Podiatrists are experts in foot, ankle, and lower limb health. They assist with foot problems, education, and management of foot complications, fall prevention and self-management of foot conditions, prescription of orthotics and insoles. They can help to prevent, diagnose, and treat a wide range of conditions including:
heel and arch pain
They can also treat foot problems that arise from underlying medical conditions such as diabetes and arthritis. Your podiatrist’s recommendations might include specific exercises, the use of custom-made inserts for your shoes, or medications to treat skin conditions. Some podiatrists specialise in different areas of practice, including sports, children, and workplace health.
