Podiatry provides solutions for all types of foot and ankle pain. Through a thorough understanding of your lower limb, our Podiatrists will get you back on your feet and moving fast!
Podiatry is a branch of medicine that is devoted to the study, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limb and foot. Podiatrists are experts in musculoskeletal conditions in this area of the body and also treat skin pathologies of the feet.
The feet are quite literally the pillars of our bodies and are fundamental in operating at an optimal level. The practise of podiatry recognises the importance of the foot and ankle, and works towards ensuring these structures, that are supporting your body, are functioning as intended.
Podiatry is beneficial for individuals from all walks of life, ranging from those with mobility concerns to high-level athletes. Your podiatrist will consider your footwear, occupation and lifestyle to holistically evaluate the health and congruence of your lower limb and foot. Individually tailored treatment regimens and honest, open communication will ensure success in attaining your fitness and lifestyle goals.
With the use of advanced techniques from assessment to treatment, our podiatrist, in partnership with our collaborative team of health professionals at Ace Sports Clinic, will play a pivotal role in fast tracking you back to pain-free exercise and a better quality of life. Orthotics, taping techniques and strengthening exercises may all be used for best care. Podiatry can also play a part in early detection of chronic diseases such as diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, neuropathies and arthritis.
Our feet are an integral part of good movement and optimal health, keeping us independent and free to do what we want, when we want throughout our life.
At Ace Sports Clinic, our podiatrists have undertaken an intensive 4-year full-time degree including a Bachelor of Applied Science and a Masters of Podiatric Practise. This 4-year degree involves rigorous training and education, providing them with the knowledge and technique required to treat all leg, foot and ankle complaints. Following accreditation, they are involved in continuous professional development to ensure they keep up to date with the latest and most effective methods of assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limb.
