Ten Services You Didn’t Know Were Available Right Here In Toowoomba
We love our community here in Toowoomba. Everyone is lovely, friendly, supportive and it feels like there’s a smile around every corner (well there certainly is here at The Podiatrist!). With just under 107,000 current residents, Toowoomba is far from a ‘small town’ - and neither are the services and specialities we offer here. From day dot, our goal was to bring World Class locally, as it should be. And we’ve done just that! So here are ten world-class services that are changing the lives of thousands of our patients every year!
1. Shockwave Therapy
Shockwave works on a microscopic level, causing interstitial and extracellular biological responses, tissue regeneration and even neurovascularization (the formation of new nerve and blood vessels). It has even proven to be successful in treating stress fractures and other bone damage.
2. Body Flow
Imagine, as a practitioner, seeing patients for years that have difficult-to-heal foot and leg ulcers that are complicated by diabetes and being able to do little to help. Now, imagine discovering a Body Flow circulation machine that was then able to complete heal one of these ulcers in a way that you’ve never seen before - or even thought was possible. This is what the Body Flow is to us and why we had to have it.
3. Solestar Cycling Orthotics + Assessment
4. Lunula Laser
5. Custom Orthotics in 90 Minutes
6. Athlete-Grade Gait Analysis
7. Gait Retraining
Following on from the Zebris analysis, we can then work with you to retrain your gait - the way you walk and move - to greatly improve your function. We go through your technique and show you what’s going on, your inefficiencies, and how we can improve performance and decrease unnecessary energy exertion.
8. Podiatric Dry Needling
Dry needling is a great technique we utilise to address tightness and restrictions in muscles. It’s great for localised pain, where we use fine needles to release painful knots present in muscle and loosen tight structures. The effects produced can even replace a session of massage!
9. Specialist Children’s Podiatry
Kids are always growing and changing - but that doesn’t mean they should be in pain. This is exactly why this is one of our specialities! If you’re worried about your kid's feet, then this is the perfect place.
From developmental problems to strength, stability, posture, movement and growing pains, we conduct thorough paediatric examinations to get to the root of the problem and find the best treatment to keep them happy and healthy for the years to come.
Thankfully, because kids feet are still growing and changing, they respond very well and quickly to treatment and rehabilitation and we get great results!
10. Post-Surgical Rehabilitation
Recovering from surgery can be tough. Your movement is restricted, your strength is reduced, it can be painful and you may not know what to expect and what’s normal! This is why we work with you to make sure you get the best outcomes following surgery with as minimal pain as possible. More than that, we also look to prevent any post-surgical complications where possible, like pain developing in the opposite leg, and know the warning signs to look out for.
It’s a long list but it doesn’t end there! We’re always looking for innovative and dynamic ways to give our patients the best care right here in Toowoomba. For more information about any of these services or to book online, give our expert team a call on 07 4638 3022 or book online here.
