Who Do We Treat?


Kids are always growing and changing, but that doesn’t mean they should be in pain. If you’re worried about your kids feet, their development or anything unusual you’ve noticed, you’ve come to the perfect place.


If you’re active, your muscles will regularly be working overtime to support large forces through your bones, joints, muscles and ligaments and keep you performing at your best. We work with you to optimise your performance, minimise the risk of injury and keep your feet and legs healthy and happy.


Working on your feet all day and on hard surfaces can have a massive toll on your feet and leave muscles sore and tired. We work with you to reduce the strain on your feet and ensure you have the right support to keep you going comfortably all week.

55 plus

As we age, the lifetime we have spent active on our feet begins to catch up with us and our feet need that extra bit of care to keep them comfortable, healthy, and performing at their best. We help keep you doing the things you love at any age!

Problems We Solve

  • Athlete’s Foot (Tinea Pedis)

    Athlete’s Foot (Tinea Pedis)

    Athlete’s Foot, clinically known as Tinea Pedis, occurs when fungi grow on the feet and cause a skin infection. It is a common condition among athletes and children, but it can affect anyone.

  • Blisters


    Those who walk or run long distances are no strangers to foot blisters. When the foot intensely and repeatedly rubs up against the inside of the shoe, a blister can form.

  • Achilles Tendonitis

    Achilles Tendonitis

    This term simply refers to the inflammation of your Achilles tendon - the cord-like tendon that joins your calf muscles to the back of your heel bone.

  • Callus


    Calluses are hard, thickened areas of skin that are generally not painful and don’t require treatment unless they are uncomfortable, painful, or limit your ability to comfortably wear shoes.

  • Ankle Pain - Ankle Sprain

    Ankle Pain - Ankle Sprain

    Ankle pain due to ankle sprains is unfortunately very common - and incredibly painful! It doesn’t discriminate between adults and kids and stops you from getting out and doing the activities you love.

  • Corns


    Clinically known as Heloma Durum, corns are common foot conditions that occur from repeated focal pressure on the foot, such as rubbing of the skin against a shoe, wearing no socks with shoes, or foot deformities.

  • Foot and Ankle Pain

    Foot and Ankle Pain

    Pain is not a normal part of life and shouldn’t be put up with or walked through. Pain is our body’s way of letting us know that something is wrong or isn’t working properly.

  • Ingrown Toenails

    Ingrown Toenails

    Suffering from ingrown toenails is a painful and frustrating ordeal. An ingrown toenail simply means that the nail edge has penetrated and grown into the surrounding skin.

  • Bunions (Hallux Abducto Valgus)

    Bunions (Hallux Abducto Valgus)

    If there’s a big bony bump at your big toe joint that may rub against the sides of your foot and cause redness, blisters or pain, then you may have a bunion. You’ll also likely struggle to fit into narrow footwear.

  • Diabetes


    Diabetes has a large impact on your feet. If you have diabetes, there is a serious risk for developing an infection and ulceration if care is not taken.

  • Fungal Nail Infection

    Fungal Nail Infection

    If you’ve been noticing changes in the colour, thickness, flakiness or odour in your nails, there’s a good chance you may have picked up a fungal nail infection. This is clinically referred to as Onychomycosis.

  • Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction & Flexible Flatfoot

    Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction & Flexible Flatfoot

    Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (PTTD) and Flexible Flatfoot are conditions that may cause the flattening of the arches. People with this foot posture often describe their feet as ‘rolled in’.

  • Foot Odour

    Foot Odour

    Many adults and children suffer from odorous feet. Excessive sweating causing bacterial growth is often the main cause for foot odour but it can also occur from fungal infections.

  • Gout


    If you have gout or know someone that does, you’ll know how excruciatingly painful it can get when you have an ‘attack’ or ‘flare up’ of gout. Gout is a type of arthritis and this can often be confused with the ‘wear and tear’ arthritis we often see - Osteoarthritis.

  • Plantar Fasciitis

    Plantar Fasciitis

    If you’re experiencing a sharp, stabbing pain first thing in the morning as you step onto the ground, and through the day after a rest, then there’s a chance you may have plantar fasciitis.

