What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is a foot and ankle specialty that provides, diagnosis and treatment of patients with foot and lower limb injuries.

The areas that we cover are biomechanical and gait assessment,
podiatric sports medicine, paediatric podiatry and management
of hypermobility syndrome

We are a group of HPC Registered Podiatrists who assess and treat the lower limb for biomechanical deformities and musculoskeletal injuries. By looking at the way certain joints and muscles function the Podiatrists are able to determine if the way you are walking may be contributing to a current injury or problem. All patients are assessed with slow motion video gait analysis by the Podiatrist to visualise their individual gait pattern.

Some of the injuries of the feet and lower limbs that we treat are…

Heel Pain
Arch Pain
Plantar Fasciitis
Metatarsal and big toe joint pain


Achilles tendon injuries
Ankle Pain
Shin Pain
Knee pain

Lower Back Pain
Iliotibial Band Syndrome
Leg Length difference
