OUR PODIATRIST IS THE EXPERT IN TREATING:
HEEL, FOOT, TOES, SHIN, ANKLE, ARCH, KNEE & HIP PAIN
Do you value extensive experience & ongoing education in a practitioner?
Dr Louise Buchtmann has extensive experience and knowledge in the lower limb. See About Us page
A Podiatrist spends four years full time at University studying the lower limb and it’s funtion.
Do you want someone who knows exactly how to fix your problem?
A Podiatrist is the most qualified allied health practitioner to treat the lower limb.
Only a Podiatrist is allowed to prescribe and issue custom foot orthotics (orthoses / shoe inserts) due to their training and knowledge.
Other allied health practitioners may try to sell “off the shelf orthtoics” however the practitioners training is not the same as a Podiatrist.
If you have an unstable (not in alignment) foundation (feet), the the walls (legs) and roof (hips) of the house will not be stable and function correctly. This can cause long term & irreversible damage.
90% of heel, ankle, knee and hip pain comes from the feet position!
A Podiatrist changes the bony alignment of the joints in the feet to ensure they are stable and able to provide stability to the rest of the body.
