The path towards happy, healthy feet begins here.

Step Into Podiatry

The feet and ankles are highly complex structures that are tasked with carrying us from day to day. With such a significant role in our lives, ensuring you take care of your foot health is an important step in your overall health.

Podiatrists have extensive knowledge of the complexities of the lower limbs and focus on the assessment, management, and prevention of conditions that may affect this area. Whether it’s addressing foot pain, managing chronic conditions, or enhancing overall mobility, podiatry is designed to keep you on your feet wherever possible.

Podiatry Conditions and Care

General Podiatry Care

Our general podiatry care encompasses a wide range of foot and ankle concerns, from routine check-ups to conditions like plantar fasciitis and heel spurs, aiming to ensure your overall foot health.

Skin and Nail Conditions

We see common conditions like ingrown toenails, fungal infections, and bunions daily and are dedicated to enhancing your foot health while also addressing cosmetic concerns.

Footwear Assessment and Advice

We often provide footwear assessments and advice for conditions such as Achilles tendonitis, heel pain, metatarsalgia, and more. This may involve recommending orthotics and insole prescriptions to support the feet and overall musculoskeletal system.

Ankle Rehabilitation

Ankle rehabilitation may be needed post-surgery, sprains, or fractures, and focuses on flexibility, balance, and injury prevention. We’ll create a custom and comprehensive rehabilitation program that may involve taping or bracing for maximum support and stability to minimise the chance of injury recurring.

Biomechanical Assessment

A biomechanical assessment examines joint mobility, foot function, and walking pattern (gait). These may have a significant impact on areas like the back and knees, making this assessment a crucial starting point in many cases.

Diabetic Care

Diabetes poses unique foot risks due to delicate blood vessels and nerves. This includes peripheral neuropathy, peripheral arterial disease, and other concerns.

Podiatry: How It Works

1. Assessment

We conduct a thorough examination of your foot and lower limb health by examining your gait, mobility, and function. This gives us an opportunity to identify and address a large range of conditions and provide the most appropriate care.

2. Diagnosis

This process of identifying foot and lower limb conditions enables us to determine the most likely cause of your condition and develop a treatment plan for your specific needs.

3. Tailored Treatment

We take this information and use it to craft a treatment plan tailored to you. In doing so, we aim to provide you with the most appropriate care for your recovery.
