Common Podiatry Conditions

Due to the foot’s intricate design, pain and discomfort can occur in various areas including the toes, sole, forefoot, rearfoot, and ankle. 

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

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

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. 

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 Cherrybrook

1. Assessment

Your Cherrybrook podiatrist should assess the area you’re concerned about, whether it be on the sole of your foot, around a toenail, or in your ankles, knees, or hips. This may involve them looking at and touching the area and watching you walk to determine the possible cause of your problem. 

Podiatry Diagnosis Cherrybrook

2. Diagnosis

Armed with this knowledge, your podiatrist should arrive at a conclusion and provide a diagnosis for your condition. If needed, X-Rays, ultrasound and MRI scans could be requested to confirm your diagnosis. 

Podiatry Treatment Cherrybrook

3. Treatment

Upon the diagnosis of your condition, your podiatrist will identify and suggest the most optimal treatment strategy for you. 

Everything You Need to Know About Podiatry

The field of podiatry focuses on evaluating, diagnosing and treating disorders of the feet and lower limbs. While it’s often linked mainly with foot health, podiatry also encompasses care for the lower legs, potentially providing relief from your toes to your head.

Seeing a podiatrist near Cherrybrook 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.
