In January, we welcomed Riverside Podiatry and Brad Moodie to our services. We are so happy to be able to offer Podiatry within our integrative clinic, and we are very lucky to have Brad as part of our team!
You might be surprised to learn that podiatrists do more than fix toenails. Brad looks after a range of conditions in the foot and leg such as plantar fasciitis (heel pain and heel spurs), orthotics, fungal infections, painful ingrown toenails, skin conditions, strains/sprains and pains, as well as sports podiatry and orthotics. He also assesses children’s school shoes, foot and walking development.
Most people do not need a referral to see a podiatrist, however some funding schemes require a referral from your doctor. These include Department of Veterans affairs, Workers Compensation or those people who have health conditions being managed under a Chronic Disease Management Plan. Some community health services and most hospital based podiatry clinics will require a referral from your doctor.
Your private health insurance funds may cover part of your consultation or orthotics, if required.
