Feet are some of the hardest working parts of our body, but most of us only pay attention to them when something goes wrong. At Lotus Medical Centre in Brunswick, we support podiatrists who focus on prevention and proactive intervention to teach people about correct foot care and treat current issues.
Foot issues are surprisingly common and can range from painful ingrown toenails to tendonitis and even torn ligaments. As the podiatrists we support can address the root of the problem, their patients can expect a comprehensive treatment plan that includes home exercises to prevent the injury from reoccurring.
Who Needs a Podiatrists?
If you have any discomfort or pain in your feet or ankles, a visit to your podiatrist is well worth the time. But, if you feel pain in the whole body, it is recommended to visit a physiotherapist. Minor pain in your feet or ankles indicates something wrong, and if left untreated, it can escalate and cause significant damage and severe chronic pain. Your podiatrist also treats many other foot problems, including:
- Foot or lower limb deformity
- Circulatory diseases that affect the peripheral vascular system
- Soft tissue injuries
- Muscle injuries
- Corns and calluses
- Ingrown toenails
- Fungal infections
No foot condition is too large or too small to address. The podiatrists we support love meeting their new patients and setting them on the right path to better foot health.
