What is a foot doctor?

Podiatrist – it’s an odd word isn’t it so it’s no wonder most people refer to us as their foot doctor! According to the Collins Dictionary “A podiatrist is a person whose job is to treat and care for people’s feet. Podiatrist is also a more modern term for chiropodist”.

At Advance Foot Clinic all of our Podiatrists are all Australian Accredited Podiatrists with AHPRA – Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. Each has undergone extensive study and continuing professional development to ensure they provide the highest level of podiatry services to our clients.

As a Podiatrist (foot doctor), we specialise in conditions of the feet and lower limbs to ensure your body receives the support it needs to support you through your daily life.  We often don’t really think about how much we expect of our feet and legs until there is a problem. Looking after your feet and legs through a yearly checkup with your podiatrist and/or regular visits in regard to specific problems is an integral part of your health and wellbeing.

When your gait is out of alignment, or your shoes are not fitting correctly, it can create not only foot pain but pain in your legs and back and that of course impacts your overall well-being and puts pressure and strain on the rest of your body.
