Our body is a brilliantly complex machine that works intricately together to not only produce movement, but to sustain our health and wellbeing. So when certain conditions or circumstances affect the body as a whole, like pregnancy, diabetes, arthritis or neurological conditions like cerebral palsy, it can have significant implications for the feet and legs. This can pose many painful or uncomfortable challenges for us, and can make walking and carrying out daily activities much more difficult.
Our podiatrists play a crucial role in helping manage these conditions by alleviating pain and discomfort, improving foot or leg function, or working closely to help prevent a range of complications. Click below to learn more about each of the conditions and how they can impact your feet, and if you’d like to talk with our team directly, get in touch with one of our Brisbane based podiatry clinics.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that leads to pain, inflammation and damage to your joints.
Diabetes affects your nerves and circulation, which can affect how well your feet are able to feel and heal, putting them at risk.
