Checking The Reality of Foot Health in Toowoomba
It’s Foot Health Month in Australia and the team at The Podiatrist, led by Managing Director Troy Parsons, is on a mission to see Toowoomba take advantage of the expertise of Podiatrists when it comes to getting back on their feet, out of pain, and achieving the levels of activity they want - not the levels they may be currently restricted to.
Feet and family, the best of both worlds
Here at The Podiatrist, our team are everything. They’re the reason we thrive as a company and have grown exponentially over the past couple of decades. We love to celebrate our team and acknowledge their hard work and the way they go above and beyond to help their patients reach their full potential.
Why your foot and leg pain has come back!
You rested your feet. You stopped running, or playing that sport, or any other activities that would aggravate the pain while it was getting better. You iced your feet, kept them elevated on the couch and took anti-inflammatories and pain-killers. You stopped wearing those not-so-good shoes during your recovery. Perhaps you even had a cortisone injection. Yet despite all this effort, your pain has now returned. So why has this happened when you’ve done everything as instructed to begin with?
Can A Podiatrist Help You?
Quick Local Ideas to Finish These September School Holidays With!
Podiatrists spend at least four years studying the anatomy, physiology and biomechanical function of the feet and lower limbs. This isn’t an easy endeavour, given that a single foot has 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This makes Podiatrists the foot health experts when it comes to pains and problems that develop - and very knowledgeable indeed!
We’re halfway through our Term 3 School Holidays here in Toowoomba and if you’re running out of ideas to help keep your kids occupied, healthy and happy then you’re in luck! We thought we’d make this last week of holidays that little bit easier for you and dig around for 5 local events and ideas that you can take advantage of this week!
Case Study: Jane's Journey with Painful Corns & Callus
Case Study: Pain In The Opposite Leg After Surgery
Jane is a 36-year-old stay-at-home mother of two. She enjoys staying active with
running, yoga, Crossfit - and of course her kids! She presented to our clinic in November 2017, suffering from pain in the balls of her feet.
Case Study: Permanently Correcting A Painful Ingrown Toenail
We first met Brad when he came in for an appointment with our Podiatrist, Martin. Brad had been suffering from a painful left hip for the past four months, following a hip replacement for his right hip. The pain began as a dull ache and was slowly getting worse, with the occasional “locking” sensation present too.
We first met Shane three months ago when he came in with one painful ingrown toenail on his left big toe.
We love what we do - and it shows!
We understand how difficult and unnerving it is to have a painful problem and to put your recovery in the hands of someone you’re meeting for the very first time.
How Podiatrists can help your dad feel better on his feet!
Father’s Day is this weekend and we LOVE the opportunity to celebrate the amazing dad’s in our lives (a little more than we already do on a daily basis!). To veer away from the usual ties, socks and mugs, we thought we’d talk about how an appointment with a Podiatrist can do wonders for dad’s feet, his mood and his well-being! So we’ve made a list of SIX ways we can help your dad feel better on his feet.
(By the way, if you ARE after some socks for dad, we’re fundraising for Drought Relief with funky coloured socks - available in our clinics!)
