What is Podiatry?

Though small in proportion to the rest of our body, when it comes to importance, our feet really do punch above their weight, housing a quarter of the bones in our body and containing a tightly packed network of muscles, ligaments and joints.

The trouble is, they’re often the most neglected and forgotten parts of our bodies, which increase their vulnerability to injury and disease. That’s why it’s vital to take care of them - they can’t be replaced like a pair of shoes!

Podiatrists are highly skilled professionals who deal with the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of medical conditions of the feet and lower limbs. Problems can affect anyone and can cause pain, not just in your feet or legs, but in your lower back and other joints by changing how you walk or run. Our Podiatrists work closely with our Osteopaths to give you the best possible approach to improve your overall health, mobility and wellbeing.
