Common Conditions We Treat:
Osteochondral Defect
This joint ailment can occur when the ankle is sprained. We always consider joint and bone and treat accordingly.
Ligament Injury
Ligament strains or tears are common and cause instability. Our podiatrists work to limit the long term impact.
Fracture
Pain following ankle injury will be prolonged if fractures go undiagnosed. X-ray and MRI imaging is commonplace in our practice.
High Ankle Sprain
There are two bones in the lower leg held together by ligament. In severe ankle sprain this is disrupted.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Could my ankle be broken following a sprain or rolling my ankle?

Yes. Bone, ligaments and tendons are all at risk following an ankle sprain. It can actually be tendons or ligaments that pull sections of bone apart in the ankle (avulsion fracture).

Can I prevent my ankles rolling?

Yes. Certain foot mechanics make the ankle muscles and tendons work very hard. This     causes them to fatigue and less able to protect you from rolling over on your ankle. Ankles that roll in are quite effectively supported with orthotics.

Do I see a podiatrist or a physio for my sprained ankle?

Podiatrists are most skilled at assessing and treating ankle injuries. As podiatrists, our skill set is predominately foot and ankle as opposed to the upper body.

Do I need a referral?

No. Seeing our podiatrists does not require a specific referral. However, on occasion you may be referred under a Chronic Disease Management plan (EPC) which you will need to provide at the time of consultation. Referral from your doctor or specialist is also needed to allow us to fully understand your needs. It is important to understand that your EPC will not cover all of your consultation costs.

How do I pay for my consultation?

Payment is required at the completion of your consultation. We provide both hicaps for your private health fund needs, and we have eftpos facilities to enable this.

I have NDIS funding, can I still make an appointment?

Yes, we have many NDIS patients of various ages and complaints. It is important to understand that we cannot see you without you firstly providing both your current NDIS plan and undertaking a service agreement.
