What is Podiatry?

Model Girl 2
Podiatrists are specialists in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limb, ankle and foot. It takes a 3 year full time degree to qualify as a Podiatrist and they are regulated by the Health & Care Professions Council.


Our Podiatrists have years of experience working with amature and elite athletes, cyclists, footballers and rugby players to help improve their performance and reduce their risk of injury. Abnormal or inefficient foot biomechanics and gait can cause injury and reduce sporting performance. Implementation of foot and leg exercises or prescription of foot orthotics can correct your foot biomechanics and gait, reduce injury risk, treat existing injuries and possibly improve sporting performance.
