You are not wating your time at the physio but you should see a podiatrist to assess your feet and leg length difference ( if there is one)
The physio will get rid of the injury, the podiatrist will hopefully prevent it from returning
To get referred to a podiatrist please call the SA Podiatry assn 0861 100 249
