Common Podiatry Conditions

Given its complex structure, various regions of the foot including the toes, sole, forefoot, rearfoot, and ankle can be susceptible to pain. 

Knee discomfort can arise due to numerous factors and can impact people at any age. 

Conditions like ingrown toenails, plantar warts, corns and calluses, and more are among the skin and nail issues that can affect the feet. 

Despite their small stature and little feet, children aren’t immune to pain! Determining the origins of pain as promptly as possible is crucial for their ongoing growth and development. 

Issues with the feet and legs can have far-reaching effects, such as to the hips and lower back. 

Those suffering from diabetes and specific other health issues might face a greater risk of foot complications compared to others.

Everything You Need to Know About Podiatry

Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of the feet and lower limbs. While it’s primarily associated with the feet, podiatry also extends to the lower legs, and the benefits of podiatry may be felt all the way from your toes to your head.

Seeing a podiatrist near Carlingford may be necessary if you are encountering problems with your feet such as plantar fasciitis (heel pain), arthritis, flat feet, sprains, or any other issues impacting your feet or lower legs. If a healthcare professional believes your feet or legs might be the root of a problem, they may refer you to a podiatrist. An experienced podiatrist, well-informed about all aspects of feet, ankles, and legs, strives to ensure you regain your mobility as swiftly and freely as possible.

Answers to Your Podiatry Questions

A podiatrist examines your feet and lower limbs to identify any potential problems and, if identified, how they could be addressed. At Foot and Leg Pain Centre, our aim is to reinstate your physical mobility. 

Typical cases managed by podiatrists involve flat or overly arched feet, plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, skin and nail anomalies, and patients living with conditions such as arthritis and diabetes. 

Regular foot hygiene involves good cleansing and drying of your feet, managing clean toenails, and resorting to a podiatrist if any potential issues are detected. 

Many people choose to see a podiatrist if they experience pain or discomfort in their feet or ankles or notice something such as a plantar wart, bunion, or a bothersome corn or callus. Additionally, people with diabetes should regularly see a podiatrist due to their increased risk of developing foot problems.
