Podiatry

 

Did you know the average 60 year old will have walked  around the Earth about 4 times. 

Good Footcare is essential  for everyone but people with Diabetes, Arthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis need to be extra careful.  Serious complications such as foot ulcers or amputations are avoidable and you can also avoid pain, distress, reduced fitness for everyday life, time lost at work and loss of earnings by simply putting a care plan in place.

Podiatry services includes

  • Callus & Corn Removal
  • Specialised Footwear and Socks (subsidised prices)
  • Shoe Fitting
  • Communication with your GP where necessary
  • Appropriate Referrals, when required

Orthotics are shoe inserts made from a mold of your feet and are only manufactured after a podiatrist has conducted a complete evaluation of your feet, ankles, and legs, so the orthotic can accommodate your unique foot structure and pathology.
