Service Description

Podiatry, or podiatric medicine, is a branch of allied health devoted to the study of, diagnosis, and medical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle & lower extremities. A podiatrist is a health professional who deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs. At Pinnacle Health Group, we focus on lower limb biomechanics and use cutting edge techniques to capture accurate diagnosis.

 

The Pinnacle Treatment
The initial consultation with our Podiatrists is a thirty minute, complex assessment of your lower limbs. It may involve:

Assessment of Mechanical cause of Lower Limb Pain
Treadmill Video Gait Analysis
Prescription of Corrective Foot Orthoses for Lower Limb Realignment
Fitting and Adjustment of Orthotic Devices
Advice and modification of running shoes and other sporting footwear
