Established in 1993, the practice has grown to offer the following treatments:
Our feet consist of 26 bones supported by ligaments, tendons, muscles, blood vessels, nerves and other soft tissues. Our feet help us balance and carry us the equivalent of 5 times around the world in an average lifetime.
Our feet may also mirror our general health. Signs of diabetes, arthritis, circulatory or neurological diseases may often appear first in the feet. Problems with our backs, hips and knees may affect our gait, and it is often true in reverse. If our feet are not functioning as a solid platform and lever of propulsion this may be reflected in the rest of our body.
On your first visit, full details of your problem will be taken, along with your medical history. It is important that you bring along a list of any medication you are taking.
You will then be given a thorough examination of your foot and lower limb health that will be tailored to the presenting complaint. Available treatments will then be discussed and planned to suit the needs of the individual. Your appointment should take around 30 minutes and will incorporate any necessary treatment, with the emphasis on eliminating or reducing pain.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WHEN YOU ATTEND THE PODIATRIST ALL TRACES OF NAIL POLISH ARE REMOVED
It is also respectfully requested that to avoid interruptions and distractions, mobile phones are turned off and for reasons of safety young children are not brought into the consulting room unless it is they who are attending for treatment.
