Running Retraining & Rehab

At The Footcare Clinic, our Podiatrists are runners themselves and have a special interest in running mechanics. As podiatrists, we will assess your running technique using video analysis. This technology allows us to identify the specific factors which will help to settle your current injury, reduce the risk of future injury and improve your efficiency – as part of reducing fatigue and improving speed.

We look forward to working with you to achieve your short and long-term goals in running and fitness, helping you to move well and stay active!

To help you, we will assess and manage the following factors, each specific to your injury, your goals, your ability and your conditioning

Foot strike pattern
Foot, knee, hip, core and trunk position
Adjunct strengthening exercises
Footwear modification to manage injuries & performance

What to expect in your consult?

We know your time is valuable and true to our values of respecting everybody we strive to always run on time.

Prior to your appointment you will receive an email with a link to complete your client forms online. If you prefer to do it in person we would appreciate that you arrive 10 mins earlier to allow time for registration and to make things run smoothly.

On arrival, you’ll be welcomed with a smile! You’ll meet your podiatrist, who will listen to your history, work with you to perform a thorough assessment and begin treatment to get to the bottom of your concerns.

We’ll stay in touch by sending personal emails or SMS (not bulk spam), and also ask for feedback after your appointments so we can continue to improve our service to you.

Do I need a referral?

No, you do not need a referral to see a Podiatrist. The only time you’ll need a referral is if you qualify for the Medicare funded Chronic Management Care Plan or if you’re a War Veteran with a Gold Card.

Can I get to see a Podiatrist today?

Our Podiatrists are very popular so we can’t guarantee an appointment on the same day but we’ll do our best to make it happen if you contact us by phone.

How long is a consultation?

We allow 40 mins for all initial consultations. This extended time will allow our Podiatrists to meet you, assess you and give you a management plan and treatment. Our subsequent appointments are generally 20 mins in duration.

Can a Podiatrist organise my x-rays?

Yes, Podiatrists can refer for x-rays, ultrasounds and MRIs.

Do you accept all private health funds?

We accept all private health funds. With our HICAPS terminal, you’ll be able to claim on the spot!

Is Podiatry a bulk billing service?

No, however we are registered with Medicare who will contribute $52.95 towards your appointment fee if you have a GP referral under the Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) plan. You just pay the difference, that’s all. Your doctor (GP) can refer you for up to 5 sessions in a year for chronic conditions such as Diabetes.
