What We Treat
Podiatrists specialise in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders affecting the foot and lower limb.
At Better Feet and Body Podiatry we aim to provide our clients with the highest quality podiatry service to ensure all your foot health needs are met.
Better Feet and Body Podiatry has a wide referral network and works in conjunction with other allied health professionals to provide you with fast and effective treatment of your foot problems.
We understand that your foot and leg troubles may be related to a number of other postural issues, and that your symptoms may benefit from a multidisciplinary approach to treatment.
The podiatrists at Better Feet and Body Podiatry are highly skilled and experienced and we would be delighted if we could be of assistance in getting you back on your feet.
Our custom and pre-made orthotics can improve your foot alignment, posture and biomechanics. They can be used alongside your treatment plan to help heal and prevent a range of conditions, including knee pain, osteoarthritis and lower back pain.
Orthotics can slide seamlessly into your shoes for maximum support while you walk.
CHILDREN'S FOOT HEALTH
Our friendly and experienced podiatrists treat patients of all ages, including children. If there is a family history of foot-related issues or you notice your child with out-of-the-ordinary reactions to physical activity, we can assess, treat and manage their symptoms.
We can also recommend appropriate footwear and monitor their posture for healthy development.
SPORTS INJURIES & REHAB
Whether you’re experiencing a sprained ankle, shin splints or another sport-related foot injury, we can help you manage symptoms for fast and effective recovery.
Our experienced podiatrists will provide end-to-end care, from an extensive biomechanical assessment, to immediate treatment and prevention plans for future injuries.
Put a quick end to your throbbing foot pain caused by ingrown toenails.
Our specialists can offer immediate treatment and advice for prevention. We also offer minor in-clinic surgery to permanently prevent your nail from causing issues in the future.
DIABETES AND YOUR FEET
Book in your recommended diabetes podiatry check-up annually, bi-annually or quarterly depending on your risk factors.
We assess the circulation of your feet, feeling and reflexes, toenails, skin health and joint conditions such as bunions. Our ethos is to monitor your foot health before these minor issues develop into more serious complications.
FOOT MOBILISATION THERAPY
Biomechanical and foot alignment issues may be causing your foot or leg pain, but it can be improved through foot mobilisation therapy (FMT).
Our podiatrists will couple your FMT with a comprehensive gradual strength training program, which can help reduce painful symptoms over time and helps you return to regular activities.
BIOMECHANICAL, GAIT & POSTURE
Abnormalities in your gait and posture could be linked to poor biomechanics which may be the underlying cause of your injury.
Through visual gait analysis, joint and muscle testing, and strength and flexibility testing, our thorough assessment of your gait and posture will inform our holistic injury management plan.
HIGH RISK FOOT & WOUND MANAGEMENT
A high-risk foot is one that’s at risk of developing progressive deformity, ulceration or wound formation, infection or recent amputation.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, our podiatrists will provide an assessment of your foot’s circulation, nerves, skin health and foot shape to provide holistic care for your recovery. We can also provide comprehensive wound care management plans and referrals to specialists if required.
VASCULAR DOPPLER ULTRASOUND
Discover what may be the cause of your foot and leg symptoms with an in-clinic Vascular Doppler ultrasound.
The non-invasive doppler ultrasound will help us assess the condition of your peripheral circulation of the feet and legs. It can also help us identify underlying causes of your symptoms before we commence treatment or refer for further diagnostic testing.
