What is it?
Podiatry is the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of people with foot, ankle, and lower limb problems and injuries.
What does this involve?
Here at Circle, we have a fully qualified HPC registered Podiatrist. Our podiatrist specialises in foot and lower limb biomechanics, and uses state of the art dynamic pressure scanners to help assess and diagnose a variety of problems, including: heel pain, shin splints, calf and knee problems, and many more. Treatment of such problems includes advice, exercise, and, when necessary, use of orthoses (insoles).
Our Podiatrist consultants have strong links with the Orthapaedic team, to further investigate problems with the use of x-ray, MRI scanning, etc. who may occasionally need to carry out surgical, depending on the specific nature of the problem. These procedures include ankle arthroscopy, bunion removal, ankle replacement, and many more.
