Frustrated by Leg or Foot Pain?

We can help you live an active, healthy life again

Is leg or foot pain stopping you from doing your thing?

Mobility is the key to a happy life !

Science has proved that we need to be active in order to live long healthy lives.

We see people every day who are struggling to do the things they love like training, tramping, or just trying to keep up with their kids, because of problems with their legs or feet.

It's slowing them down, stopping them from joining in, embarrassing them, and limiting their lives.

We often see people who feel to have tried everything. They've been passed from pillar to post with no success. At Waikato Podiatry Clinic in Hamilton and Rototuna, we have a solution for you, whether it's a sports injury, complex long-standing problem, or a more common foot problem, we've probably seen and treated it before.

Do Your Active Kids Have Foot Problems?


Out kids are naturally active, as parents we know it can be hard keeping up sometimes. But just like adults, they can develop foot and leg problems that stop them from taking part and having fun. We've got years of experience in keeping Waikato's youngsters on the move and lots of positive cases to share.

FAQs

What will a podiatrist do on my first visit?

All the podiatrists at Waikato Podiatry clinics will start by asking about the problem you want our help with. They will listen to how you describe the problem and how it is affecting you so that they understand it from your perspective.

Then they will take a full medical history to make sure there is nothing else underlying that they need to know about before carrying out a physical assessment. The exact assessments will depend on the problem you are presenting with.

Your podiatrist will then give you a diagnosis of the problem. They will discuss treatment options with you and how you can work together to get the best results for you.

Does a podiatrist perform surgery?

In New Zealand podiatrists are qualified to administer local anaesthetic and perform surgical procedures like ingrowing toenail surgery or verruca removal. If we feel you require more complex surgery, we have a network of local orthopaedic surgeons specialising in foot and ankle surgery who we work closely with to refer you to.

Is it worth seeing a podiatrist?

Podiatrists are specialists in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting feet and legs. They spend three years training to focus on this area of the body. So if you are struggling with any foot or leg problems, they are the best first place to go.

Here at Waikato Podiatry we often see patients who have been passed from GPs to consultants, physiotherapists and other therapists and finally end up coming to see us. We have a great track record of resolving foot and leg problems that other professionals have not been able to. So yes, we think it is well worth coming to see a podiatrist.

What do podiatry clinics do?

Podiatrists are specialists in assessing, diagnosing and treating conditions affecting your feet and lower limbs. Here at Waikato Podiatry clinics we can help you with longstanding sports injuries, worries about your children's feet, heel and joint pain, problematic toenails, infections, sprains and much more.

How often should you see a podiatrist?

How often you need to see a podiatrist depends on the nature of your problem. For some conditions one visit may be enough but for others you may need regular ongoing appointments for maintenance and prevention.

Can you help me with my arthritis?

Arthritis is a common problem that occurs in the feet and we see it frequently. There are several treatment options that we can apply to reduce the pain of your arthritis and keep you doing what you love to do.
