Welcome to Complete Feet Podiatry,
Where Healthy Feet = Happy Feet!
A podiatrist is a medical clinician devoted to the study and treatment of foot disorders. Podiatrists diagnosis and provide treatment relating to the health and function of a person's foot, ankle and lower leg.Today, it is recommended that we take a minimum of 10,000 steps a day, in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle and for our general well being. Normal foot function can sometimes be put to the test, especially if your footwear does not fit properly. If your footwear is not fitting correctly, or doesn't support your feet adequately, pain or injury can occur with your daily activities. Some of the problems that show up are simple blisters, calluses and corns as well as ingrown toenails, joint pain, arch pain and even knee or lower back pain.
Many other factors can result in painful foot condition; these can arise from biomechanical factors in the gait cycle, infection and systemic disease. An assessment of your gait cycle and foot function by your podiatrist will determine whether you will benefit from the use of orthotics. Orthotics are insoles designed to help correct your foot function as well as providing support.
Other foot complaints include fungal infections of the skin and toenails, pain under the ball of your feet, heel pain eg. plantar fasciitis and diabetic foot complications.
Sporty adolescents endure a lot of impact on growing bones, joints and tendons sometimes resulting in injury and pain. The use of orthotics can minimise these injuries in conjunction with strengthening exercises. Footwear once again plays a major role in injury prevention not just with children but with adults as well.

I first heard of Complete Feet Podiatry when I experienced an ingrown toenail, and I now go every two months for feet/nail maintenance. Fiona is always friendly and her practice is spotless. If you have foot problems, I certainly recommend this is the place to go.
I've experienced rubbing corns on my feet for several months, which I started dreading putting my shoes on each day! I finally did something about it ... thanks to Complete Feet Podiatry.
I've lived with flat feet all my life and never realised that there was a fairly easy solution. I have finally found comfortable footwear that accommodate my orthotics! Thank you Fiona.
