A podiatrist is a foot specialist who diagnoses, treats and prevents conditions affecting the foot, ankle and lower leg. At Physionique, we specialize in 2 main types of podiatry:
We assess and treat conditions caused by flat or pronated (rolled in) feet, high arches, leg length discrepancy, and children’s walking problems.
Bunions, heel pain, shin splints, knee pain and even back pain can be caused by poor foot mechanics. Treatment involves orthotic prescription (inserts) and advice on correct footwear.
We assess and treat conditions affecting the toenails, skin, circulation and nerves of the feet. Examples are corns, calluses, fungus, warts and diabetic foot complications.
