What a podiatrist can do for you

General Podiatry Treatments
Through regular monitoring of your foot health, podiatrists help maintain the mobility of many elderly and disabled people and others with mobility issues.

Biomechanical assessment
Biomechanics is the analysis of the function of human motion. The Walking Clinic uses specialised equipment to detect anomalies in the anatomy and function of the foot and lower limbs during gait (ie movement). This ensures that appropriate and effective treatment is provided. This can range from specific exercises to prescription of orthotics.

Construction and fitting of custom made orthotics
Orthotics are custom made shoe inserts specifically made to alleviate your foot problem. See Orthotics for further information.

Shoe advice
We can evaluate and provide advice on your current footwear and help you find comfortable shoes suitable for your feet.

Diabetes
If you are diabetic you have probably already been advised by your GP to attend a podiatrist regularly. The Walking Clinic is one of the few clinics in Canberra to use a nerothesiometer. This state of the art machine measures the level at which you can feel vibration. This indicates whether you suffer from peripheral neuropathy which can cause decreased sensation in your feet. Having peripheral neuropathy puts your feet at increased risk of infections due to injury. So it is essential that this condition is monitored and advice given for you to manage it correctly.

Assessment and treatment of children
If you are concerned for any reason at all about your child's feet come in and we can assess the problem.

Referrals

Referrals are generally not required to attend The Walking Clinic. The exception is if you are a Department of Veterans Affairs gold card holder, or have a workers compensation claim.

Enhanced primary care plan
This is a program that Medicare have introduced which entitles patients with a chronic condition, such as diabetes, to claim a medicare rebate for up to 5 visits with specialised practitioners, including podiatrists. You need to bring your referral and any information your GP gives you to your appointment.

Private health cover
Treatments are claimable through all private health funds. We use HICAPs, which automatically assesses and claims your appointment back on your private health cover. To utilise HICAPs make sure you bring your health care card with you.

Workcover
To claim your appointment through workcover you will need to have with your your doctor's referral, your claim number and your claim details.
