Physio Logic is really excited to announce that ProPodiatry will now be providing the podiatry and chiropody service from the practice. Jo Mugan brings over 20 years experience of working as a podiatrist within the NHS and private sector having previously worked as the Lead Paediatric Podiatrist for Leeds North West PCT and Harrogate and District Foundation Trust providing support for Podiatrists across North Yorkshire.
For the last 18 years Jo has specialised in the field of Biomechanics and Musculoskeletal Podiatry and for the last 12 years has further specialised in the assessment and treatment of children (Podopaediatrics) whilst continuing to treat adult patients.
Jo continues to be one of a small number of highly specialised podiatrists in the UK experienced in the treatment of orthopaedic, developmental and inflammatory conditions specific to children.
Having spoken at many society branch meetings and also represented her employers at national conferences on the subject of podopaediatrics; she remains committed to her ongoing professional development, providing evidence based treatments where possible and getting the best result for her patients regardless of their age or mobility because comfortable feet really do matter.
ProPodiatry provides bespoke Podiatry treatments for the whole family ranging from the removal of a painful corn/callus, the assessment of a child with an unusual walking pattern to the athlete suffering with recurring foot/lower limb pain during activity. The feet have a large influence on the rest of the body as they are the foundation on which we stand and walk. Many musculoskeletal aches and pains therefore can be caused or made worse by feet that aren’t functioning correctly. Podiatry intervention depends on numerous factors i.e. the developmental stage of the foot, activity level, footwear etc. Successful Podiatry treatments may include, advice and reassurance, callus reduction, footwear advice/modification, exercise programmes, taping, mobilisation/manipulation, functional/accommodative foot orthoses (insoles) and silicone splinting. ProPodiatry aims to reduce or resolve symptoms whenever possible, reduce the risk of future injury/deformity and promote mobility in all ages.
