What is Podiatry?
Foot health is vital, and that’s where podiatry comes in. Podiatrists, or foot doctors, are highly skilled healthcare professionals in the field of allied health who work towards the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions that affect the feet, ankles, and lower limbs, using a range of methods from medical to surgical and rehabilitative techniques.
Podiatrists cater to patients of all ages, from children to the elderly, who suffer from various medical conditions such as diabetes, sports injuries, and arthritis. They play an important role in promoting their patients’ mobility, independence, and overall well-being. Through providing customised care, advice, and treatment, podiatrists can prevent the development of further complications and improve their patients’ overall health and quality of life.
What Can I Expect at my First Podiatry Appointment?
During your first visit with a podiatrist, a comprehensive evaluation of your foot and ankle, as well as a gait analysis and review of medical history, will be conducted. Based on these assessments and your symptoms, our podiatrists will develop a personalised treatment plan for you that includes cutting-edge techniques such as gait analysis, orthotics, dry needling, shockwave therapy, and rehabilitation exercise programs to meet your specific needs.
