LET US DIAGNOSE YOUR PROBLEM,
FIX IT AND GET YOU TRAINING AGAIN!
A foot that does not function properly puts excessive strain on bones, ligaments and muscles,
ultimately leading to pain and discomfort. We are able to assess and treat all concerns or injuries of the foot,
ankle, knee and lower limbs.
Podiatry First Sports has the ability to analyse the foot and leg and assess each client in standing, walking and running on a specialised computer system. This enables us to accurately diagnose the problem and create a tailored treatment plan after a full biomechanical assessment is complete. Treatment plans may include strengthening exercise program, mobilisation and hands on therapy, orthoses or shoe advice. Our Podiatrists pride themselves in their extensive knowledge of biomechanical related injuries and look to address the areas of concern immediately.
Common sports injuries we see are; plantar fasciitis, heel pain, achilles tendonitis, medial knee pain, shin splints, peroneal pain, ankle instability/pain, stress fractures, Morton’s Neuroma, bunions, callus and corns, and blisters, just to name a few.
We guarantee you will walkout from your initial visit with less pain
SORE / INJURED FEET
I have sore aching feet. My heels hurt. My arches hurt. I have flat feet, and I walk funny, I have pain in my ankle, shin, knee, or the ball of my foot.
I have orthotics and want to replace them. I have been told I need orthotics or arch supports.
I would like to have a Podiatrist fit my shoes. I’m not sure what type of shoe I need. I always have problems finding a comfortable shoe.
NUMB OR UNCOMFORTABLE
I suffer from numb feet on long rides. I can’t find cycling shoes that feel comfortable.
Most frequent questions and answers;
No, you do not need a referral.
In a few cases, such as Diabetic patients, Podiatry can be claimed through medicare, this is at your Doctor’s discretion though.
Yes, if you are covered for Podiatry under extras you can use your health fund, we have HICAPS at all clinics so you can claim on the spot.
It really depends on the individual, their podiatric concerns and how quickly they develop.
We may see clients every 4-6 weeks. For others, we may only see them once or twice a year for a ‘clean up’ which allows them to care for their feet at home.
