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 work with patients of all ages, from kids to the elderly, providing care for a diverse range of medical conditions including diabetes, sports injuries and arthritis. Their work is crucial in assisting individuals in maintaining their mobility, independence, and overall well-being. With personalised care and treatment, podiatrists can help prevent further complications and enhance the health and quality of life of their patients.
What Can I Expect at my First Podiatry Appointment?
Our podiatrists conduct a thorough evaluation of your foot and ankle, as well as a gait analysis and review of your medical history, during your initial consultation. By evaluating your symptoms, ankle, and foot, our podiatrists can create a customised treatment plan for you that includes advanced techniques like gait analysis, orthotics, dry needling, shockwave therapy, and rehabilitation exercise programs.
