Problems We Solve

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury (ACL)

    Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury (ACL)

    Your anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is located in the knee joint and connects to the tibia (shin bone) and the femur (thigh bone). It crosses diagonally with the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) to control the backward and forward movement at the joint. It stops the tibia from sliding forwards on the femur.
  • 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. Blisters are puffy, fluid-filled pockets that occur in the top layer of the skin. They occur after the skin gets damaged as to protect the skin and promote healing of the injured area.
  • Bunionette (Tailor’s Bunion)

    Bunionette (Tailor’s Bunion)

    A bunionette is a bony bump that develops on the side of the little (fifth) toe at the ball of the foot. It is very similar to bunions, which are more common and occur at the big toe, apart from their location on the outside of the foot and the involvement of a smaller joint.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Compartment Syndrome (Acute and Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome)

    Compartment Syndrome (Acute and Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome)

    Compartment syndrome occurs from increased pressure in a muscle compartment. The muscles of the legs are separated into compartments and are surrounded by a connective tissue (fascia).
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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’.

  • Iliotibial Band Syndrome

    Iliotibial Band Syndrome

    Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS) describes damage to the iliotibial band (ITB) where it crosses the outside of the knee.
  • In-Toeing


    In-toeing describes the position where the feet are turned inwards to face one another and is often coined as being ‘pigeon-toed’.
  • 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.

  • Joint Hypermobility Syndrome

    Joint Hypermobility Syndrome

    This is often coined as being ‘double jointed’ or just very flexible, without putting in the months of stretching beforehand.
  • 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’.

  • 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 . . .

  • Knock Knees (Genu Valgum)

    Knock Knees (Genu Valgum)

    ‘Knock knees’ describes the positioning of the knees where they turn in towards toward each other. This means that they’re prone to ‘knocking’ or brushing against each other during walking.
  • Lateral Collateral Ligament Injury (LCL)

    Lateral Collateral Ligament Injury (LCL)

    Your lateral collateral ligament (LCL) is a narrow and strong ligament on the outside (lateral aspect) of the knee. It attaches to the top of the shin bone (tibia) to the bottom of the thigh bone (femur) at the knee. It resists forces and impact to the inside of the knee (varus forces).
  • Medial Collateral Ligament Injury (MCL)

    Medial Collateral Ligament Injury (MCL)

    Your medial collateral ligament (MCL) is a large flat ligament band on the inner side of the knee joint. It attaches to the top of the shin bone (tibia) to the bottom of the thigh bone (femur), working to support and stabilise the knee.
  • 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.

  • Metatarsus Adductus (Metatarsus Varus)

    Metatarsus Adductus (Metatarsus Varus)

    ‘Metatarsus adductus’ describes the shape and structure of the foot that resembles the letter ‘‘C’ due to the front half of the foot (toes and midfoot) turning onto the back half of the foot. Simply with your heels pointing straight ahead your toes bend towards one another.
  • Osteoarthritis


    Osteoarthritis is the ‘wear and tear’ arthritis that affects people as they age. Here in Australia, it is the most common type of arthritis, affecting 1 in 11 of us, and is the predominant condition that leads to knee and hip replacement surgeries.

  • Out-Toeing


    Out-toeing describes the outwardly turned position of the feet that is coined as ‘duck feet’.
  • Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (Runner’s Knee)

    Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (Runner’s Knee)

    PFPS is a painful condition affecting the knee that will affect 25% of people at some point in their lives. It’s even more common in runners, hence being known as runner’s knee.
  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Peripheral Neuropathy

    It describes as the damage to your peripheral nerves, that is, the nerves to your hands and feet. Damage to these nerves interrupts the important sensory information pathway between the limbs and the brain, resulting in changes to what you feel.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injury (PCL)

    Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injury (PCL)

    Your posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is located within the knee joint and connects to the tibia (shin bone) and the femur (thigh bone). It crosses over diagonally with the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and stops the tibia from sliding backwards on the femur, as well as preventing the tibia from twisting outwards.
  • 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’.

  • 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.

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease where your immune system attacks its own tissues, as opposed to the traditional ‘wear and tear’ arthritis (osteoarthritis). Just under 2% of Australians suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, and it affects women at a slightly higher rate than men

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

    Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

    It describes as the painful entrapment/compression of a nerve (called the tibial nerve) as it passes through a narrow tunnel on the inside of the ankle (called the tarsal tunnel) which is created by the position of the bones and connective tissue.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • ‘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.

    Ingrown Toenail Surgery

    Ingrown Toenail Surgery

    Ingrown toenails occur when a small part of the toenail pierces and penetrates down the side of the surrounding skin. The result is pain, redness and swelling in the affected toe.
