Senior years: Maintaining mobility
The older you are, the more likely you are to suffer pain in your legs and feet from years of walking and prolonged periods of standing. As we enter our senior years, it is important that we take good care of our feet, so as to limit the possibility of medical problems and to reduce the chance of infections and hospitalisation.
Our Melbourne podiatrists treat a whole range of foot problems from arthritis, diabetes and joint pain (hips, knees, ankles, feet etc.) to ingrown toenail surgery and treatment. By using computer gait analysis we can assess your walking pattern and advise you if your feet would benefit from orthotics to improve foot function. We can also advise you on the correct footwear for ageing feet and preventive foot care, helping you stay mobile and active, longer.
Why your foot care is important
Your feet and lower limbs are largely responsible for your movement, balance and handling your weight. They are often the first part of your body which can indicate a health problem, especially if you are experiencing pain from prolonged periods of standing, walking or running.
At Camberwell Road Podiatry your feet are our priority. From your early steps, through your most active years and onto your senior years, your feet play a vital role in your overall health.
Early years: Developing healthy feet
As a parent, you’ll realise the importance of your child’s feet from their first steps to their busy daily activities. These activities may trigger injury or even alert you to an unusual walking pattern indicating an underlying health problem involving their limbs or feet.
At our Camberwell clinic, we are experienced in children’s podiatry. Our professional foot specialists will perform a thorough history and examination, often involving computer gait analysis, and inform you on the best podiatry care for your child. They can also assess your child’s suitability for orthotics and determine the best orthotic treatment plan for your child.
The variety and choice available in children’s footwear can be overwhelming. You may have concerns about choosing the right type of shoes, runners or sandals. Our paediatric podiatrists will be happy to offer professional advice to help you make the right choice for your children’s feet.
Sports years: Managing running feet
We have a special interest in sports podiatry and vast experience in treating both acute and chronic overuse sporting injuries including:
- Shin splints
- Achilles tendonitis
- Ankle sprains
- Plantar fasciitis
- Stress fractures
These types of injuries need a sports podiatrist’s intervention for corrective treatment, to enable better and safer performance.
Our podiatrists specialise in human biomechanics and use computer gait analysis to help diagnose the cause of sports injuries. We can also accurately assess your running gait and design custom-made orthotic devices for your sports shoes. By improving foot function and lower leg mechanics, custom-made orthotics can help treat and prevent many sporting injuries.
