Part of some ageing or disability processes means that simple things such as monitoring and tending to your feet might become more difficult. As your mobility and flexibility change over time, it can also be challenging to travel to a podiatry clinic for regular treatment.
Gen Physio Podiatrists are here to assist you by travelling to visit and care for you and your feet in the comfort of your own home.
What is a home visit Podiatrist?
A podiatrist is a university qualified allied health professional who can diagnose, treat and prevent problems that affect the feet or lower limb. What sets us apart from other podiatry services is that we do all this in your own home.
We treat foot and leg problems to help you maintain overall lower limb health and hygiene of your feet. We are here to make sure you can perform your daily tasks without any foot pain.
What can we do?
We are here to provide:
- Diabetic assessment – we carefully and thoroughly monitor the vascular, neurological and dermatological status or your feet and provide diabetic foot care and education.
- Biomechanical assessment – we can diagnose and treat basic issues related to the muscles and joints. We can assess the origin of any foot pain you may be experiencing, plus determine how to best minimise or prevent these symptoms.
- General foot care – we can treat many varieties of skin and nail complaints, including onychomycosis (fungal toenails) management, corns, warts, ingrown toenails (without local anaesthesia).
- Footwear assessment – we will routinely check if your current footwear is appropriate for your feet. We can also provide education regarding suitable footwear features and how to choose the best for your specific foot type.
