Video Gait Analysis

State-of-the-art computerised technology allows us to highlight walking and running abnormalities contributing to, or causing their condition or injury.

Laser Orthotics

We prescribe and fit orthoses using a 3D computerised laser scanner. Laser scan orthoses are specifically designed to mould to the individual contours of your foot and restore your alignment.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) involves applying high-energy acoustic waves to specific areas of the body to stimulate the healing process. Regularly used to treat heel pain (Plantar Fasciitis), shin pain, Achilles tendonitis and a range of other muscular injuries.

Foot & Nail Care

From routine foot and nail care through to diabetic assessments, we can effectively diagnose, manage and treat a complete range of conditions and injuries.

Nail Bracing

We attach corrective nail braces to the nail or fastened below the nail rim for ingrown and involuted nails. The brace slightly lifts the nail rim, alleviating pressure on the surrounding tissue.

Nail Surgery (Ingrown Toenails & Nail Removal)

We carefully conduct nail surgery to remove the part of the impinging nail. If the problem continues to re-occur and cause pain, a permanent nail removal procedure can be performed to prevent re-growth of the painful nail.

Foot Manipulation/Mobilisation

Long-term solutions for improving the function and flexibility of your joints for more efficient muscle movement. We regularly incorporate this type of treatment for biomechanical malalignment, as we believe a permanent resolution to an injury or condition is much better than a short-term quick fix.

Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point therapy to relax and release muscle shortness and tightness. We will organise a treatment plan consisting of 30–50 minute sessions. Gentle pressure is applied to the area to help release tension.

Childrens Services

Diabetes Foot Assessment

With regular foot reviews, footwear inspections and education, many common foot problems associated with diabetes can be prevented. We provide thorough assessment of the blood and nerve supply to the feet and legs in people with diabetes. If you have diabetes you should see a podiatrist annually.

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy (similar to dry ice treatment) is a safe, effective and quick treatment for plantar warts.

Doppler Ultrasound

Used to assess the blood flow in the feet and toes. This is important for people with diabetes or circulation problems.

Work Cover

Have you been injured in a work or motor vehicle accident?

Is you work supplied footwear causing you problems?

Does you job involve excessive standing/ walking activities leading to overuse injuries?

Alice Springs has developed working relationships with many work cover and motor vehicle accident insurers (TIO, QBE, CCI, MACA, Gallagher Bassett & more) to assess and treat clients who require podiatry care as a result of their injury.

How do I make an appointment to see a Podiatrist under Workcover?

You will need a referral from your GP/Doctor/Specialist or work cover insurer to see a podiatrist for a work cover consultation. Prior to your first consultation, please provide details of your insurers, case manager and claim number to our administration staff so we can obtain all relevant documentation pertaining to your case history. We look forward to assisting your return to work and normal daily activities.
