BODYWORKS What is Podiatry?
Podiatrists at Bodyworks clinic are experts in treating conditions of the feet.
Podiatry is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and other disorders of the feet. Podiatry aims to improve the mobility, independence and quality of life for people by providing preventative care, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of problems affecting the feet, ankles and lower limb.
The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists recommends annual foot checks for all members of the family. Podiatrists are skilled in screening and health education, so a visit to the podiatrist need not always be about sore feet. Most people will have troublesome feet at some point in their lives.
“When our feet hurt, we hurt all over” by the ancient Greek Philosopher Socrates
