Glenelg Podiatry Clinic

Caring for young feet

Many adult foot problems have their origins in childhood, an assessment of the child's feet, posture and function is an important step in preventing future problems.

Gait analysis

We use state-of-the-art computerised video gait analysis equipment to more accurately assess and diagnose the feet and lower limbs when walking and running.

Orthotic therapy

Our orthotics are computer aided in design and manufacturing, utilising Scan Any-3D equipment and software for ultimate accuracy and comfort. We fabricate both soft and firm orthotics, offering maximum control and comfort for all foot types and shoes including fashion conscious footwear.

Sports injuries

Injuries in the foot and lower limb could be overuse injury caused by malalignment in your body. Conditions associated with this are heel pain, ankle sprain, achilles tendinitis, shin splints, knee, hip and lower back pain. Our treatment can involve electro-physical therapy, footwear advice and orthotics.

Diabetic care

Poor blood flow and loss of sensation in the feet makes skin more vulnerable to breakdown and delayed healing. This could result in foot ulcers and serious complications. Regular Diabetic foot assessment including measuring blood flow and pulse rate using Doppler ultrasound and identifying early changes in nerve competency is recommended for preventative care.

Arthritic care

Osteoarthritis is the most common degenerative joint disease. Ageing often brings on the painful breakdown of cartilage causing stiffness, pain and loss of joint movement. Rheumatoid arthritis is a complex inflammatory disease where a faulty immune system attacks the cartilage of the joints leaving them swollen, painful and stiff.

We can provide pain relief for these conditions with electro-physical therapy, correct footwear advice, soft-orthotics and palliative care. Our treatment improves foot function, aiding mobility and comfort, while protecting skin and other tissues from damage.
