Podiatrists deal with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of the feet and lower limbs. Our Podiatrists have a wide skill set to help deal with all problems associated with the lower limbs.
Our feet carry us through life for many years. They perform the basic form of transport, bearing our weight for an estimated 8,000 to 10,000 km every year of our mobile lives. Furthermore, the feet comprise more than one-quarter of the total bones in our bodies.
It makes sense, therefore, to care for our feet because as the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure. If you don’t take proper care of your feet, painful complications can set in that can have debilitating and even dangerous effects.
When pain strikes or something goes wrong with our feet it can impact our overall quality of life significantly. mhealth are experts in the field of podiatry and our highly qualified podiatrists are dedicated to being part of your journey to remain fit and healthy throughout life’s challenges.
Podiatry is a specialist practice to help treat and prevent a wide range of issues related to foot health. Podiatric medicine and surgery is a growing profession in Australia and plays an important role in maintaining and restoring foot health. mhealth podiatrists utilise preventative measures and treatment protocols for all problems related to the feet and lower limbs.
General podiatry treatment can help early diagnosis before pain sets in. Biomechanical assessments use modern technology to examine walking, running, and gait patterns to determine the probable cause of pain. It can also assist athletes to improve their performance and prevent potential future issues from occurring.

Foot problems should be diagnosed early by a professional podiatrist. Foot problems can sometimes be caused by serious underlying conditions like arthritis and diabetes. mhealth’s innovative ‘Gait Scan’ technology uses 3,000 pressure sensors to measure any biomechanical issues that could be the cause of discomfort and pain.
Customised orthotics can then be designed using these pressure imprints as well as 3D digital imaging to treat problems. Some of the conditions we specialise in include the following:
When your feet are giving you problems it may be an indication that your health is under attack. With each step, you could be increasing the risk of a simple abnormality becoming a major problem.
Discomfort and pain from foot abnormalities can affect your joints, posture, and the entire body. If you have problems with your feet contact mhealth today for expert advice, treatment, and relief of pain.
