We are Foot Health Professionals trained in the diagnosis, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of abnormal conditions that affect the feet and lower limbs. We help to prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat foot infections.
Within the field of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery our scope of practice involves the treatment and management of patients that fall into the following categories:
- General Foot Healthcare
- Vascular conditions
- Wound management
- Sports Medicine
- Foot Surgery
Podiatrists also carry out specialised work such as ingrowing toenail surgery and musculoskeletal assessments in the field of Biomechanics – looking at the relationship between the bones, muscles and soft tissue in the foot and lower limb, and its effects on other parts of the body such as the knee and lower back.
