What does a podiatrist do?

Greg Dower & Ryan Harris from the Brisbane HeatA podiatrist is a valued member of the Allied Health profession who registered by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) to assess, diagnose and treat foot and lower limb pathologies. These problems may include skin and nail disorders, foot and ankle complaints such as injuries, arthritis, diabetic and other medical complications. Furthermore, all my FootDr podiatrists are trained to examine patients for gait disorders or problems with walking and posture.

At my FootDr, our podiatrists are closely aligned with other Allied Health practitioners, general practitioners and medical specialists. This is especially evident in our Australian Foot & Ankle Institute’s Centre of Excellence. As Australia’s largest podiatry group, we are at the forefront of podiatric footcare with our innovative medical technologies and excellent patient outcomes. In fact we have pioneered many of these treatments in Australia such as the TAG Brace, fungal nail laser, Exacta3D scanning technology for custom footwear and extracorporeal shockwave therapy.
