Specialised healthcare for your lower limbs- anything below the knee.
Podiatrists are highly trained health professionals in lower leg health; the way you walk, the type of sensations that you feel when walking and checking the quality of the blood flowing into your lower legs and feet. In-depth understanding and knowledge of lower leg muscles, bones, blood flow, and nerves, enables them to recognise problems and work out the best way to treat them.
Some of the most common reasons to see a podiatrist include:
- Hard skin, toenails, corns, wart
- Foot pain
- Ingrown toenails and toenail surgery
- Diabetic foot assessments and ongoing care
- Nerve and blood flow assessments
- Advice on the best footwear for your feet
- Wound care and assessment
Our podiatrists work closely with the rest of our allied health team, including dieticians and diabetic nurse educators. If we feel that additional support from the team could help you achieve your personal goals, we can get them involved, with your permission.
