Lower Limb Injury Rehabilitation

At both our clinics, we have a dedicated gym space to be able to offer injury screening and rehabilitation of lower limb and foot injuries.

Our Sports Podiatrists are specially trained to undertake Video running/walking assessments and functional assessments of your lower limb strength, flexibility, mobility and function. We will then review your video using an online video annotation tool, which allows us to slow down, stop and measure angles and distances as well as compare videos side by side for changes.

Some of the key areas we are assessing in our screening are:

  • Core strength
  • Pelvis position during walking/running
  • Foot strike patterns
  • Hip and Knee placement/rotations
  • Hip and Knee strength and mobility
  • Calf strength and endurance
  • Foot function and position
  • Running Footwear function

After our thorough assessment, we can then guide you through an individualized exercise plan, targeting areas of possible weakness, deficit or restriction.
You will also have access to instructional videos which you can easily refer to via an app on your smart phone or tablet/computer.
Additional manual therapy (such as joint mobilization, massage or taping) may also be utilized for best results.

Our goal is to improve strength and mobility to allow your body to function optimally

Return to Running program

If you have recently sustained an injury, or are looking at returning to running (or perhaps looking to start running) we can also tailor a return to running program to ensure you don’t break down with an injury.
Most often, running injuries are sustained by doing “too much, too soon”

We can ensure you are adequately prepared for a return to running by ensuring you have:

  • Appropriate footwear for your running distance and biomechanics
  • Adequate strength of the lower limb and core to support your body during running
  • Good running technique to lower your risk of injury
  • Appropriate running program, with a gradual build up in time, distance and intensity.


Your consultation will go for 45 minutes. This time allows your Podiatrist to thoroughly examine and understand your needs as well as providing the necessary time to assess your condition properly. We will also develop a comprehensive treatment plan that will enable you to achieve your goal as soon as possible during this consultation.

There is no requirement to supply a referral from your doctor to see a Podiatrist.

With that said, if you have been referred, please bring a copy of the referral letter.

We pride ourselves on offering the highest quality podiatry care, and as a result, we are unable to offer bulk billing on the Chronic disease management plan (formally EPC). Our consultation fees apply to all visits, and a Medicare rebate can be issued to you on the spot with a valid EPC referral. There is a small out of pocket expense on all appointments.

The frequency and number of visitations will depend on the nature of the condition you are being treated for. The treatment and rehabilitation of conditions will vary widely however after an initial consultation your podiatrist will be able to provide a recovery framework for you.

We appreciate 24 hours notice for cancellations when possible. However we know the unexpected can often happen, so a courtesy phone call if you are going to miss an appointment is always appreciated.

An appointment which is cancelled or rescheduled with less than 24 hours notice, may incur a fee of 50% of the consult rate.

If you miss an appointment, without giving notice, then the full rate of the appointment may be charged.
