Frequently Asked Questions:
Is a podiatrist skilled at assessing my knee?

Our podiatrists perform complete orthopaedic assessments of the knee, providing clear diagnosis and treatment.

How can a podiatrists help with knee pain?

The knee moves in many directions, which we call planes. Supporting specific parts of the foot controls unwanted or excessive movements of the knee and leg. Put simply, abnormal twisting movement and movement front to back or side to side can be prevented to reduce stress on the knee.

What can prevent me getting knee pain while running?

Controlling movement, particularly internal rotation, ensures better alignment of the knee during running. This acts as a preventative measure during both training and racing.

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.
