Podiatrist Lara Reynolds has moved back to Geraldton after six years working in Darwin. In Darwin, Lara gained experience in dealing with foot pain problems such as heel pain syndrome, tendonitis, shin splints, Achilles tendinopathy and chronic ingrown toenails. As such Lara has a keen interest in biomechanics, preventing injury in children and reducing risk of foot problems in diabetics.
Podiatrists play an important role in maintaining the mobility of many people in our community from the fit and active to the elderly and disabled people. This is achieved through the ongoing monitoring of foot health, in particular of those with foot pain, circulation problems and diabetes.
Don’t put up with foot pain any longer. Have your feet checked. There is no need to suffer sore feet. There is no need to have recurrent ingrown toenails. Get a step ahead and make an appointment to have your feet checked.
