Podiatry is devoted to the assessment, treatment and management of the foot, ankle and lower limb.
Our specialist staff work towards the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of a variety of conditions. Particularly, this includes sport, bone and joint disorders like flat feet and arthritis. In addition, podiatrists treat muscle, tendon and ligament issues. Finally in rare cases our podiatrists can refer for surgical opinion if required.
In a typical consult, our Essendon podiatrist team will assess your foot, ankle and leg range of motion, strength, walking and, if need be, running gait.
Subsequently, we will ask about your lifestyle and activity levels – because at MCAP we treat you as a whole person.
Following this, we may need to refer ultrasound or x-ray if your condition requires a more in-depth assessment.
Above all, we focus on cutting edge treatment to allow you to perform at your peak.
Orthotics are not prescribed as often as you think. Our podiatrists will only suggest orthotics if absolutely necessary. Furthermore, they will often start you off with a prefabricated orthotic to see how your foot responds. If you have any questions at all, our Essendon podiatrist team are happy to answer them. We pride ourselves on being open and honest with our patients.
