Foot Pain – Physio Tullamore


Foot pain is something we specialise in. Our clinic has a close working relationship with PPL Podiatry Ltd a Cork based biomechanics company, TOG orthotics and optimum orthotics.

We have developed specific rehabilitation for the following conditions:
1. Plantarfasiciitis
2. Mortons Neuroma
3. Pronation (Fallen Arches)
4. Heel Spurs
5. Various foot tendinopathies
6. Arthritic toes etc


There are various types of injuries that can occur with tendons such as an acute tendon pain or a degenerative tendon injury (tendonosis) where there is a internal cell changes of the tendon. With plantarfascitis patients may experience stiffness after rest, being worse in the morning and making the stairs difficult to descend. Once the tendon is warmed up it becomes less uncomfortable and the athlete is able to continue running. The problem here is that they will not address the problem because it doesn’t stop them from running, so the tendon gradually gets worse.

It is important to get an expert diagnosis of the tendon. Physio Tullamore will take note of the history and look for some tell-tale signs such as a localised area of tendon stiffness and a fusiform swelling.

At Physio Tullamore we offer the latest evidence based treatments for tendon pain – For degenerative tendon pain such as plantarfascitis – we use Shockwave Therapy which re initiates the healing process to promote healthy cell growth, this is particularly a very effective treatment for the long standing tendon pain.

Some of the conditions above can be exacerbated by poor biomechanics (joint alignment) or due to training as a result of spikes in training volume. We offer offer the number one ranked treatment for tendon pain – Shockwave Therapy Please contact Physio Tullamore for more details 0579329111!
