What is Podiatry?
Podiatry is a branch of allied health devoted to the diagnosis, prevention and medical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower extremity.
Podiatrists are specifically trained to identify and treat biomechanical issues that will inevitably lead to injury or decreased performance such as;
- Heel Pain
- Foot Pain
- Heel Spur
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shin Splints
- Knee Pain
- Running Injuries
- Flat Feet
- Callus & Corns
- Ingrown Toenails
- Plantar Warts
With 26 bones, 33 joints, and an array of muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves, the human foot is a highly intricate and well-engineered structure. Although it typically operates efficiently, any injury to these parts can swiftly turn debilitating, impacting overall health. As specialists in foot and lower leg conditions, podiatrists accurately pinpoint the source of pain and identify the root cause, delivering a holistic approach that minimises injury recurrence while preserving mobility and autonomy.
