Podiatry is for everyone

Podotherapy for athletes and active people
Podiatry can be a solution for athletes. Athletes may suffer from foot problems due to the many hours they spend walking, running, jumping and other physical activities. Common foot problems in active people include for example:
Podiatry can help athletes and active people prevent and treat foot problems, by improving mobility, adjusting footwear as needed and/or providing exercises.

Podiatry can help optimize pressure and support under the feet so that there is less pain. This allows you to move more comfortably and safely, reducing the risk of falls. It is important to seek help with foot problems early, so that any conditions and pain are treated in time and quality of life is improved.
We always start with an extensive intake to identify the problem. Based on this we perform an examination. This can usually consist of an inspection, examination of the walking pattern, a pressure measurement and testing the function of the feet. We also examine the footwear on which you walk a lot or in which you experience a lot of complaints. If therapy is indicated, we will discuss it together and, if approved, the therapy will be started. In the case of podiatric insoles, the insoles are delivered on short notice and a check-up appointment is always made when you are new with us. The therapy is always tailored to the individual situation.
