Podiatry is concerned with the way our lower limbs function, checking for abnormalities and possible causes of pain in the foot, ankle, knee and back.
Many patients attend the podiatric clinic for the management of a wide range of sports including professional and amateur: running; football; skiing and rugby and have access to a variety of treatments.
What is a Podiatrist?
Our expert podiatrists will use a range of diagnostic tests like gait analysis to analyse your movement and function, making recommendations for treatments such as customised orthotics, trainer/footwear advice and, where appropriate, a structured training or rehabilitation programme.
The podiatry team works together with other specialists to analyse a variety of orthopaedic conditions and design a personalised treatment plan for each patient. You will normally be referred to a podiatrist by one of our orthopaedic surgeons, however many patients self refer to access services.
