What is Podiatry?
On average, we walk 3,650,000 steps per year, giving us a great reason to look after ourselves. Being active and physical may come with great difficulty to those with unhealthy feet or lower limb problems. Our lower limbs are the most predominantly used limbs on our body, and most of us will unknowingly take them for granted. Due to this, we need to maintain healthy feet, and lower limb function and mobility, in order to maximise our independence and quality of life.
Podiatry is a service we can provide at Your Path to Health that specialises in diagnosis, treatment and prevention of unhealthy lower limbs, mainly in the feet and ankles. This allows you to keep your feet’s 26 bones, 33 joints and complex puzzle of muscles, blood vessels, nerves and tendons strong and healthy to keep up with even the busiest of lifestyles and help people of all ages stay active.
