Each patient that attends the clinic will first have an in-depth initial assessment, taking up to an hour. At this session we can really get to know all about you – what has bought you to the clinic, your current or previous
injuries, future goals and outcome; tell us everything!

Following this, a full assessment will be completed, which may include things such as a musculoskeletal and biomechanical assessment, gait analysis, strength and resistance testing, etc. Your therapist can then put together a detailed treatment plan centred around you.

Don’t worry too much if it’s your first appointment to see us – click Initial Appointment if booking online, or just say you’re new to the clinic when contacting us via phone or email, we will sort the rest! This first session will mainly focus on taking a detailed history and completing a full assessment, but usually we will have time to preform a treatment in this time too, e.g dry needling.

Generally orthotics will need updating between 1-3 years depending on factors such as activities they are worn for, and the material they are made from (see our blog for more information!). We recommend an annual review just to keep a check on how things are going. If there is a recurrence in symptoms, any new symptoms, or the orthotics become too small (children outgrowing them), we recommend making a sooner appointment.

We recommend wearing loose / comfortable clothes / activewear, and also wearing (or bringing along) shorts so we are able to see your legs during the assessment. We recommend bringing your runners or training shoes so we can check these.

Yes! We treat all aspects of routine podiatry including nail cutting, callus and hard skin reduction, corn removal, plantar wart (verruca) treatment, in growing toenail management (and surgery), and fungal nail treatment.

The first appointment can take anywhere up to an hour. Following this, appointment times will usually be 30-40 minutes.

Yes! If you have Private Health Insurance, bring your membership card along with you for your consultation. If you are covered for Podiatry, we will process your claim at the time of billing and there will usually be a gap left to pay. If you don’t bring your card to the session, you will pay for the treatment in full, but we can print/email a copy of the treatment receipt to you which you can then claim yourself through your health fund.

In certain circumstances, you may be able to receive your Podiatry treatment under Medicare. Your GP will need to refer you to a Podiatrist for you to receive a Medicare rebate.
