WHAT IS PODIATRISTS ?

Podiatrists are health care professionals who have been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections. We are a holistic practice who think differently. We offer a complete podiatry service to prevent and treat a range of conditions associated with feet and lower limbs.
