WHAT IS A PODIATRIST?

Podiatrists are highly qualified, tertiary-educated health clinicians who are trained to assess, treat and manage most lower limb diseases, disorders, pain conditions and injuries.

Our podiatrists use the latest technology, evidence-based treatments and managements to assess, diagnose and treat a variety of health conditions that affect the lower leg. Visits to our podiatrists at our Newstead location will help reduce pain, improve function and manage your health conditions to keep you moving. Podiatrists are able to refer you for varying diagnostic or investigative imaging such as x-rays, ultrasound and MRI scans. Our podiatrists are also able to do toe nail procedures for ingrown toe nails to permanently remove part or all of a nail with local anaesthetics.

WHAT DOES A PODIATRY APPOINTMENT INVOLVE?

The aim of your first podiatry appointment is to:

  • conduct a comprehensive assessment
  • develop a clear understanding of your health history
  • collect information about your current symptoms and condition
  • examine your feet, ankles and legs
  • assess movement of the joints
  • assess strength of the muscles of the feet and legs
  • assess walking pattern and footwear
  • assess your skin and nails

Please bring your shoes with you and your podiatrist will also review your current footwear and provide recommendations and any modifications necessary. 

We do ask our patients to bring any relevant medical assessments of the injury (such as x-rays or MRI scan) to the first appointment.

Once we have all the necessary information, your podiatrist will tailor a specific treatment plan. This treatment plan may include:

  • massage and deep tissue release
  • dry needling
  • foot mobilisation
  • exercises and stretches
  • footwear advice and modifications
  • custom orthotics

 You will always leave your session with a plan for how to get on top of your condition.
