Orthotics are flexible inserts for your shoes. They are designed to improve foot function, by promoting appropriate foot and lower limb alignment. They also help your feet provide ideal weight distribution while you’re standing and walking.
There are 2 types of orthotics that we recommend and use:
Orthotics are not our standard “first solution”, when possible we try to identify and incorporate other options. However, when Orthotics are required, we use the latest technology and provide ongoing strategies to help maximise the performance of your feet – while reducing the pain they have been causing.
An innovative diagnostic tool that we utilise in our clinic to get even better insight into our patient’s feet while moving and standing.
We provide our patient’s with a printed summary, outlining any abnormalities with standing and walking, plus comparisons to ideal results.
The use of a treadmill, camera and technology allows our Podiatrists to conduct state of the art assessments. These accurately identify causes of pain or problems with walking and running.
This analysis means we are in the best position to understand and analyse your foot and lower limb function, plus your orthotic and footwear performance.
You are able to view your walking or running form, giving you a better understanding of the factors that may be causing pain or reduction in performance which gives you the greatest chance to implement changes.
An easy and pain free application which produces effective skin reactions to help resolve persistent warts.
The process causes blistering of the skin, which restricts the blood supply to the wart in an effort to kill it. As with any blisters, the dead skin will grow away from the normal skin, while new healthy tissue takes its place.
Your feet function best when everything is in the right place. Many factors can create changes in your feet, which ultimately results in imbalances and compensatory reactions.
To return your feet to best functional position, we recommend mobilisation & manipulation.
Musculoskeletal pain and injury is generally caused by weakness and compensation in the foot and lower limbs. Foot strengthening techniques are an effective way to prevent, resolve and rehabilitate from injury.
Podiatrists play a vital role in assessment and prevention of foot complications associated with diabetes. We recommended people with diabetes have a diabetic foot assessment annually.
Having properly fitted and supportive shoes can prevent many skin and nail problems, plus foot and lower limb injuries.
Our Podiatrists are experts in assessing feet and advising on the suitability of current or future footwear. Two common footwear problems we regularly see are correct level of support and that the footwear is a proper fit for your foot type.
We don’t want to exclude anyone from podiatry treatment. So for those who are unable to travel to our clinics, we can offer podiatry visits to your home.
Family, staff and Case Managers are kept up to date with your treatments. This ensures the highest quality of care is provided, so optimal foot health is maintained and prevention strategies are understood.
We provide a thorough analysis of your running form, along with athletic footwear assessment and advice. Our analysis and treatments help enhance your running technique, avoid injury and improve their performance.
A running technique assessment and training may help you if you:
A Controlled Ankle Movement walker or Moon Boot is professionally fitted in our clinics. By immobilising and reducing pressure to the foot and ankle, fractures of the feet or chronic musculoskeletal problems are treated.
