Melbourne Podiatrist is one of the most comprehensive and progressive foot clinics available. The practice provides preventative care and treats an array of injuries, skin conditions and nail problems. Feet are responsible for bearing the weight of the entire body and modern work and play environments are hard on feet. High heels, ill-fitting footwear and injuries all contribute to foot problems that can be treated at the practice.
Children have special foot related needs that need to be addressed to prevent problems that can plague them later in life. The professionals at Melbourne Podiatry treat a range of children’s foot conditions and alignment issues. The clinic has solutions for those with flat feet, deformities, injuries and problems standing or walking.
Orthotics can be prescribed for children or adults to provide support, ease pain and treat alignment issues. The devices are effective in realigning feet and ankle bones into normal positions. Pain that displays in the ankles, shin, heel and lower back may originate in the feet. Custom orthotics provides patients with a comfortable and discreet means of correcting a variety of problems.
Sports and recreational activities to stay health and fit have led to an increase in fractures, tendonitis, sprains and numerous joint problems. The practice treats fractures, injuries arising from overuse and offers in-depth biomechanical analysis for performance enhancement. Patients can easily discover if they have potential problems or are at special risk by participating in their chosen activities.
Shockwave therapy utilizes sound waves to stimulate the body’s own healing abilities. It can be prescribed for treatment of injuries and rehabilitation needs. The method helps accelerate the healing process and has a sustained analgesic effect for pain relief. Shockwave therapy helps strength bone and aids in the repair of soft tissue.
