Want To Run Pain-Free For Longer?
Want To Run Pain-Free For Longer?
Have you ever wondered how runners can just keep going and going? Marathons, ultra-marathons, Iron Mans… and they’re completed with a regular, constant pace and a massive grin at the finish line. Are these people just born to be runners? Does everything just align for them (biomechanically and otherwise), hence their decision to train and run massive distances?

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.

Why your foot and leg pain has come back!
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?
Can A Podiatrist Help You?
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!

Case Study: Pain In The Opposite Leg After Surgery

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.

This is usually by patients that have only experienced Podiatry as trimming toenails, as told by their grandparents or family member.

We thought we’d fill you in (and likely surprise you if you haven’t been to our clinic before) with FIVE things we can help you with other than your nails that you may not even know!

Lunula Laser - Bringing World Class Facilities to Toowoomba
Lunula Laser - Bringing World Class Facilities to Toowoomba
Here at The Podiatrist, fungal nail infections (onychomycosis) are a common problem that patients come seeking advice and treatment for. People are generally concerned that it makes their feet look ‘ugly’ or ‘unhealthy’, and tend to get embarrassed about it. This causes many people to either cover up their feet with shoes or apply nail paint, both of which will encourage the infection to thrive.

Our expert team will get you out of pain and back to doing the things you love.
