Podiatry

What is podiatry?


We're glad you asked.

A podiatrist is a specialist whose focus is on diagnosis, management and rehabilitation as well as prevention of concerns relating to your foot and lower limb. This can take many different forms. NZ trained Podiatrist's come exclusively from AUT with a Bachelor of Health Science, majoring in Podiatry.

Podiatry is a large field with involvement in a number of different client groups from athletes to the elderly and everywhere in between. To specialise within this field, for example as a sports podiatrist or diabetic specialist, there are no formal requirements. Having said this, at Auckland podiatry specialists Sports Lab we love to learn and always attempt to remain up to date with the ever changing world of podiatric biomechanics. Just like all of the team at Sports Lab we value ongoing education and upskilling. Our Auckland podiatrist is one of the only podiatrists in New Zealand who has pursued this special interest at a masters level, whilst continuing to work clinically.

Biomechanical and running specialty

Auckland podiatrist Sports Lab offers one of the few, truly specialised podiatric services in the country. We will assess you in action and determine the role your foot plays in any concerns you have. Our principal podiatrist, Aaron, has completed his masters in biomechanics and gait analysis. 

As podiatry specialists these are the areas in which we believe we excel compared to general podiatrists:
 
  • The intricacies of how your foot moves in sport and how this differs to other activities
  • How the movement of your foot effects the whole body and vice versa
  • Orthotics are not the only arrow in our quiver
  • We understand athletes
You seldom move your feet in isolation so why should they be assessed that way. Our Auckland CBD podiatrists place a big focus on assessment of the whole body in movements as close to your chosen sport as we can replicate.
