What Is A Podiatrist?

Do you wake up with aching feet? Are your heels sore after walking or have you had trouble getting rid of athlete's foot? These are all signs that it may be time to seek the help of a Mount Claremont podiatrist.

A podiatrist is a doctor with an interest in conditions affecting the feet, ankles, and lower limbs. They assess these areas of the body with an aim of diagnosing the problem and working on a treatment plan to help you feel your best.

How A Mount Claremont Podiatrist May Help You

When evaluating, identifying, and assisting you with lower extremity and foot issues, your nearby Mount Claremont podiatrist might utilise one or a mix of the following methods:

Nail Care

Proper nail maintenance can be beneficial in pinpointing issues concerning the nails before they turn severe, such as administering remedies for fungal nail infections.

Wart Treatment

Advancements in wart treatments have been made over the years, potentially incorporating natural remedies, cryotherapy, or freezing methods.

Diabetic Foot Care

Individuals with diabetes understand the significance of receiving foot care from a podiatrist, which involves routine assessments to inspect circulation and identify potential alterations.

Corn And Callus Treatment

A corn or callus should invariably be treated by a podiatrist, since the focus is on remedying the core concern rather than only the outward symptom.

Common Foot And Lower Leg Conditions

We assist with common conditions, including:

  • Heel And Ankle Pain

    Pain in the heel and ankle might be caused by plantar fasciitis or a different ailment. No matter the origin, this discomfort can hinder your desired mobility.

  • Sports Injuries

    Typical sports-related injuries impacting the feet encompass Achilles tendonitis, stress fractures, sprained ankles, and heel spurs.

  • Ingrown Toenails

    Tightly fitting shoes, overly close toenail clipping, or toe injuries can all contribute to ingrown toenails, causing pain, tenderness, redness, and puffiness.

  • Fungal Nail Infections

    Nail fungus infections can lead to the thickening or development of brittle, crumbly, or uneven nails. Typically, this impacts toenails, but it can also affect fingernails.

  • Calluses And Corns

    A callus is a thickened and rough area of skin usually found on the soles of the feet, while corns are similar but are generally smaller, harder, and more painful.

  • Warts

    Warts found on the feet, often called plantar warts, are regularly painful, solid, and grainy formations appearing on the heel or ball of the foot.

  • Athlete’s Foot

    Athlete's foot doesn't only affect athletes; it's a fungal skin infection that typically develops when an individual wears tight shoes, leading to sweaty feet.

  • Diabetic Foot Care

    People with diabetes are at higher risk of developing foot problems due to the likelihood of nerve damage in the feet, blood circulation issues, and risk of infection.

What to Expect During Podiatry Care

Comprehensive Assessment

We aim to uncover the underlying cause of your foot, ankle, or lower limb issue, and work with you to fix it. This may include many questions and some physical assessments so we can be as thorough in our assessment as possible.

Customised Diagnosis

No two diagnoses will be exactly the same. A customised diagnosis is for you and you alone, and helps to determine which treatment/s may be best for you/

Tailored Treatment

As a result of your customised diagnosis, your treatment will be tailored specifically for you and your individual concerns and needs.

Seeing an experienced podiatrist will not only ensure you get the most accurate diagnosis, but they will also assess your feet and general health to determine how quickly you are likely to respond to SWIFT Microwave Therapy.
