Your feet are one of your most important assets! Podiatry deals with prevention, diagnosis and management of foot and related lower limb disorders to improve your mobility and enhance your independence both in the short and long term.
Podiatrists treat issues from bone and joint disorders such as arthritis, and soft-tissue and muscular pathologies, as well as neurological and circulatory diseases.
Podiatrists are also able to diagnose and treat any complications which affect your lower limbs, including skin and nail disorders, corns, calluses and ingrown toenails.
A podiatrist can diagnose and treat your foot injuries and infections gained through sport or other activities. They can also assist with footwear assessment and education.
A podiatrist will consult with you on your health and form a care plan to deal with any issues you may have.
Let a podiatrist assess your foot care needs. If you are seeking a referral for yourself, please contact My Aged Care, your care provider or general practitioner and request to use Connect2Health’s network of practitioners for a fast and reliable service.
