The best Podiatry care

Podiatry is the medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and management of diseases, defects and injuries of the foot, ankle and lower limb.

 

This includes ankle and foot injuries, problems with gait or walking, complications related to medical conditions such as diabetes and arthritis and diseases of the skin or nail such as cracked heels, ingrown toenails, neuromas, warts and other fungal conditions.

 

For any problems involving the feet or lower extremities, it is best to first approach a podiatrist to seek help. Podiatrists will also advise you what shoes you should be wearing to prevent foot and ankle related problems.

Podiatrists are able to assess and assist in the structural alignment and improve the mechanical correction of foot and lower limb. This is done through the use of orthotics and insoles as well as the assessment of walking and running patterns. Orthotics can also accommodate arthritic patients for cushioning  and shock absorption.
