Military & Law Enforcement Lower Limb Conditions


military-grade-orthotics

 

Tactical-Use Orthotics Designed by Podiatrists

 

Soldiers come to our clinic for 3 reasons:

 

  • Prevention of foot problems before starting army
  • Treatment of pain acquired during army training
  • Salvage of untreated foot problems that worsened through army life

Army enlistees should have their lower extremities evaluated for injuries and biomechanical abnormalities which can quickly lead to foot, ankle, knee, hip or spine problems once their activities increase with army training.  The repetitive and often sudden increase in weight-bearing activities can be too much for any person, and more so for ground troops in the field.

 

Army personnel are commonly seen in clinic for:

  • Flat foot
  • Foot pain (heel, midfoot, forefoot)
  • Knee, hip and back pain
  • Fungal skin or foot rot
  • Soft tissue infections
  • Ingrown toenail
  • Toe and nail trauma
  • Stress fractures
  • Nerve compression in the ankle/ foot
  • Ankle instability
  • Enhanced endurance/ performance
  • Sprains, strains, and overuse injuries

Podiatrists are specially qualified to screen and prevent lower limb problems, treat existing lower limb pains, or to salvage and restore foot function to those who went without treatment while serving Singapore.

 

Fully customized medical-grade insoles can be designed for treatment and prevention to help with ankle impingement, flat feet, heel pain, calluses, shin splints, knee pain and many other lower limb conditions.  Comprehensive treatment plans will ensure you get the results you want whether it is pain relief, enhanced performance or prevention of future problems.
