Why do kids, recreational and professional athletes choose Melbourne Sports Podiatry?
Podiatrists will vary according to their niche focus. At Melbourne Sports Podiatry our primary focus is on addressing how we can help kids, recreational and senior athletes move safer and more efficiently to reduce the risk of injury and pain.
We prefer not to think of ourselves as foot and ankle specialists. Why? Because we understand the foot is the part of an important chain of joints that can directly affect your knees, hips and even your back. Hence even if you have heel pain you’d be surprised how previous back, hip, knee and ankle injuries can play a part in the resistance to healing. Understanding the importance of assessing your whole lower limb is vital to ensure we don’t miss anything and we can resolve your pain fast.
Providing a focused sports podiatry consult ensures you receive a variety of assessments and techniques to assess, diagnose and treat your pain or injury. Manual therapy (soft tissue therapies, joint mobilisations, dry needling, etc.) is combined with a variety of exercises (balance, strength, stretching & activation) to ensure that your condition is addressed in a timely and complete manner.
Melbourne Sports Podiatry provides a tailored foot and ankle service that focuses and works specifically with the below:
- All foot and ankle sporting injuries and rehabilitation
- Kids with growing pains & poor posture
- Plantar Fasciitis (or heel pain)
- Sports, customised & kids orthotics

- Bulk bill foot and ankle X-Rays
- Dry Needling, Strapping & Massage
Focusing only on these key areas have allowed us to hone in on what are the best diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitation protocols to save you time and money "testing the waters" with different opinions.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re young or old, active or ambitious. If you have pain or concern in the foot ankle or leg don’t hope it goes away with a general approach. Have it treated by our team at Melbourne Sports Podiatry.
