If you are not sure if you should see a podiatrist, the Australian Podiatry Council has defined the scope of podiatry as: Podiatry deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs. The conditions podiatrists treat include those resulting from bone and joint disorders such as arthritis and soft-tissue and muscular pathologies, as well as neurological and circulatory disease. Podiatrists are also able to diagnose and treat any complications of the above, which affect the lower limb, including skin and nail disorders, corns, calluses and ingrown toenails. Foot injuries and infections gained through sport or other activities are also diagnosed and treated by podiatrists.
No referral from a GP is necessary; although you would need a GP management plan for extended primary health care for a chronic medical condition that needs treatment. If you’d like to know more give the Podiatry Clinic a call!
