There is a range of conditions affecting the feet and legs that can affect the way our nerves work. As our nerves play a very important role in relaying sensory information between our body and our brain which enables us to feel, damage to the nerves can put our feet at risk of significant complications.
One of these complications is no longer being able to feel what is happening around our feet, so we don’t know if we’ve sustained an injury. Another complication is changes to our muscle tone, given that our nerves innervate our muscles and support their function.
Our experienced podiatrists take nerve-related foot and leg problems very seriously, taking extreme care to promptly assess and diagnose your condition, and then implement a tailored treatment plan to optimise your well-being, mobility and quality of life.
Here are the common conditions that our podiatrists help manage where nerves are often involved and damaged.
