Podiatrists are health care professionals responsible for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of feet, ankle and lower extremity structures. People with multiple health conditions and comorbidities are at higher risk of suffering issues with their feet. Our skilled Podiatrists can detect, assess, treat and prevent further issues arising. It’s important your condition is detected and treated earlier to prevent it from worsening.
It is common for people over the age of 60 to be suffering from one or multiple chronic health issues. These health issues could have an impact on foot health which could lead to an increased risk of foot ulcers, foot pain, poor mobility, increased falls risk and much more.
Major foot issues can be extremely debilitating which can result in loss of mobility and independence due to pain. With the guidance of a Podiatrist, you will learn to perform your own foot health checks, foot hygiene and have a better understanding of appropriate footwear for your condition.
When do I need to see a Podiatrist?
The number of podiatry sessions you need depends on the type of condition you have and the severity. The frequency of the sessions can vary from every 6 weeks to every 12 weeks. The podiatrist will work with you to tailor the management plan with your condition, ensuring the best outcomes.
Unfortunately, Gen Physio podiatrists do not trim fingernails, as this is not within the scope of practice of podiatrists.
Regular podiatry care is recommended between 6-8 weeks each consultation. This allows your feet and the conditions you may be suffering from to be regularly monitored and kept in check.
