What is a Podiatrist?
Podiatrists at Spinal and Sports Care are highly skilled in issues involving feet, ankles and lower limbs. Sometimes these issues are a result of other underlying conditions, such as Diabetes, Arthritis, obesity, high cholesterol, poor blood circulation and heart disease.
What issues do Podiatrists treat?
Our Podiatrists can help to prevent, treat, manage and diagnose problems such as:
- Fungal or ingrown toenails
- Soft tissue injuries
- Heel Spurs
- Flat Feet
- Corns and Calluses
- Hammer Toes
- Foot Infections
- Skin conditions such as dry skin
- Problems with balancing
One of our highly trained Podiatrists will ask you about your medical history, any surgeries that you may have had, and any medications that you may be on. They will then examine how you stand and walk and check how well your shoes fit.
Depending on your symptoms, you may be treated through tailored treatments such as exercises, massage or custom shoe inserts to offer you better support.
