We don’t claim to be perfect but we don’t get many complaints (except by other local health professionals about our website….LOL!) about our service. We will always aim to get you back to the activity you love as soon as possible, and provide you with an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan, including other congruent treatments from health professionals we respect and trust.
If we think your problem is beyond the scope of sports podiatry, we will tell you and then refer you to the correct specialist who we think can help you. Frequently, surgeons who have borderline cases will refer patients to try orthotics first to see if surgery can be avoided or postponed until the problem is unmanageable.
To put it bluntly, we won’t prescribe orthotics to any patients if we think there’s another treatment or a better way. If we are unsure if orthotics will help, there are several trial measures than can be implemented for the patient to test before they decide to proceed. Please ask us about this if you are tentative.
SHIN & KNEE PAIN
Get it done right the first time
Whether you are a runner, walker, footballer or netballer, the foot experts at Sydney Sports Podiatry are here to help you get back to the activity you love sooner!
We do this by performing one of Australia’s most detailed Biomechanical Assessments (walking/running video-gait analysis) to find the cause of your problems. Coupled with 27 years of experience we treat the cause of your problem, not just Band-Aid the symptoms.
Frequently we are seen by patients looking for a second opinion, and nearly all of these patients have commented how detailed and effective we are compared to previous treatments they’ve had.
Take the first step in living a more healthy and mobile life.
During the assessment, we gather a detailed history to address your concerns, injuries, activity level, footwear, and treatment goals, with some patients benefiting from injury prevention advice and performance enhancement strategies such as evaluating footwear options, recommending shoe inserts (orthotics) to alleviate pain and modify movement mechanics, and providing appropriate foot and leg stretching and strengthening exercises.
Our comprehensive diagnostic processes, which incorporate our advanced video-based Digital Gait Assessment, efficiently identify the causes of symptoms, offer potential mitigation strategies, propose suitable treatments, and provide solutions for associated problems in cases involving injuries, pain, or other issues.
Our skilled podiatrists offer expert guidance and treatment for foot and ankle disorders, including skin and nail conditions, address biomechanical factors contributing to pain in the back, hip, knee, leg, ankle, and foot, provide flexible or semi-rigid corrective foot orthotics, design tailored stretching and strengthening programs, and offer personalized advice on running shoes, football boots, and other athletic footwear.
