Course Description


Podiatrists are health practitioners who diagnose and treat a wide range of foot and related lower limb conditions. Podiatrists analyse the way people walk or run and correct foot and lower limb problems that can sometimes cause pain elsewhere in the body, such as the knees. Podiatrists can improve foot and lower limb function in many ways, including the use of specialised shoe inserts called orthotic devices to correct alignment and assist with walking difficulties. Podiatrists may use physical therapy techniques to assist with rehabilitation of sports injuries or correct some foot problems such as nail problems, using minor surgical techniques. Podiatrists also work alongside other health professionals to deliver the best overall care for a patient with chronic disease such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis.
