Our Melbourne podiatrists can help you with many different problems including:
- Skin and nail disorders
Skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis, as well as nail problems can affect people of all ages. Common causes of nail problems include injury and infection.
- Corns, calluses, bunions and sore feet
Commonly occurring on the feet, corns and calluses are areas of hard, thickened skin that develop when the skin is exposed to excessive friction or pressure. Bunions, on the other hand, is when the big toe points towards the other toes on the same foot, forcing the foot bone to stick outwards.
- Toenail problems
A common toenail problem includes ingrown toenails, caused by improper trimming, shoe pressure or repeated trauma to the foot, from regular activities. Other problems also include thickened nails, due to the result of injury to the nailbed, and fungal infections.
- Flat feet
Flat feet refers to a condition where your feet arches are very low, almost to the point where they flatten excessively. This condition places added strain on muscles and ligaments, and can possibly lead to sore and tired feet and legs.
- Children’s feet
Children’s feet are more flexible, therefore, conditions detected early can be treated more easily. Having a children’s podiatrist inspect your children’s feet periodically helps to avoid more problems later in life.
- Diabetes foot checks
Having a Melbourne podiatrist carry out an easy and painless check on your feet can help to determine whether you have a low or high risk of developing serious problems. For patients who experience normal sensations and a good blood flow in their feet, can be identified as low risk.
- Poor circulation
Circulation problems can occur when there is a hardening or narrowing of arteries as they gradually clog up. If you have diabetes, it is vital that you get your foot checked, as poor blood circulation may affect blood supply to your feet.
- Advice on shoes and foot care
Our Melbourne podiatrists will share valuable tips and knowledge so that your foot health is maintained for years to come.
- Insole and orthotic prescription
Prescription orthotics are insoles developed and custom made for your feet. This can improve your posture, comfort and your performance.

When children are born, their feet have a lot of growing to do as they progress through childhood. While it’s common for children to experience pain in their feet, it is not something that should be ignored. As they grow, they can be faced with a number of foot problems that affect lower leg mechanics. In certain situations, these issues will correct themselves with time, whilst others need to be treated early for the most effective results. It is essential to maintain healthy feet in children to help them explore, play and move around, whilst also have a happy and fulfilling childhood.
If your child is suffering from any lower leg symptoms, has poor posture and stability, you can schedule a consultation with our Melbourne children’s podiatrist. Treatment options for children’s feet vary but may include orthotics, stretching and strengthening. At our podiatry clinic in Melbourne, our foot doctors will help to consult, diagnose and provide the successful treatment of your child’s foot problems.