  • Sesamoiditis


    Sesamoiditis is a common cause of pain at the big toe joint and describes the inflammation around two small bones that are located beneath that joint, aptly named the sesamoids.

  • Sever’s Disease (kids heel pain)

    Sever’s Disease (kids heel pain)

    Before you start to worry, rest assured. Sever’s disease is not an actual disease but a painful condition that will resolve. Clinically referred to as Calcaneal Apophysitis, Sever’s has often been referred to as ‘growing pains’, though this does not describe how and why the pain occurs.

  • Abductor Hallucis Tendinopathy

    Abductor Hallucis Tendinopathy

    If you’re getting pain at the bottom of your heel that’s worst first thing in the morning and on standing after rest, a lot of sources will tell you that you’re likely to have plantar fasciitis.

  • Hammer Toes

    Hammer Toes

    Beginning as a slight deformity of the toe, hammertoes are little toes that bend at the end joint. This most commonly occurs to the second toe. You’ll notice them because they look like they’re starting to curl downwards.

  • Kid’s Warning Signs

    Kid’s Warning Signs

    It feels like you’re watching your kids grow and change before your eyes every day. With many changes being a regular part of growth and development . . .

  • Neuropathy


    Peripheral neuropathy is the most common form of neuropathy affecting the peripheral nerves of the feet. Damage to peripheral nerves can alter the ability to sense pain or temperature and may affect muscle control.

  • Warts (Verrucae)

    Warts (Verrucae)

    Plantar warts, clinically known as Verrucae, are warts that appear anywhere on the foot. A wart is an area of tissue that appears thickened, raised, and is normally circular.

  • Claw Toes

    Claw Toes

    Claw toes are a toe deformity similar to a hammertoe but with a few distinguishable differences. Claw toes, like hammertoes, describe the bent position of the toes that looks like the toe is curling down.

  • Cracked Heels

    Cracked Heels

    Early stages of fissures on the feet, particularly the heel, involve the splitting of the skin to produce cracks. It is the hard, callused outer skin layer (epidermis) that cracks.

  • Heel Spur

    Heel Spur

    It’s not uncommon for us to see patients complaining of pain from heel spurs. They often describe a sharp pain at the bottom of their foot with each step that feels like a ‘sharp knife’.

  • Peripheral Vascular Disease

    Peripheral Vascular Disease

    Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) is an arterial disease causing a reduced blood supply to parts of the body, which in this case are the feet and legs.

  • ‘W’ Sitting

    ‘W’ Sitting

    If you look front on when your little one is sitting like this, their legs form a ‘W’. If you’re thinking ‘but my child does that all the time’, don’t be alarmed.

  • Haglund’s Deformity (Pump Bump)

    Haglund’s Deformity (Pump Bump)

    Haglund’s deformity is also known as the Bauer Bump, Pump Bump and Retrocalcaneal Bursitis. Haglund’s deformity is a bony enlargement (bump) at the back of the heel bone.

  • Kids Shoes & Pain

    Kids Shoes & Pain

    One of the things that I find on a regular basis is children presenting with calcaneal traction apophysitis - AKA Sever’s Disease - wearing ‘cheap sneakers’.

  • Metatarsalgia


    Metatarsalgia describes pain and inflammation in the ball of the foot, and is a common symptom of several foot conditions. Injuries to the ball of the foot occur frequently in athletes who perform activities that put high-impact stress on the forefront of the foot.

  • Pregnancy and the Feet

    Pregnancy and the Feet

    The load on the feet increases dramatically due to normal weight gain and postural changes associated with pregnancy. This sometimes coincides with swelling of the feet and ankles which may limit footwear choices.

  • Shin Splints (Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome)

    Shin Splints (Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome)

    Clinically referred to as medial tibial stress syndrome, shin splints describe pain that develops at the front of the shin bone (tibia). It’s caused by excess stress and strain to the shins which may occur in multiple ways.

  • Thickened toenails (Onychauxis)

    Thickened toenails (Onychauxis)

    If you’ve noticed your toenails starting to change over time and thicken, put more pressure on the surrounding skin or rub against the top of the shoe, then it sounds like you could have Onychauxis.

    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. We commonly use dry needling in the calves, legs and feet - and generally anywhere.
