Sports Podiatry

Sports injuries to the foot and ankle are exceedingly common in sports.

We understand that a sports specific approach is needed to assessing, treating and preventing injury.

Whether your sport involves high impact pivoting and turning (Soccer, football, netball, basketball, tennis) or your sport involves repetitive stress (distance running, triathlon), we will customise a treatment plan to suit your specific sport and training regime.

Some of the treatments for Sports Podiatry related concerns at our clinic may include:

      • Biomechanics and gait analysis with Techscan Mat technology

      • Orthotic therapy

      • Physical therapy

      • Soft tissue and joint manipulation/mobilisation

      • Dry needling

      • Stretching programs

      • Kinetic or functional taping techniques (e.g. Rocktape)

      • Electrophysical treatments (Shockwave therapy, theraputic ultrasound, TENS

         

         

Our experience in Sports Podiatry can assist athletes of all ages and abilities with performance, injury prevention or recovery.

When used correctly these treatment methods will improve strength and function faster then soft-tissue therapy and exercise therapy alone.

We understand that it often takes a team approach to achieve the best outcome so we will commonly work alongside physiotherapists, osteopaths, physical therapists and General Practioners.

This multi disciplinary approach is why our practice has such great results.

Ryan and Cara are both specialists in sports podiatry, so make an appointment to see one of them today.
