Foot and lower limb health

What is a Podiatrist?

Podiatrists are university-trained foot health experts who help prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs. 

What problems do Podiatrists treat?

Sore feet are not a normal side effect from everyday life, yet only a small fraction of people suffering from sore feet seek out professional advice.

If you suffer from sore or tired feet and/or lower limbs, knee problems or lower back pain from walking, running or standing you should seek out a podiatrist like you would a dentist for any tooth pain.

Podiatrists understand the structure and movement of the foot and lower limbs. They are able to diagnose foot conditions, identify systemic overall health conditions that present with foot or lower limb symptoms – and recommend appropriate treatment plans.
