The very best care

Podiatrists are specialists who treat feet, ankle and lower leg conditions. With twenty six bones in each foot, four layers of muscle plus associated vascular and neural systems the foot is a complex structure. Treatment may include physical removal of the presenting problem, exercise to help internal structures heal or orthotics to help with the function of the foot.

Some of the current treatments available at the clinic include -
