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.

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.
