Podiatry is a profession that deals with the health and development of the Foot & Ankle and any associated walking problems. During certain times, such as development in children, the foot needs a little extra help to function normally.
The podiatrist can deal with a wide range of developmental, functional and foot health issues. They may set up a care plan which could involve exercises, supportive footwear and Orthoses (insoles) or simply offer their professional advice.
Insoles are designed to help with foot function and may be used in both the long and short term. They typically fit within a suitable shoe to give improved support.
If you require an appointment with the Podiatrist you will need a referral from your GP or a healthcare professional such as an Orthotist, Physiotherapist or health visitor etc.
