Sports Activities

We offer a podiatry service focusing on treating musculoskeletal problems of the lower limbs, such as heel pain, shin splints, flat feet, high arches, bunions, knee pain and ankle instability.

We believe in providing a range of treatments and do not solely rely on prescribing orthotics. Our objective is to build a solid foundation incorporating different therapies such as muscle strengthening, stretching and orthotics (custom insoles), all designed to complement upper body function.

A comprehensive biomechanical assessment is conducted to determine whether orthotics are required and/or if other treatment options could be of benefit. The assessment includes a range of motion, muscle strength, balance and gait movements to determine the best therapies are used to treat pain and dysfunction and optimise gait efficiency.

A treatment plan is developed and can include: strapping, massage, strengthening and stretching exercises, changing footwear, altering the current exercise/activities and/or orthotics.
