Podiatry Treatment

Podiatrists assess, diagnose and treat a number of conditions that affect the foot and lower limb. A routine podiatry treatment includes an assessment, diagnosis, treatment and a management plan. During the assessment the podiatrist will examine the feet and legs for any skin changes, circulation changes, signs of infection, unusual moles, nails abnormalities and any indicators of systemic disease. This enables us to diagnose more complex issues and recommend specialised treatment paths. See more under Conditions…

Professional Care and Advice

Treatment of superficial foot conditions can often require regular care, and routine care can also become increasingly difficult as we get older or suffer reduced mobility. Although it is important to address your current problem the emphasis is on resolving issues on a long-term basis and giving you advice on how to avoid problems recurring. This is especially important if a patient has diabetes or circulation problems.

Medical Referral

Podiatry treatments do not stop at what we offer in clinic and we will refer our patient’s for more specialist treatments when required, for example, to a paediatric podiatrist, a physiotherapist or to a GP for specialist investigations.
