What is a Podiatrist?
Podiatrists are university educated foot health professionals. They diagnose and treat specific foot and lower leg conditions including foot problems associated with children, sporting activities, work, diabetes and arthritis. Our feet are often the most neglected and forgotten part of our bodies. Research has shown that people are most likely to have services their car than to have had their feet checked by a podiatrist. Yet our feet are our main mode of transport, carrying us on a journey of 128,000 kilometers in a life time- the equivalent of three times around the world.
PV Podiatry aims to ‘cure’ your problem. We aim to treat the source of your condition rather than treat the pain itself. Treatment consists of correctly diagnosis you condition and educating you as to why and how the condition has occurred and more importantly how it can be prevented in the future.
We are interested in all different shapes of feet and different problems. We have a strong focus on self management and ensuring that you take responsibility for you condition. Self maintenance and advice will always be provided in order to further progress your treatment and achieve the desired outcomes.
PV Podiatry aims to enhance your full physical health and well being.
PV Podiatry has a strong commitment to provide a comprehensive and quality service to all patients. It’s also dedicated to provide maximum satisfaction through aiming to achieve each individual’s needs. The clinic also prides itself on professionalism and strictly complies with the standards set by the Australia Podiatry Association. We are delighted to be able to contribute and aid with your health and well being in order to fulfill a more active and healthier lifestyle.
