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 cater to patients of all ages, from children to the elderly, who suffer from various medical conditions such as diabetes, sports injuries, and arthritis. They play an important role in promoting their patients’ mobility, independence, and overall well-being. Through providing customised care, advice, and treatment, podiatrists can prevent the development of further complications and improve their patients’ overall health and quality of life.
What Can I Expect at my First Podiatry Appointment?
When you first see a podiatrist, they will conduct a comprehensive examination of your foot and ankle, including a gait analysis and a review of your medical history. Based on your symptoms and evaluation, our podiatrists will develop a customised treatment plan that incorporates advanced techniques like orthotics, dry needling, shockwave therapy, and rehabilitation exercise programs to meet your unique needs.
