About

Podiatrists are experts in foot, ankle, and lower limb health. They assist with foot problems, education, and management of foot complications, fall prevention and self-management of foot conditions, prescription of orthotics and insoles. They can help to prevent, diagnose, and treat a wide range of conditions including: 

  • ingrown toenails 

  • heel and arch pain 

  • skin problems 

  • balance issues 

  • sprains 

They can also treat foot problems that arise from underlying medical conditions such as diabetes and arthritis. Your podiatrist’s recommendations might include specific exercises, the use of custom-made inserts for your shoes, or medications to treat skin conditions. Some podiatrists specialise in different areas of practice, including sports, children, and workplace health.

Services are delivered in a culturally appropriate way for First Nations peoples.
