Our goal is to offer instant relief followed by long term symptom resolution.

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. 

Complications with the feet and legs can cause effects that extend beyond, impacting areas like 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 Seven Hills

1. Assessment

Your Seven Hills 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 Seven Hills

2. Diagnosis

With this information, your podiatrist should come to a conclusion and offer a diagnosis of your condition. If necessary, X-Rays, ultrasound and MRI may be ordered to clarify your diagnosis. 

Podiatry Treatment Seven Hills

3. Treatment

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

What is 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.

Your General Podiatry Questions Answered

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. 

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 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 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 do not need a referral to see a podiatrist.

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. 

Absolutely, we rely on evidence, experience, and the specific needs and goals of each patient to guide our treatments. Some of the studies referenced in this page include:
