If you’re seeking Podiatry in the Boronia area, make your podiatry Knox appointment with us at our Wantirna clinic. Podiatrists are highly trained health care professionals who can treat a wide range of foot related issues for the whole family, ranging from simple skin and toenail problems to sport injuries and complex biomechanical abnormalities.
Foot problems can often begin as small niggles and develop into more serious conditions if left untreated.
The goal of podiatry is to help the body by reducing foot pain and return to normal health and function via thorough assessment, treatment and rehabilitation exercises.
General Foot Care & Maintenance
We strongly believe prevention is better than cure when it comes to foot care – treatment of the feet is a core part of our podiatry practice.
Managing and maintaining:
Corrective nail surgery
An ingrown toenail is a nail that has penetrated or is pressing against the adjacent skin of the toe, causing pain and inflammation. Sometimes it can lead to infection.
Depending on the case, your podiatrist may be able to remove the offending section of the nail to provide instant relief. Occasionally, however, the ingrown toenail can become repeatedly infected or remain continuously infected, preventing you from going to work, playing sports, or going to school. Such situation may require a more permanent solution.
Our Podiatrists can perform a procedure called Partial Nail Avulsion (PNA) in order to permanently resolve problematic ingrown toenails. This is a one-day procedure that leaves the patient with no recovery time.
Following the procedure, several review consultations are required for redressing. It may be necessary to wear open-toe shoes and to modify daily activities for several days after the procedure. The procedure causes little interference with daily life.
Sports Podiatry and Injury Management
As podiatrists who love sports, we fully appreciate the rigours and demands of training as well as the desire to return to activity as soon as possible. Our goal is to get our clients back to their sport as soon as possible by developing a tailor-made rehabilitation program.

Everyone is unique in the way they walk or run, our practitioners are trained to identify abnormalities and joint alignment problems within the feet and legs.
The development of pain and injury in the feet, ankles, knees, and legs is largely due to abnormal foot biomechanics. Our podiatrists are highly trained health experts who can discover biomechanical anomalies that could be causing your pain or putting you at risk of injury.
Biomechanics of the feet and legs is a thorough examination of the anatomy, alignment, and function of the feet and legs while standing and walking. Our Podiatrists can offer the most effective treatment programme for your individual problem based on the information gathered from the biomechanical examination and gait analysis.
This tailored approach to examination and therapy ensures a quick, successful, and targeted recovery from injury as well as pain alleviation.
Orthotics are used to improve and adjust the mechanical function and alignment of the feet and legs through enhancing their position and balance.
Their purpose is to reposition your foot, realign the lower leg, and align the foot in a more efficient position.

Stretching and Strengthening Programs
The way muscles are designed to work causes us all to encounter naturally occurring musculoskeletal imbalances.
There is no such thing as an isolated muscle; muscles work in groups, and the motion of all three planes must be balanced.
Musculoskeletal assessment will help determine what muscles should be stretched and what muscles should be strengthened to reduce imbalances and improve lower limb function.
Based on the most recent research, our podiatrists can develop a plan to rehabilitate the lower limb and increase the likelihood that it will not be re-injured.
Dry needling is used for varies conditions such as:
These are injections of a local anaesthetic and glucose solution to help speed up the healing process of damaged tissue. This solution can assist in the reduction on inflammatory markers and encourages the new connection of tissue in the injured area.
