What is podiatry all about?
How Do I Know If I Have Problem Feet?
Podiatry is the health profession dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs. Foot pain is often the first sign of foot problems but NOT the only sign.
Your podiatrist at Posture Podiatry is experienced at examining your gait, feet, legs and posture thoroughly. Sometimes shin pain, aching legs, knee pain and back pain can occur as a result of problem feet. Our podiatrists can provide personalised solutions to your foot problems and any related aches and pains.
Your feet are the foundation for your posture…
When it comes to problem feet, we start by looking at the whole person – NOT just the sore part!
Have you ever had one of those injuries that just never gets better? It may be ankle pain, sore knees, hip problems or recurring back pain. You may have injured yourself years ago, and the area has just never healed properly.
• Foot Pain • Plantar Fasciitis • Heel Pain • Flat Feet • Corns and Calluses • Sports Injuries • Severs disease in children • Ingrown Toe Nails • Ankle Pain • Shin Pain or Shin Splints • Knee Pain • Hip Pain • Back Pain •
It’s simple. Your body has it’s own inbuilt protection mechanisms. Corns and calluses protect soft tissue. Muscles protect joints, and the more the muscles are protecting, the less they are able to function properly.
Joints become restricted in many ways – through injury, overuse, or underuse. By freeing up the acquired restrictions in the joints and resulting trigger points in the muscle, the podiatrists at Posture Podiatry can provide a functional solution to your pain… fast.
Before introducing orthotics, foot braces or any other special aids, the podiatrists at Posture Podiatry can investigate your body’s ability to fix itself first.By freeing up the acquired restrictions in the joints and resulting trigger points in the muscle, the podiatrists at Posture Podiatry can provide a functional solution to your pain... fast.
