Short Story About Podiatry
At Podiatry and Moore we believe the foot is the foundation of a complex structure (our body). Without a strong and stable foundation the rest of that structure can suffer. A strong foundation is made up of form, flexibility, strength and support. If someone foot is lacking in one of these areas then problems can occur. These problems may be as simple as corns and callus but could also lead to chronic soft tissue and even bone injuries
This is the thinking and approach we take at Podiatry and Moore when we treat our patients. We look at their lower legs and complaints holistically. Not only do we treat the person’s complaint but also look at why it may be happening? Is it their foot type? Muscle imbalance? Exercise habits? Footwear? Poor flexibility? And so on. If we can find the appropriate cause/s then we can better treat the complaint and prevent it from happening again in the future
Podiatry and orthotics have always gone hand in hand. We do utilise orthotics at Podiatry and Moore but we do not rely on them. We pride ourselves on the depth and flexibility of treatments we make available to our patients. More often than not the complaint is multifactorial therefore treatment should reflect this. We look at the person’s lifestyle, footwear, foot posture, muscle strength, joint mobility etc. This will reflect then onto treatment often using a combination of treatments such as massage, mobilisation, acupuncture/prolotherapy, strapping, padding, footwear and if need orthotics.
Patient satisfaction is our main concern. So when we are treating our patients with we take their lifestyle, occupation, footwear choices etc all into consideration when creating a treatment plan. Not one treatment will suit everyone and we strive to work with the patient to come up with most appropriate and effective treatment plan.
