At Rivers Hospital we’ve launched a new dedicated clinic for the diagnosis and treatment of heel pain and other foot conditions. Our multi-disciplinary heel clinic provides access to a team of experts led by Mr Alex Watson, a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in foot and ankle surgery. Mr Watson offers surgical interventions for a wide range of foot, ankle and heel problems, supported by onsite chartered Physiotherapists and Consultant Radiologists.
Following diagnosis the clinic can also offer patients Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (eSWT). eSWT is a non-invasive treatment which works by applying energetic (not electrical) shockwaves to the painful area.
While this service is ideal for individuals suffering or recently diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, the clinic also offers treatment to those experiencing any type of foot issue, or where other pain relieving methods have been unsuccessful.
Diagnostic investigations, including MRI, reviewed by a specialist musculo-skeletal radiologist.
Pain management plans tailored to you.
Extensive treatment courses.
Individual exercise prescription.
Onward referral pathway to surgery if required.
Rapid recovery and agility restoration.
