Experiencing Stubborn Foot and Leg Pain?
Shockwave Therapy is a breakthrough therapy designed to help relieve your pain!
Saw Ngan (Kim) today at the foot are clinic. She was super thorough, knowledgeable and experienced. I've had pain in my foot for a little while and thought it will just pass but it didn't. after a few tests Kim was able to tell that my muscle was inflamed and had an action plan all ready for my way to recovery. Highly recommended.
I am very happy with the service provided by the Footcare Clinic. Ruby is always doing a great job taking care of my feet. Thank you very much
I seen my podiatrist Will Kennedy for the first time on Wednesday, 13 January 2020. This was my first time seeing a podiatrist. I had recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Everyone at the clinic was helpful welcoming and friendly. Not only did Will put me at ease on arrival, he went through all the steps he was going to do in my treatment and provided me with individualised advice in managing my condition. I was never rushed through my appointment and given the time to discuss any of my concerns. Will has made me feel more confident and in control of my diabetes and educated me about the importance of diabetic foot care. I would recommend this clinic to anyone for any type of care that you require.
What Is Shockwave Therapy & How Can It Help?
Shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a progressive treatment option used to help with chronic conditions which affect all parts of the body. Radial shockwaves are high-energy acoustic waves passed on from a handpiece held against the skin and dissipated outwards to painful spots into the underlying tissues. The energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissue.
