Who & Why

Our Podiatrists Watch You Move

Our Podiatrists Watch You Move

Our Biomechanical assessment involves a detailed posture, balance, movement and gait assessment which helps us to understand why you may be experiencing your foot, ankle or lower limb concern... and how to best address it. Our Podiatrists in Townsville dive deep to find the cause, instead of just treating the symptoms.

We are your local Foot Doctors. Want to learn more about our services? Contact us today.

Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

Do you hobble out of bed in the morning with a painful heel?

Heel pain is common, yet complex. A ‘one size fits all' treatment approach often fails. Research suggests a combination style approach is the best treatment for Plantar Fasciitis, particularly treatments that accelerate tissue healing combined with progressive strengthening.

Depending on each person this may include Shockwave therapy, Prolotherapy Injections, strapping, Custom Foot Orthoses, mobility & strength exercises.

What We Do

Children's Foot Pain & Gait Concerns

Children's Foot Pain & Gait Concerns

We love helping kids! Podiatrists play an important role in addressing concerns with children's foot pain, gait and developmental concerns. If required, early treatment can improve children's strength and coordination and reduce the likelihood of problems occurring in adulthood. It is suggested to see a Foot Doctor if you have any of these concerns with your child:

  • Awkward walking or running patterns; poor co-ordination
  • Flat feet
  • Persistent children's heel pain, foot, ankle or leg pain; 'growing pains'
  • Tired legs, easily fatigued; difficulty keeping up during sport; activity avoidance

Custom Foot Orthoses at Foundation Podiatry

Foot orthoses are a device placed inside your shoe to provide cushioning and support to relieve pain. IF orthoses are required, we use a 3D scan of your feet and information gathered from your Biomechanical assessment to customise your orthoses to your individual presentation. Huge advancements in orthotic technology (3D scanning & 3D printing) coupled with the experience of our highly skilled Podiatrists in Townsville is resulting in great patient outcomes.
