Musculoskeletal Assessment

MSK and sports

A painful foot, ankle or leg can be very debilitating, and can become a chronic issue.

MSK (Musculoskeletal) is the diagnosis and treatment of problems arising from the musculoskeletal system. This includes injuries and diseases affecting the muscles, bones and joints of the limbs and spine. At Zest Podiatry & Physio we are trained in assessing the joints in the lower limb through our knowledge of biomechanics. We can offer a full musculoskeletal treatment plan using our knowledge alongside in-house diagnostic techniques and equipment.
