Podiatric medicine separates the structure of the foot into three main areas: the forefoot, comprised of the many bones and soft tissue related to the toes; the midfoot, containing multiple joints and the arch; and the hind foot, linking the mid foot to the ankle and incorporating the heel.

The foot is a complex structure working as a shock absorber and a propulsion mechanism as well as providing balance and support for your entire body. 

Your feet are placed under considerable stress over the course of your lifetime just as a result of every day life.

Caring for your feet through preventative care and seeking treatment by utilising podiatry services for aches and pains as soon as they arise will reduce the risk of serious injury and long term damage and foot pain.

Engaging with our Kent Podiatrists and catching problems early with the Total Podiatry 360° assessment process generally means treatment will be straight forward and it is possible to facilitate a quick and full recovery.
