What makes our podiatric approach unique and modern in our clinic?

Use of technology:

Podiatrists use a range of technologies to assess foot and ankle problems including digital radiography, ultrasound, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). They may also recommend custom orthotics and shoes to improve posture and relieve pain.

Multidisciplinary approach:

Podiatrists work in collaboration with other health professionals such as family doctors, pain specialists, physiotherapists, and chiropractors, to develop a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan for each patient.

Whole-body consideration:

Podiatrists don’t just focus on feet and ankles but consider the whole body. They can consider anatomical, biomechanical, neurological, dermatological, vascular, and endocrine aspects to treat patients.

Preventive treatment:

Podiatrists emphasize preventing problems before they occur. They can educate patients on preventive foot care, such as maintaining good hygiene, wearing suitable shoes, and regular exercise to strengthen muscles and joints.

Why is foot health paramount?

Foot health is paramount as feet are the foundations of the body. They bear the weight of the entire body, facilitate walking and mobility, and provide balance and stability. Foot problems can lead to pain and difficulties in moving, which can impact quality of life and independence.

Furthermore, untreated foot problems can lead to more severe complications, such as infections, deformations, and even limb loss. Therefore, it’s important to take care of one’s feet by adopting good care and prevention habits, and consulting a podiatrist if problems arise for appropriate treatment and effective management.
