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 pain may develop for a number of reasons and in people of any age. 

Skin and nail problems affecting the feet may encompass ingrown toenails, plantar warts, corns and calluses, and more. 

Just because they have tiny legs and feet doesn’t mean children are immune to pain! Recognising the reasons for pain as soon as possible is essential for their progress and growth. 

Conditions involving the feet and legs can produce extensive consequences, possibly affecting 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.

What To Expect From Podiatry

Podiatry Assessment Castle Hill

1. Assessment

The Castle Hill podiatrist should inspect the area of concern, whether it’s on the sole of your foot, around a toenail, or your ankles, knees, or hips. This could involve them visually assessing and feeling the area and observing your stride to pinpoint the probable cause of your issue. 

Podiatry Diagnosis Castle Hill

2. Diagnosis

With the gathered data, your podiatrist should formulate a diagnosis of your condition. If it’s deemed necessary, X-Rays, ultrasound and MRI scans may be requested to support your diagnosis. 

Podiatry Treatment Castle Hill

3. Treatment

Once your condition has been diagnosed, your podiatrist will devise and propose the most suitable treatment approach for you 

Everything You Need to Know About Podiatry

Primarily dealing with feet, podiatry is a medicinal discipline dedicated to the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of the feet and lower limbs. Despite this association, podiatry also encompasses lower leg care, and its positive impact can extend from your toes to your head.

You may decide to see a podiatrist near Castle Hill if you experience issues with your feet, such as plantar fasciitis (heel pain), arthritis, flat feet, sprains, or anything else that affects your feet or lower legs. You may also be referred to a podiatrist if another medical professional suspects an issue stems from your feet or your legs without you even realising it! An experienced podiatrist is well-versed in all things feet, ankles, and legs and aims to do all they can to get you moving as freely as possible, as quickly as possible.

All Your Podiatry Questions Answered

A podiatrist inspects your feet and lower legs to ascertain any present concerns and, if they exist, the ways in which they can assist. At Foot and Leg Pain Centre, our objective is to rehabilitate your physical activity. 

Podiatrists commonly treat conditions such as flat or highly arched feet, plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, skin and nail conditions, and people with conditions such as arthritis and diabetes. 

General foot maintenance includes thorough washing and drying of your feet, maintaining tidy toenails, and seeking a podiatrist’s help if you observe any possible concerns. 

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. 

No, you do not need a referral to see a podiatrist.

Certainly, you will. Making you hip hop happy before you walk out the door, leaving your pain behind, is deeply rooted in our values.
