work to diagnose and treat problems with patients’ lower limbs (ankles and feet). Here at Parliament Physio Clinic, we treat patients with sports injuries, flat feet, arthritis, and diabetes. Our specialists treat all manner of lower limb and foot complaints and focus on the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation through several different therapies.
Common presenting conditions are a pain when walking and include:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- Morton‘s neuroma
- Knee pain / Patellar-femoral pain
- Lower back pain
- Posterior tidal tendonitis
Following the assessment, the podiatrist will recommend the best management course for the issue; this may involve modifying activity, footwear advice, insole prescription, or a personal exercise program comprising stretching or strengthening exercises to do at home.
General podiatry focuses on assessing and treating skin and nail conditions of the foot; the type of treatment carried out depends on the presenting issue. Podiatrists may use manual debridement; this means removing dead or diseased tissue through the means of sharps or drills. During a general assessment, the podiatrist will examine the foot's neurological and vascular status, and patients often leave the initial session relieved of pain. Podiatrists possess certification in local anesthetics administration; therefore, they can carry out nail surgery and other minor surgeries to the foot or toes when indicated.
