Podiatrists (Podiatry) specilaise in all foot and lower limb complications. If there is a lower limb, knee, hip, heel or foot problem, then a Podiatrist is the best health porfessional to manage the problem.
Usually you will only need the one appointment. In that appointment an assessment, diagnosis, treatment & management plan is created.
At Barefeet we try to keep our subsequent appointments to a minimum.
We try & fix the problem the fist time- thats what expertise & experience is!
