PODIATRY

Our feet can carry us through 10,000 steps a day, get up the next day, and do this all over again. It is very important we look after our feet to continue carrying us through everyday life. Our podiatrists at EVOLVE HEALTH ILLAWARRA are here to help you.

WHAT IS PODIATRY?

A Podiatrist is a medical specialist who diagnoses and treats conditions affecting the foot, ankle and structures of the leg.  A Podiatrist is highly skilled in assessment of the shape and motion of the limb allowing for an effective diagnosis of the cause of injuries and/or the development of deformities.
A Podiatrist is also able to identify skin conditions, nail conditions and other chronic health conditions and provide the right treatment pathway.
