Podiatrist in Cockburn
The podiatry profession has undergone considerable growth and change in recent years.
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.
The conditions a podiatrist in Perth treat include those resulting from bone and joint disorders such as arthritis and soft-tissue and muscular pathologies as well as neurological and circulatory diseases. Podiatrists are also able to diagnose and treat any complications of the above which affect the lower limb, including skin and nail disorders, corns, calluses and ingrown toenails. Foot injuries and infections gained through sport or other activities are also diagnosed and treated by podiatrists.

She is experienced in all podiatry specialties, including general treatment, children, high-risk foot ulcerations, sports injuries, nail surgery, diabetic assessment and biomechanics.
