  • Podiatric Acupuncture / Dry needling - Acupuncture is the action of penetrating the skin using a needle to arrive at therapeutic benefit. Acupuncture has been shown to have localised effect on tissues such as stimulation of sensory nerves to reduce pain. Dry needling is used to release tight areas of muscle fibre and fascia, which may have become compromised due to injury

 

  • Injection therapy - Corticosteroids (steroids) are a group of drugs  that can be used to reduce inflammation and pain. Marc is trained in the use of injectable steroids along with local anaesthesia to reduce inflammation and pain within the foot.
