Systemic and neurovascular conditions affect the feet and legs as part of affecting the whole body. At times, the effect on the feet is very significant as it affects your ability to walk - or makes it very painful when you do.
While we cannot ‘cure’ systemic or neurovascular conditions, we can help lessen the impact on the feet and legs - reducing pain, increasing comfort, providing helpful advice and working to improve your quality of life. At South Burnett Podiatry we are passionate about keeping you active and mobile, so you can keep doing the things you love.
