Having an onsite lab at Footpoint allows us to customise your shoes as part of your treatment plan. For example, for those with considerable leg length discrepancies we are able to add a raise to the exterior (midsole) of the shoes.
Our skilled technicians are able to customise the raise to any height, blending it with the footwear so it looks like part of the original shoe. This option is far more comfortable and practical than an internal heel raise, which may cause heel irritation and only compensate a fraction of the discrepancy.
This service can be completed within 48 hours of dropping off your shoes.Enquire Today

Prolotherapy is the non surgical solution to chronic and acute pain and injuries. Prolotherapy is designed to repair weakened tendon, ligament and other soft tissue structures in the body which can be causes of intermittent or ongoing chronic musculoskeletal pain.
Prolotherapy works by injecting a natural irritant (dextrose) into and around a joint, tendon, muscle or ligament causing a purposeful, mild inflammation response near damaged tissue which helps new tissues grow. If you are suffering from chronic or acute joint pain, torn ligaments, tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, neuromas, pain as a result of an accident or heel pain, Prolotherapy can be an effective solution.
In one Prolotherapy session you may receive between 4-10 injections depending on the condition being treated. 4-6 sessions may be required over a period of 3-6 months.

Even sitting in an awkward position or lying on your side for a prolonged period can cause temporary hip pain.

As we get older we are at higher risk of developing arthritis. This is because joints wear down over time, we lose the smooth “cushioning” cartilage on the inside of the joint. Then your bones start to rub and wear against each other, yikes.

Careful examination of the foot and ankle by one of our Podiatrists can determine if you have Osteoarthritis. They will take a thorough history and look for

Sever’s disease (also known as calcaneal apophysitis) is a type of bony injury where the growth plate at the back of the heel bone becomes inflamed and causes pain.

Sesamoid bones are curious things. Rather than being connected to other bones forming a joint, they are connected to muscles by tendons. The largest sesamoid bone in the body is the kneecap, also known as the patella. Did you know there are also tiny sesamoid bones in your foot too? Lets talk about them today, as they can become inflamed and painful, a condition known as Sesamoiditis.
Diagnosing Sesamoiditis starts with taking a thorough history and examination of your foot. Sesamoiditis usually occurs from overuse of the tendons around the sesamoids; activites such as running, basketball, ballet and any activity that require a lot of pressure to be placed on the ball of the foot place you at higher risk. Common signs and symptoms include:

Flat Feet is determined by the arch of the foot displaying as low or flat. Flat feet can be seen in one or both feet.
Often people inherit flat feet, however flat feet can be evident from overuse, incorrect footwear, surgery, injury, arthritis, obesity and ageing or caused from conditions that affect nerves and muscles. It is normal for children to have flat feet until the age of approximately 6 when they become less flexible.
Flat feet may cause pain when standing or exercising in the feet, back and legs and create further problems with ankles.
At Footpoint Podiatry we have the latest technology to assess our patient's by performing a Biomechanical Assessment. We record and analyse the data aquired during the assessment and are able to accurately assess foot pressure distribution and study walking patterns.

The Achilles tendon is the thickest tendon in the body connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone. It is the most commonly ruptured tendon, usually as a result of a sports injury. There are 2 conditions that affect the Achilles tendon. One is known as Achilles Tendonitis and the other, Achilles Tendinosis. Inflammation of the Achilles tendon is common in both professional and weekend athletes as well as those who spend a large amount of time on their feet for work or other recreational activities. Achilles pain is typically developed due to an overuse injury that starts out with a very small amount of damage and gradually gets worse with overuse.
Treatment of these conditions are tailored individually and specific to patient's needs. We strongly recommend you seek treatment early for a better prognosis and more rapid recovery time.

Here at Footpoint our Podiatrists are trained at treating a wide range of foot and leg complaints, including childhood conditions. We work together with parents and children to find the root cause of the problem and put in place a treatment plan to ensure best outcome results. We find long term solutions for children are best achieved by regular checkups and education. Our advanced technology allows us to perform gait analysis that is recorded in our patient's file and examined during the course of the treatment to clinically and accurately assess your child's progress.
If you notice your child has hypermobility, in toeing, flat feet, inward rolling feet, balance problems, heel, knee, hip or foot pain, toe walking or tired aching feet and legs we recommend our gait analysis assessment and potentially orthotic therapy.
Children are often treated for ingrown toe nails, which may simply require a short appointment or possible in clinic surgery to remove a part of the nail.
Two of the most common childhood conditions are the irritation of the growth plates (most commonly at the back of the heel or front of the knee) from the pulling of tight muscles in active kids and night bone pain and muscle cramps. Irritation of the growth plate and night pains are specific to children but should be investigated by your podiatrist when they arise to appropriately diagnosed and treat the condition.
We believe in preventative methods for injuries and recommend children have an annual checkup prior to the start of the school year to assess walking patterns, foot positioning and wear on shoes. By bringing your child in for an assessment we can work on any potential problems that may occur if left untreated.

Warts typically occur in children and adolescents and are most commonly located on the sole of the foot. In children 50% of warts will self-resolve within 6 months and 90% within 2 years. Warts can be pesky and hang around for longer than wanted, they do this because they sit happily in the skin without detection from the body’s natural immune system.
There are many treatments for warts and they all have one thing in common; they irritate the wart tissue and trigger the body’s natural immune system to recognise the wart and eradicate it. Your podiatrist has the tools available to safely and topically aid in the eradication of the wart tissue.
