About Us

Tracy Anderson has owned and operated the successful business since March 2012. Tracy has been joined by other like minded Podiatrists who work as Associates.

Podiatrists are highly skilled health professionals who have been trained to BSc Honours Degree level to diagnose, treat, and provide specialist advice on how to prevent and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs.

They also aim to keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections. Some Podiatric problems are inherited; some develop from the negative effects of systemic illnesses, from the pressure of ill-fitting shoes or physical trauma.
