The human foot is quite amazing, to say the least. It is designed to be strong, flexible, and functional, and this design allows it to do its job very well – as long as you don’t neglect its care. The foot is highly complex, containing a quarter of all the bones in the body, dozens of joints, and over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments, not to mention nerves and blood vessels.
All of these components work together to share the tremendous burden placed on the foot every day. It’s no surprise that feet are vulnerable to injury. Some foot ailments are caused by hereditary issues, some occur as a result of years of neglect and abuse, and others are injuries caused by accidents. Almost everyone experiences some degree of foot problems at some point. However, not enough seek treatment from a practitioner such as a podiatrist in Carlingford, Marrickville, or Epping.
Feet sometimes require special care from a podiatrist. Epping, Carlingford, and Marrickville residents have convenient access to Family & Sports Podiatry, a reputable and highly qualified podiatry practice in the Sydney area. The feet can sometimes be the first indicator of a systemic disease such as diabetes, kidney problems, or circulatory disorders. Arthritis is often found first in the feet. For this reason, if you are having any sort of foot pain, discomfort, or other issues, be sure to see a podiatrist in Marrickville, Carlingford, or Epping.
