Podiatry - Why is it important?
Maintaining quality of life starts at your foundation - your feet.
Whether you are unable to self-care, or whether you're an athlete, podiatry covers all your needs.
Regular podiatry appointments are of paramount importance.
As a health practitioner, I am trained to assess the complications of diabetes such as loss of protective sensation (neuropathy) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD). A full treatment plan is implemented to ensure your risk factors for further possible complications are minimised.
Medications: As a new patient, a full medical history is taken including all your current medications, both prescription and over-the-counter. Why? Believe it or not, podiatrists are also trained in pharmacology. We are the 'screeners'. We are trained to know when it may be necessary to send you back to your GP for a medications review.
So we have got you covered.
Your feet are in good hands.
