Employing a team of avid sports people, the staff at Hunter Podiatry Services understand the FRUSTRATION of not being able to perform at your peak.
Our podiatrists know the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and understand that injuries are inevitable. Ironmen, professional rugby referee, high level netball and football players, cyclists, surfers, Crossfitters and weekend warriors- fitness is our passion.
Staying active means we get the same injuries, suffer the same angst, apply the same principles and celebrate the same wins when we’re back in action.
We work with the athlete, their coach and their health professionals to ensure the fastest realistic return to sport. We love bouncing ideas off the best sports medicine minds in our area and sharing how we approach these injuries from the foot up.
Orthotics or Orthoses are an in shoe device that supports or influences the foot in order to alter foot function. With so many different styles of orthoses it can be very difficult for the general public to know what their specific needs are when deciding on an orthotic.
Children’s feet are complex structures. They differ from adults feet as the immature bone structure results in the child’s foot being highly flexible and soft. This often results in children having a flat foot during the early stages of walking. However, the immature foot undergoes various stages of development as the child grows. There may be cause for concern if your child remains flat-footed.
Heel pain is the most common musculoskeletal condition that podiatrists treat. It is estimated that approximately 10 per cent of the population will suffer heel pain at some point in their lifetime.
