What is Podiatry?
Podiatry is an essential field of allied health that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions related to the feet, ankles, and lower limbs. Podiatrists, commonly known as foot doctors, are highly trained healthcare professionals who use a combination of techniques, including medical, surgical, and rehabilitative, to address foot and ankle problems.
Podiatrists work with patients of all ages, from children to the elderly, and provide care for individuals with a wide range of medical conditions, such as diabetes, sports injuries, and arthritis. They play an important role in helping people maintain their mobility, independence, and overall quality of life. By providing tailored care, advice, and treatment, podiatrists can help prevent further complications and improve the overall health and well-being of their patients.
What Can I Expect at my First Podiatry Appointment?
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.
