What is Podiatry?
Podiatry is an important area of allied health that is focused on diagnosing, treating, and preventing conditions of the feet, ankles, and lower limbs. Foot doctors, also known as podiatrists, are highly qualified healthcare professionals who use a variety of methods, including medical, surgical, and rehabilitative techniques, to address foot and ankle problems.
Podiatrists are responsible for treating patients of all ages, from children to the elderly, who have a range of medical conditions, including diabetes, sports injuries, and arthritis. Their work is vital in helping people maintain their independence, mobility, and overall quality of life. By providing tailored care, advice, and treatment, podiatrists can prevent further complications and promote the overall health and well-being of their patients.

Initial consultation with a podiatrist will include a thorough assessment of your foot and ankle, as well as a gait assessment and medical history analysis. By assessing your ankle and foot, and your symptoms, our podiatrists will be able to propose a proven treatment plan. We use advanced techniques as part of our treatment plans including gait analysis, orthotics, shockwave therapy, dry needling and rehabilitation exercise programs so your treatment is tailored to your individual needs.
