Sydney Podiatrists Unlocking Mobility

At Pinnacle Sports Podiatry Sydney, we are firm believers that your mobility starts from the ground up. The feet and lower limbs are the foundation of the body and are responsible for bearing our full body weight as we walk, run, and move through everyday life.

When your feet and lower limbs are not healthy, they can unlock a pandoras box of pain and discomfort that can impact overall mobility. Common feet and lower limb injuries such as plantar fasciitis, shin splints, hammer toe, bunions, ingrown toenails, and heel spurs can inhibit our ability to walk or run for long periods of time.

Taking care of your feet is essential for maintaining overall mobility and quality of life. For us, this means treating issues at their root, often advising on correct strengthening exercises, and proper footwear and support that keep your feet in check.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer bulk billed podiatry?

In most cases your visit will not be covered by Medicare.

In some cases, your appointment may be partially or fully covered by the Medicare rebate for some eligible treatments. In order to qualify for the Medicare rebate, you must fulfil a specific set of criteria and receive approval from your local GP. Based on an initial assessment from your GP, your visit may be eligible for bulk billing under Medicare’s Chronic Disease Management Plan.

Do I need a referral from a GP for an appointment?

No, you do not need a referral from your GP to book an appointment with a podiatrist.

Do you provide podiatry for kids?

Yes, our podiatrists provide children’s podiatry services for foot and ankle problems. Children’s feet are (of course) still developing, so it’s important that we do our best to prevent any long-term issues such as heel pain, plantar pain, or toe deformities.

Why is it important to treat foot & lower limb problems?

As podiatrists, we know that foot health is critical for overall health and wellbeing. Our feet are the foundation of our bodies and support us when we stand, walk, and run. Additionally, foot health can impact our overall mobility and quality of life – so it’s important that we look after them.

Most importantly, we know that improper foot care can unlock a pandoras box of problems with other parts of our bodies including lower limbs, back, and knees.

Do you treat ingrown toenails?

Yes, in fact our head podiatrist Tom is a little bit obsessed with them. So much so that we have a specialty website dedicated to treating ingrown toenails through Nail Bracing, Nail Surgery, and Pain Free treatment procedures.

At Pinnacle Sports Podiatry, we offer a range of surgical and non-surgical options that are catered towards your unique circumstances. In some cases, you may require a local anaesthetic to ensure the best treatment for ingrown toenails. Whether you have ongoing fungal nail infection or ingrown nails, we aim to provide immediate and permanent ingrown toenail pain relief using a range of contemporary, evidence-based treatment methods.

Will I need to get foot orthotics?

Not necessarily. In our reckoning, custom foot orthotics are over-prescribed by podiatrists as a “fix-all” solution for foot and lower limb issues. At Pinnacle, we know that custom made orthotics can be a valuable tool in addressing chronic foot and lower limb issues, however, our first course of action is always to identify the root cause of your issue and finding the most effective and conservative treatment method.

Before we prescribe custom orthotics, we will make every effort to resolve your foot and lower limb issues. Depending on the nature of your injury, this may involve stretching, strengthening exercises, and recommending changes to your footwear.

How often should I see a podiatrist?

Prevention is always better than a cure, which is why many of our happy clients are long term patients that receive ongoing care. If you have had any foot pain or other problems associated with your feet or lower limbs, then it’s a good idea to have regular check-ins with your local podiatrist.

What conditions do you treat?

We deliver both sports and general podiatry care for a wide range of concerns in Sydney. If you’re experiencing ongoing foot problems, you’re going to benefit from the extensive experience and knowledge of an experienced podiatrist.

How can i prevent foot and lower limb injuries?

Prevention is always better than a cure, and there are a few important steps that we recommend that everyone takes so that they can spend less time in our office and more time running, walking, and moving through everyday life as comfortably as possible.

Wear shoes that fit properly and are fit for purpose – if you’re running, you’ll need a good pair of shoes that have been fitted. If you think you may have been running in the wrong shoes or incorrectly fitted, our team can perform a comprehensive Biomechanical Assessment and Gait Analysis, before providing footwear advice and fitment recommendations.

Trim your toenails regularly – picking your toenails is probably on your significant other’s list of pet peeves, and it’s on ours as well! Trimming toenails can help to prevent a myriad of infection and ingrown toenail issues that can cost you time, effort, and money to rectify.

Avoid going barefoot on hard surfaces – we get it, the barefoot craze was big. Vibram’s may have their place in certain activities but running or walking on hard surfaces is not one of them. The debate that we have evolved into shoes, and they are unnecessary usually fails to address the fact that we now walk and run over hard surfaces – something our ancestors didn’t need to worry about. Yes, there are some vocal proponents of barefoot running, and we are not dismissing it completely, however, if you’re running on hard surfaces – please us appropriate equipment.

Regularly stretch your feet and ankles – just like your calves, hamstrings, and lower back – your feet and ankles can benefit from regular stretching. Activation exercises, strengthening, and regular stretching can all help to mitigate your changes of injury.

Be kind to your feet – high heels and tight-fitting shoes for an extended period of time can wreak havoc on your feet. and cause heel pain If you plan to wear either one, it’s a good idea to schedule in some sitting throughout the day to mitigate pressure on your ankles and feet. Take breaks and rest your feet if you are standing of walking for long period.
