Podiatry is the branch of medicine devoted to the study of, diagnosis, and medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower extremity.
Our podiatrist has a wealth of experience in managing a variety of complaints which can be broken down into three groups. Biomechanical, sports medicine and systemic disease.
Various conditions that can be treated at our clinic include- flat feet, bunions, knock knees, painful heels, hip pain, arthritis related foot pain, corns, callouses, ingrown toenails and any other foot-related pain.
Initially, a thorough analysis of your presenting issues, their surrounding circumstances and history is established to decide the most effective and efficient treatment options.
Then analysis of your skeletal, muscular, fascial, neurological, connective tissue and joint structure/function during a biomechanical assessment will also help determine causative factors and treatment options.
At this point, the various treatment options will be discussed taking your lifestyle into account. This can vary from orthotic therapy, strapping, foot mobilisation techniques, dry needling or palliative care for more common foot lesions such as corns and callouses.
At St George health we work in a team environment to ensure you get the best possible management and the quickest and best outcomes. By combining our knowledge and skills from our wide variety of health professionals you are able to reach full recovery faster.
