Pain in any part of the body is debilitating and can stop us from doing the things we want. Podiatrists treat a lot of different types of pain to get you moving again.
Older people often can’t reach their feet and therefore can’t care for them as they should. Podiatrists provide care for those who can’t care for themselves. One of the most important things in aged care is preventing major problems occurring and prolonging healthy living.
There are over 4,400 diabetes-related amputations in Australia every year and most are preventable with the correct treatment plan. As part of your healthcare plan it’s important to visit a podiatrist to prevent serious health issues and maintain healthy feet.
Regular visit with a podiatrist about your diabetes can often help avoid unnecessary surgery.
