What is Podiatry?
Podiatry is a crucial field of allied health that centres around the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of conditions affecting the feet, ankles, and lower limbs. Podiatrists, also known as foot doctors, are skilled healthcare practitioners who use a range of approaches – from medical to surgical and rehabilitative – to manage foot and ankle issues.
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.
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.
