About Podiatry

 

A podiatrist studies for 3 years to obtain a BSc (Hones) degree in Podiatry or Podiatric Medicine. Podiatrists are highly skilled specialist clinicians that specialise in the assessment, diagnosis and management of foot, ankle and lower leg conditions/injuries.

Sports (musculoskeletal) podiatry is a branch of podiatry that specialises in sport and exercise medicine.

Sports podiatrists specialise in biomechanical assessments, sport/exercise related injury & mechanical issues of the foot, ankle & lower leg. Injuries to the foot, ankle & lower leg are often multifactorial in nature with poor run mechanics, footwear, reduced range of joint motion, muscular imbalances & increased mechanical stress above the levels at which soft tissue structures can tolerate just some of the factors that can lead to pain, eventual breakdown & injury.
