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

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. 

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

People with diabetes and certain other medical conditions may be more at risk of developing problems with their feet than others.

What To Expect From Podiatry

Podiatry Assessment Galston

1. Assessment

The Galston 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 Galston

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 Galston

3. Treatment

After diagnosing your condition, your podiatrist will determine and recommend the best possible treatment plan 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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions About Podiatry

A podiatrist evaluates your feet and lower legs to find out if there are any complications and, if found, how they might offer help. At Foot and Leg Pain Centre, our mission is to restore your physical independence. 

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 care involves washing and drying your feet well, keeping your toenails neat, and going to a podiatrist if you notice any potential issues. 

Many people choose to seek a podiatrist’s advice when they suffer pain or discomfort in their feet or ankles or experience conditions such as plantar warts, bunions, or corns or calluses. Also, people living with diabetes are advised to regularly attend a podiatrist due to their elevated risk of foot problems. 

No, seeing a podiatrist does not require a referral.

Yes you will. It is anchored in our values to get you hip hop happy before walking out the door so that you may leave your pain behind.
