Common Podiatry Conditions

The foot is a complex structure, and pain may occur in many different areas, including the toes, sole, forefoot, rearfoot and ankle. 

A variety of reasons may lead to knee pain, affecting individuals of all ages. 

The feet can be impacted by skin and nail disorders such as ingrown toenails, plantar warts, corns and calluses, among others. 

Being small doesn’t spare children from experiencing discomfort in their legs and feet! It’s vital to detect the sources of pain at the earliest stage to support their growth and development. 

Problems affecting the feet and legs can lead to broader impacts, even extending to the hips and lower back. 

Persons living with diabetes and particular other medical conditions might be more susceptible to developing foot problems than their counterparts.

What To Expect From Podiatry

Podiatry Assessment Cheltenham

1. Assessment

Your Cheltenham podiatrist will examine the region you’re troubled by, whether on your foot’s sole, around a toenail, or involving your ankles, knees, or hips. This may mean them visually inspecting and touching the area, and watching how you walk to establish the potential origin of your trouble. 

Podiatry Diagnosis Cheltenham

2. Diagnosis

Using these observations, your podiatrist should deduce and deliver a diagnosis of your condition. If required, X-Rays, ultrasound and MRI scans might be prescribed to aid in confirming your diagnosis. 

Podiatry Treatment Cheltenham

3. Treatment

Once they’ve diagnosed your condition, your podiatrist will ascertain and recommend the best suited treatment course for you. 

What is 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.

If you’re dealing with foot conditions like plantar fasciitis (heel pain), arthritis, flat feet, or sprains, or any other lower limb issues, a visit to a podiatrist could be beneficial. Other healthcare practitioners might also refer you to a podiatrist if they believe your issue originates from your feet or legs. A seasoned podiatrist is thoroughly knowledgeable about feet, ankles, and legs and aims to restore your mobility to the fullest extent in the quickest time possible.

All Your Podiatry Questions Answered

A podiatrist assesses your feet and lower legs to determine if there are any issues and, if so, how they may be able to help. At Foot and Leg Pain Centre, our focus is on restoring your physical freedom. 

Common conditions addressed by podiatrists include flat or excessively arched feet, plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, skin and nail disorders, and patients with ailments like 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 decide to visit a podiatrist if they face pain or discomfort in their feet or ankles or suffer with conditions like plantar warts, bunions, or troublesome corns or calluses. Plus, people diagnosed with diabetes should see a podiatrist routinely due to their escalated risk of foot issues. 

No, you can directly visit a podiatrist without needing a referral.

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

Certainly, our treatments are grounded in evidence, experience, and the individual patient’s needs and goals. Some of the studies referenced in this page include:
