Podiatrist Service

When was the last time you inspected your feet? Our feet are one of the most important components of our bodies and yet are often one of the most overlooked ones as well. Our feet support our bodies’ weight, take us places and are integral for us to do our daily activities.
Podiatry is the study of the feet, ankles and lower legs. A Podiatrist Service focuses on those areas of the body and is an essential service to keep your feet looking, feeling and functioning optimally. It involves diagnosing and treating disorders and conditions that affect one’s foot.

Podiatrist Service: Common Foot Problems

Your feet do so much heavy lifting for you, without you even realising it. So, it’s only natural that your feet need to be cared of and looked after. Here are some common foot conditions that are treated by Podiatrist Service.

  • Blisters are a result of either constant friction or due to an allergic reaction, fungal infection, herpes or bacterial infection. They are typically filled with fluid and can become painful and bothersome if left untreated.
  • Corns and Calluses are thickened and hard patches that form on the skin and can cause pain and discomfort. There are over-the-counter treatments available, but sometimes surgery may be necessary to remove them.
  • Athletes Foot is cause by the growth of the tinea fungi. Athletes foot can be contagious, so if you suspect you have it, please see a doctor immediately, both for your health and that of those around you.
  • Nail Disorders such as ingrown nails need to be treated to avoid the risk of infection
