Our Podiatrist is Here!
We’re excited to welcome our first Podiatrist to Dynamic Physio! Whether you’re dealing with running related musculoskeletal issues or lower body pain, the Dynamic Physio team is here to help.
What can a Podiatrist help with?
Podiatrists main goal is to get you back on your feet! At Dynamic Physio we will be offering the following services:
- General Podiatry and footcare
- Sports podiatry
- Children’s General Podiatry and Footcare
Your feet are under pressure from literally carrying you around all day. The stress from exercising and squeezing your feet into shoes can create issues, such as painful corns, and callouses. We provide footcare for this and more.
Prevention is always better than cure, so we encourage you to get assessed and treated before it gets too painful.
Our podiatrists have the knowledge and skillsets in lower limb biomechanics, injuries, and rehabilitation.
A biomechanical podiatrist examines the way your lower limbs work and checks for any abnormalities and potential causes of pain in the foot, ankle, knee, and back.
We can attend to injuries that could be caused from everyday life, sports, or work. Common podiatry conditions can include, but not be limited to:
- Achillies tendinitis
- Ball of foot pain
- Flat feet
- Foot arch pain
- Heel pain
- Heel spurs
- High foot arches
- Mortons neuroma
- Planter fasciitis
- Posterior tibial tendonitis
- Shin splints.
Foot and leg biomechanics involve evaluating the structure, alignment and the function of the lower limbs while standing and walking.
A Biomechanical Assessment can include:
- Alignment of the foot, ankle, knee, and leg
- Visual gait analysis
- Joint flexibility
- Muscle strength testing
- Balance and stability.
Once assessed, the podiatrist can diagnose and create a tailed treatment for you so that you can get back to what you love doing.
Orthotics and Footwear
A foot orthotic is a medical device that you insert in your shoes to relieve foot pain and help with foot posture.
During your appointment, the podiatrist will assess your foot and leg mechanics that are contributing to your injury, pain or imbalance. A custom-made orthotic can then be prescribed in conjunction with an individualised strength and rehabilitation plan.
- Custom orthotics for running and exercising
- Custom ¾ device orthotics for work/corporate shoes
- Customisation of prefabricated orthotics
- Footwear modification
We can also look at your current footwear and give you advice on specific attributes to look for when purchasing shoes.
Children’s feet are different to adults’ feet as they are not fully formed yet. In fact, the final bone in the foot does not start to form from cartilage until 3 years of age! Children’s foot is still flexible so they can easily get damaged.
Our podiatrist can help with your child’s following conditions:
- Heel pain (Severs Disease)
- Growing pains
- “Knock Knees” (Genu Valgum)
- Uneven wearing of shoes
- Post sports injury pain
- Tired and sore legs/feet.
