  2. Assess your foot function and alignment during walking and running as we like to find the underlying cause of your pain.
  3. Treat your foot pain and other pains appropriately with the best evidence based research available.
  4. Review you, to ensure your expectations have been met and to prescribe appropriate exercises to make you foot and leg strong again.
