Galleria Podiatry is your local provider of podiatry services in Perth. Whether you have foot pain, ingrown toenails, or tendon issues, we can help. Call us today to schedule an appointment or learn more about our services.

What is Podiatry?

Podiatry involves the treatment of conditions of the lower limb and foot. These conditions vary widely, from flat feet to tendonitis to plantar fasciitis. As allied health professionals, podiatrists have the training to identify, diagnose and treat foot and limb issues, and most treatments are claimable with medical coverage.

Podiatrists do more than just treat issues; they can also educate you on how to care for your body. For instance, if you have frequent ingrown toenails, we can teach you how to properly cut your nails to avoid painful ingrown problems in the future. We can also help with the treatment and care of diabetic foot problems like ulcers and blood pressure.

Feet are very active parts of the body, and if you play sports, you might sustain foot injuries. Sports podiatry can help properly treat injuries and promote fast healing. We can even help you find the best footwear for your particular sport and gait.

What is Pronation?

Pronation, or “rolling inwards” of the feet is normal and necessary for shock absorption as the foot adapts to the ground. Abnormal, or “excessive” pronation is one of the most common causes of foot and leg discomfort. This is an example of faulty foot biomechanics.

With excessive pronation the arch flattens and collapses causing soft tissues to stretch, resulting in joint surfaces functioning at unnatural angles to eachother.

At first excessive pronation can cause fatigue in the feet and legs. As the problem persists, strain on muscles, tendons and ligaments of the foot and lower leg cause permanent problems and deformities.

Rapid shoe wear, ankles rolling inwards, heel pain, arch pain, knee pain, leg pain (shin), hip or lower back pain may all be signs of excessive pronation. Bunions and hammer toes are just two deformities of the foot that can be caused by excessive pronation.

Not everyone requires treatment for excessive pronation. This depends on the severity of the problem. To reduce pronation, and therefore your pain levels, your PODIATRIST may prescribe custom-moulded shoe inserts. These are manufactured from a 3D laser foot scan of each foot to specifically cater for individual foot complaints.
