Podiatry is a field of healthcare that focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, management, and treatment of foot and lower limb conditions. A Podiatrist, who is a registered Allied Healthcare professional, is specifically trained to address a wide range of issues such as musculoskeletal injuries, skin conditions, nail conditions, sporting injuries, paediatric foot conditions, the effects of chronic diseases (e.g., diabetes), and loss of the arch of the foot.
Podiatrists commonly treat various conditions including musculoskeletal injuries, skin conditions, nail conditions, sporting injuries, paediatric foot conditions, the effects of chronic diseases (e.g., diabetes), and loss of the arch of the foot. These conditions can cause pain, discomfort, and affect mobility.
Yes, Podiatrists are trained to manage and treat foot problems associated with chronic diseases such as diabetes. Our Podiatrists have expertise in assessing and addressing diabetic foot complications, including diabetic ulcers, neuropathy, and vascular issues. We provide specialised care to minimise the risks and optimise the foot health of individuals living with diabetes.
Yes, Podiatrists can effectively treat sports injuries without the need for surgery. Our Podiatrists specialise in developing rehabilitation programs tailored to individual needs. These programs aim to help patients recover from sports injuries and build confidence to avoid further injuries, ensuring they are ready to return to their daily activities.
The Foot HQ difference is that we optimise our rehab so our patients don’t just return to their pre-injury state, but come out more confident and ready for returning to their daily activities. Unlike most podiatry clinics, we utilise state of the art technology such as photobiomodulation and shockwave to help with injury recovery.
We recommend wearing shorts or pants that can be rolled up over the knee to facilitate a comprehensive examination of the lower limbs. Additionally, please remove any nail polish, gel polish, or shellac prior to your appointment to allow for accurate assessments and treatments.
Yes, Podiatrists accept private health funds. At our clinic, we have a HICAPS Terminal for on-the-spot private health fund claims processing. We accept all major health funds, but it's recommended to contact us or check with your private health fund to confirm coverage and rebate amounts.
Yes, Medicare provides coverage for Podiatry services for patients who have an Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC) issued by their GP. Once we receive a GP referral made out to 'Foot HQ,' eligible patients can receive up to 5 Bulk-Billed Podiatry visits (or the number of appointments allocated by the referring GP) for skin and nail care per calendar year. Please note that patients should keep track of their appointments to ensure they haven't exhausted their allocated services.
Yes, in specific circumstances, we offer Bulk-Billing. Patients with an Enhanced Primary Care Plan (EPC) referred to 'Foot HQ' by their GP are eligible for bulk-billed Podiatry visits for skin and nail care. However, for patients without an EPC plan or those inquiring about orthotic services, Foot HQ operates as a private billing practice.
