Experiencing Stubborn Foot and Leg Pain?
Shockwave Therapy is a breakthrough therapy designed to help relieve your pain!
When I first attended The Footcare Clinic my feet were in an extremely poor condition but with the totally professional and knowledgeable team from The Footcare Clinic they were quickly improved. Kim Harwood is my podiatrist and in charge of the clinic. She is always able to respond to whatever complications my feet present with. The clinic is dynamic, with the latest addition of a walking machine to assist with checking conditions or comfort of orthotics etc. I count myself as very fortunate , that my friend, who is also a client recommended The Footcare Clinic to me.

I dropped something heavy on my toe a number of months ago and my nail eventually began to break away. The new nail was growinh back but the old nail just wasn't going to give. It eventually led to a nasty accident that prevented me from being able to go to work. I was unable to find a GP that was going to deal with the issue and decided I needed to see a podiatrist. The Footcare Clinic was very helpful and provided a good service. They dug out the old nail using quality tools to keep damage to my toe, down to a minimum and Will the podiatrist was awesome. Very relaxed and I felt very comfortable putting my situation in his hands. My toe has since begun to heal well with no infections and no pain. Thanks a bunch Will and The Footcare Clinic!! ✌✌

Very impressed with Will. I came in with a fungal infection both on my toenails and the bottom of my foot. He helped get rid of the skin infection and after one round of laser treatment on my toenails, I can see a huge difference. The fungal infection has almost gone away completely. Will didn't mess around with making me come back for unnecessary appointments. Highly recommend to anyone.

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.

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