The Ankle, Foot and Orthotic Centre
Advanced Podiatry and Orthotic Services
Benefit from advanced care of your foot and ankle pain. Qualified in orthotics and prosthetics as well as podiatry, Geoff Dowling is able to provide the latest treatment options.
Your treatment at our Northcote foot and ankle clinic will be tailored to your needs in order to reduce pain and increase mobility.
Non invasive Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) delivers abrupt, high amplitude pulses of mechanical energy. Used to treat conditions such as degenerated tendons and heel pain, the so-called shock waves of ESWT create a force that induces healing. Shockwave treatment is relatively painless and is a simple procedure.
Ultrasound Guided Injection
Ultrasound guided injections are used to minimise localised foot or ankle pain. During this procedure, a needle is inserted to deliver a small amount of medication / anaesthetic to the affected area. An ultrasound machine is used by your qualified technician to ensure the precise delivery of the medication.
Custom foot supports can be made to fit your feet better than over-the-counter options. Using these can significantly reduce arch and heel pain, ease lower leg tendonitis and limit complications caused by knee pain. Your orthotics are long lasting and exclusively designed to match your stance and gait.
Some patients find they need a combination of custom orthotics to help improve their condition.
Orthotics, braces and supports designed for the foot, ankle, lower leg and knee can have a positive impact on stability as well as mobility. They can ease the pain of chronic conditions and help to cure acute issues.
Sometimes to diagnose where your pain is coming from we need to see the way you move. A professionally conducted dynamic gait analysis will review the placement of your feet, knees and hips when you walk as well as your overall posture. This will allow us to determine the main cause of your discomfort.
Your treatment will be formulated based on your individual needs. Contact us or visit our Northcote foot clinic for a consultation today.
