Sports Podiatrist - Your local expert for foot and ankle conditions

August 7, 2017

Leonardo Di Vinci once described the human foot as “a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art”. This is due to the complexities involved with each foot possessing 33 joints, over 100 muscles and 26 bones which are all integral to proper foot function and contribute to numerous leg, foot and ankle conditions. These complexities often make pathologies affecting the lower leg, foot and ankle difficult to solve. Put your trust in our Sports Podiatrists, whose four year degree specifically focuses on the leg, foot and ankle.
