What is Podiatry?
Podiatry specialises in the diagnosis and management of foot disorders and injuries associated with foot and lower limb function.
Podiatrists also deal with rehabilitation of medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limb. Podiatrists treat all aspects of foot pain, joint disorters, soft tissue pathologies, as well as neurological and circulatory problems.
Podiatry is the treatment of foot, ankle, leg and knee injuries by altering lower limb function using a variety of methods, including insoles, footwear and exercises. A podiatrist will analyse the way an individuals foot strikes the ground and evaluate the chain of motion of the major joints in the leg from the ground up. By analysing the way that you walk and run the podiatrist will evaluate whether or not there are any mechanical reasons that may be contributing to your injury.
