Podiatrists are Foot Health Experts and understand the structure and movement of your feet and lower limbs.
They can assess, diagnose and treat foot, ankle, knee, leg or hip pain.
Given your feet alone house a quarter of the bones in your entire body, a podiatrist is best placed to get you moving, active or pain-free.
