What is Podiatry at The Physio Movement Townsville?

Posted on: Aug 16th, 2017 by The Physio Movement | Categories: Sports Medicine & Nutrition



Podiatry is the newest area of Allied Health to join The Physio Movement Townsville and is dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and management of medical conditions and injuries of the foot, ankle and lower limb. 


A foot that does not function properly puts excessive strain on bones, ligaments and muscles, ultimately leading to pain and discomfort.

At The Physio Movement we have the ability to analyse the foot and leg and we assess each client in standing, walking and running using specialised gait and biomechanical technology.

Podiatry at The Physio Movement is for everyone, young (from a few months old) or old. We specialise in treating high mileage runners through to clients who have sustained injuries from day to day life.
