What is a Podiatrist?

Podiatrists assess, diagnose, treat and manage conditions of the feet and lower legs. Foot care with a podiatrist is especially important for people with chronic and complex health conditions such as diabetes.


Core Business

Our primary focus is management of high risk foot conditions. This can be achieved through identifying at risk clients through high-risk foot assessment, diabetic foot screening and neurovascular assessments and implementing management plans within a multidisciplinary team.

Areas of service include

  • Management and prevention of the foot and lower limb amputations by identifying patients at high risk, and implementing appropriate management plans
  • Ulcers/wound management of the foot
  • Corns/callouses causing pain and decreasing mobility of at risk clients
  • Nail disorders including Ingrown toenails, and fungal nails
  • Education to optimise awareness of health conditions and how they can affect the lower limb and what can be done to prevent complications.
  • Improve mobility and enhance the independence of individuals through the prevention, education and management of foot problems.
