In our clinic we treat the most common conditions that occur in your feet such as:
This service involves the examination and assessment of problems relating to abnormal lower limb function. Patients are assessed as a complete structure; particular attention is paid to the lower limb function and its effects on the rest of the body.
This service assesses patients while standing, walking and running, if required, so that a complete picture of lower limb function can be established.
This service, along with a biomechanical assessment, provides necessary information for the evaluation of human walking.
A plantar pressure analysis is designed to provide a visual image of the pressure distribution over the plantar surface of the foot during standing or during single-limb stance and it provides a quick and colorful presentation of high-pressure areas.
Data obtained from a plantar pressure assessment can be used in the evaluation and management of adult and pediatric patients with a wide variety of foot and lower-extremity disorders associated with the neurological, integumentary and musculoskeletal systems. The data provides information regarding the effects of various interventions including use of footwear, use of foot orthoses, gait training and surgical management on forces and pressures applied to specific locations of the foot.
This service is focused to those patients who have been assessed with biomechanical alignment problems, lower limb aches/pains and those who have or have had plantar foot ulcers.
Patients will obtain a customised or custom made in-shoe device which has been precisely designed for their individual requirements. This includes orthoses and lower limb splints/braces. These services are available to patients of all ages.
This service provides patients with the assessment of circulation and sensation in their feet which is particularly important for patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes mellitus.
A vascular examination includes assessment of the large and small blood vessels, toe pressure readings and Doppler studies as required. Sensory tests measure nerve function and include 10g Monofilament and vibration testing.
This service is offered for the treatment of ingrown toenails. Surgery is required when the ingrown nail is severe, or when regular care is difficult or conservative measures have failed.
This procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and involves the removal of all or part of the nail depending on the problem.
The treatment of foot ulcers needs expert care.
Our treatments are based on scientific evidence and are made by a podiatrist with extensive experience in complex ulcer treatment.
We treat children of all ages for conditions such as skew foot, in toeing, flat feet, heel pain, growing pains and other associated foot problems.
When approaching the management of a young patient, three factors steer the treatment protocol: the patient’s age, the presence or absence of pain, and the presence and severity of a biomechanical problem.
Through this service, patients can access a full range of treatments including acupuncture and massage, heat therapy through paraffin baths, joint mobilisation/manipulation and strapping, as well as muscle stretching and strengthening exercise programs.
We provide a full range of services for Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) eligible patients.
All DVA patients require a referral every 12 months from their GP.
Service eligibility is different depending on whether the patient has a gold or white card. If in doubt, please contact the Department of Veterans’ Affairs to discuss your eligibility for services.
Please make sure you bring your DVA card to each visit.
Patients with chronic illnesses including diabetes, arthritis and cardiovascular conditions are eligible for subsidised standard podiatry visits through Medicare.
To be eligible, you must have a Team Care Arrangement (TCA) and Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) referral from your GP. This may involve a longer than normal consultation with your GP, so please advise them about the nature of your visit when making your appointment. Under the EPC plan, patients are entitled to between 1-5 podiatry consultations each year depending on their doctor's recommendations.
PLEASE NOTE: Medicare only covers the consultation fee. The cost of specialised services such as orthotic therapy, biomechanical examination, nail surgery, parafin baths and the cost of products are not covered by Medicare.
WorkCover cases are welcome at Precision Plus Podiatry. Please bring your current referral, case number and case worker’s name in order to start your treatment.
We can provide written reports to your case manager and referring clinician, as well as advice, assessment, and assistance with rehabilitation for work-related lower limb injuries.
