stimulating nerve endings and it also reduces pain messages sent to the brain.

Focused Shockwave System

This uses pro inflammatories, which stimulate the cell activity required for acute inflammation which is the natural healing process within the body.

Laser System

Laser is used for issues such as tendinopathy, by reducing inflammation and thereby reducing pain.
