What is Podiatry?
The titles podiatrist and chiropodist are to some extent, interchangeable but ultimately it is a branch of medicine devoted to the study, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the lower leg, ankle and foot.
A key role of a Podiatrist is to improve and maintain tissue viability and loco-motor function. The Podiatrist promotes health, well-being and independence by improving function in order to reduce pain and maintain mobility.
Will Podiatry Help Me?
A podiatrist can advise you and your family on how to maintain health feet and lower limbs and podiatrists will help you to choose the right footwear.
It is advised to see a podiatrist if you suffering from painful feet, cracks or cuts, growths including warts, arch pain or heel pain. We can help with anything related to painful feet.
Perhaps you have a young child with foot problems, maintaining and caring for a child’s feet will benefit their entire lives.
Or are you worried about a family member who seems to be developing painful feet or conditions attributing to difficulty walking comfortably.

Additional Therapies use with Podiatry
We can also provide corrective methods such as orthotics to make walking easier or to help realign posture e.g. Pain in the hips or back can sometimes be caused by problems with the feet.
This machine produces high-frequency sound waves which stimulates blood circulation and cell activity, accelerating the healing process. It is used extensively in the treatment of sports injuries such as ankle and lower limb ligaments. Ultrasound is also used to break-down scar tissue and persistent bruising.
Taping is frequently used by our podiatrist/chiropodist to compliment the hands-on treatment they use. Taping can help reduce the strain on joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles. Taping can be used to help an injury / condition to recover faster or to reduce the risk of future injury. Our podiatrist/chiropodist can advise you regarding self-taping techniques, so that you can apply tape to the appropriate area before you participate in a sport / activity which we sell here at the clinic.
At SANDS Private Health Clinic we are able to refer patients between our practitioners to ensure your health needs are addressed as best as possible.
