why see a podiatrist?
Podiatrists are university trained health professionals who deal exclusively with the feet and the lower limbs. This includes areas such as pediatrics (children),ingrown toenails, diabetes, sports injuries, structural problems, elderly and general foot care.
It’s easy to underestimate the role of our feet, but when we think about how long we spend on our feet all day, it’s not hard to see why it’s so important to look after this part of our body.
It is estimated that our feet will carry us about 128,000 kilometres over a lifetime… now that’s impressive!
It’s also important to remember that pain in other parts of the body can be related to the feet. For example, knee, hip and back pain is sometimes relieved by treating the mechanics of your feet.
As well as a comprehensive range of treatments we also offer orthotics and footwear from only our most trusted brands.
