Let Us Help With Your Foot Or Leg Problem!
Your Local Keysborough Podiatrist since 1998
Was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis and heel pain by my gp and told that shock therapy would help. After googling shock therapy, the Footcare clinic was the closest to me. Went online, made an appointment and met with Ruby Howard. It took quite a few treatments but have now been pain free for several weeks. I work in retail and used to struggle to get through my shift but after seeing Ruby, I'm now breezing through work and then going for walks everyday as well. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ruby and the Footcare clinic.
Have tried other Podiatrists but I have to say that when I started going to The Foot Care Clinic that Kim has been great and really getting to fix my foot issue. Would recommend 100%.
This Footcare Clinic is located behind Parkmore Shopping Centre. Lovely efficient Admin and The Podiatrists are very Professional and make you feel so relaxed. Their follow up work is second to none. Pleasure to go there
How We Can Help
Typically we will see you when things have reached a point where foot pains and injuries need to be treated – so you can regain your freedom of movement and keep doing the things you love doing.
Feet are the first point of contact between your body and the ground. They undergo a lot of wear and tear in a lifetime and, as such, can present a variety of problems.
Some of the foot pain conditions we commonly help with are:
Sports Injuries can highlight an inability for your body to compensate effectively for your level of activity. The podiatrists at The Footcare Clinic are trained to treat all kinds of Sports injuries. Whether it is an acute injury, an injury that is recurring, or an injury that occurred many seasons ago that never seems to go away, you can trust us to get you back on your feet again.
Conditions we treat:
Foot orthoses are shoe inserts designed to support, align, or improve the function of the foot. They are also often commonly referred to as ‘orthotics’. Orthoses fit comfortably inside your shoes. There are many different kinds of orthoses. The orthoses recommended by your podiatrist are prescription devices, custom – made to suit your individual needs and biomechanics (the way your body moves). People of all ages with a variety of foot or lower leg problems wear orthoses.
Sports people are often prescribed orthoses by their podiatrist to help maximise their performance, as well as to address mechanical problems. Anyone suffering from a chronic foot or lower limb condition, which is limiting their mobility or independence, may benefit from wearing orthoses. Your podiatrist may prescribe orthoses for your particular foot problem after a comprehensive assessment, taking into account your own biomechanics, footwear, occupational and lifestyle factors.

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