Stonnington Podiatry –
Sports Injury Specialists
Step into a happier life.
At Stonnington Podiatry we use a treadmill and computer analysis software to accurately assess your gait, biomechanical and footwear needs. We have sample footwear to use to reassess your gait and determine the most appropriate footwear for your needs.
Following a comprehensive assessment by our Podiatrists, we can determine the best type of orthoses required to suit your biomechanical, sporting and lifestyle needs. Experienced in Sports Medicine for over 20 years and previously been involved in a Orthotic Lab, we can accurately prescribe, fit or modify even premade devices to ensure you are biomechanically sound and more importantly comfortable wearing them.
At Stonnington Podiatry we manage foot and ankle conditions affecting all ages including children’s growing pains. Heel and arch pain are other common injuries presenting to the clinic. We also manage injuries of the lower limb, pelvic and lumbar region that are as a result of biomechanical anomalies or poor footwear. We liaise regularly with allied health professionals to enable a efficient return to sport, work or activity.
