What is Sports Podiatry?

Sports Podiatry is a sub speciality of Podiatry practice which focuses on the prevention, treatment and management of soft tissue and sports injuries of the lower limb and feet.  Areas of expertise include running/sport gait analysis, sports orthotics, sports footwear referrals, physical therapy of soft tissue including dry needling, exercise prescription and working with other medical and health practitioners to achieve best patient outcomes.
