What do Podiatrists do?

Podiatrists are healthcare professionals responsible for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of foot, heel, ankle, and lower limb conditions. As well as problems caused by underlying medical conditions. Recommendations, which can include using customised shoe inserts, specific physical exercises, or medications to treat specific skin conditions can also be given by Podiatrists.

When should you see a Podiatrist?

Typical foot conditions that require Podiatrist services are:

  • Heel pain
  • Ingrown toenail
  • Big toe
  • Bunions
  • Tinea
  • Corns and calluses

Patients with the following medical conditions should also seek foot care from a Podiatrist:

  • Arthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Muscular and soft tissue pathologies
  • Clinical diagnosis of falls
  • Clinical diagnosis of lower limb deformity
  • Medical history of lower limb or foot deformity

You can also regularly book in to see a Podiatrist if you are unable to perform your own foot hygiene or would like to take preventative measures by maintaining foot health and hygiene check-ups.

 

How seeing a Podiatrist can help you

Loss of mobility and independence due to pain can be a result of unaddressed foot issues, which in time can become debilitating. By following the guidance of a Podiatrist, you can learn to perform your own foot health checks, maintain foot hygiene, and gain a better understanding of appropriate footwear for your condition.

Our skilled Podiatrists can detect, assess, treat, and prevent further issues from arising. It is crucial to detect and treat your condition earlier to prevent it from worsening.

We offer a range of Mobile Podiatry services, including:

  • Toenail care, corns, and calluses
  • Ingrown toenail treatment
  • Treatment of heel, ankle, and foot pain
  • Vascular and neurological examinations for patients with diabetes
  • Footwear advice
  • Orthotic devices, advice, and modifications

A Podiatrist doesn’t need a referral from your doctor to visit you. Just book an appointment and our Mobile Podiatrists are equipped with all the latest tools to provide a safe and effective in-home service. Just wear the shoes you would usually wear so they can have a clear picture of your foot health and tailor your treatments accordingly.
