What is Podiatry?
In the allied health spectrum, Podiatry is the specialty concerned with diagnosing, preventing, and treating foot, ankle, and lower extremity conditions.
Podiatrists, with their specific training, are skilled in identifying and addressing biomechanical problems that could lead to injuries or compromised 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
The human foot, consisting of 26 bones, 33 joints, and a multitude of muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves, is a highly complex and effective structure. However, an injury to these components can rapidly become extremely disabling and impact overall health. As specialists in the foot and lower leg, podiatrists are able to precisely diagnose the cause of discomfort and uncover the underlying issue. This leads to a more comprehensive treatment plan that minimises the risk of future injuries while maintaining mobility and independence.
