FAQs about Podiatry

You should see a podiatrist if you experience persistent foot or ankle pain, have a foot injury, notice changes in the skin or nails of your feet, or have conditions like diabetes that put your feet at risk.

Podiatrists can treat patients of all ages, including children. They can address pediatric foot and gait problems, such as flat feet and in-toeing.

During your initial treatment your podiatrist will take a brief medical history and then examine your feet and discuss your concerns. A treatment plan will be suggested and carried out with your agreement. You will be advised as to whether any further treatment is necessary or refer accordingly.

No that’s not necessary. Anyone can book an appointment with a Podiatrist, you don’t need a referral from your GP.

Please wear the shoes, sporting shoes or walking boots that you most commonly wear if they relate to the concern that you have. You may wish to bring a selection of different shoes with you. If you wear or have worn insoles please also bring these. This will allow us to assess whether your shoes could be contributing to the problem. If your concern is related to your nails then please remove any nail varnish prior to the appointment.

Podiatrists can provide guidance on proper footwear, foot hygiene, and exercises to help prevent foot problems. Regular check-ups with a podiatrist can also aid in early detection and prevention.
