What do Podiatrists do?
Podiatrists are qualified health professionals trained to diagnose, treat, and manage conditions of the feet and legs.
Healthy feet are important for everyone. Foot care is especially important for people with specific conditions such as diabetes, which can cause foot problems. It is also very important for infants and children whose feet are still developing.
Podiatrists treat general skin and nail problems, foot injuries, mechanical problems affecting the foot and lower limb, and complex foot and ankle problems.
No referral is necessary to access podiatry professional care services.
