Corns and Calluses

Tracey is trained and qualified to safely and effectively remove corns and calluses without damaging the healthy skin around them – and it’s normally painless.

Biomechanical Assessment

Biomechanical assessment is the process of analysing the functions of lower limbs to determine abnormalities.

Ingrown Nails

Ingrown toenails is a common condition that impacts people of all ages, and can be painful and frustrating. Ingrown nails can also cause infections if left untreated. 

Orthotics

Orthotics can help with foot pain caused by medical conditions such as diabetes, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, and arthritis.

Diabetes Assessment

Diabetes is a disorder that affects the entire body – including having severe consequences for the feet.

Footwear Evaluation

Frequently Asked Questions

Referrals - Do I need one?

 In most cases, a referral is not needed to see a podiatrist. However, certain patients such as those with the Department of Veterans Affairs cards, Medicare Care Plans and EPC’s will need referrals from their GP. We also have HICAPS onsite so you can claim directly from your Private Health funds.

It is the Patients responsibility to bring the correct referral to the appointments, failure to do so may impact on the rebates and charges applied

How long is an appointment?

30mins duration for your appointment, Tracey Craig may opt to increase the time required, based on the specific need.

 

What is a general appointment?

General consultations and treatments cover a wide scope of foot problems, including:

What to bring to an appointment?

Please bring to your appointment relevant x-rays and scans and your regular footwear – both work and casual. If your problem may be related to your walking please bring or wear shorts to enable us to view your limbs when walking. If you are in a private health fund please bring your fund card so that we can process your claim via HICAPS.

How should I cut my toenails correctly?

Ensure you cut across your toenail and not down the sides. Follow the nails’ natural curvature. Cutting too far down the edge of the nail using incorrect cutting technique can result in sharp edges which may eventually irritate and pierce the skin.

Does footwear matter with ingrown toenails?

Yes, definitely. It’s important to wear footwear which fits the shape of your foot. Shoes which are too short or too narrow/pointed in the forefoot area are going to push the toes together and aggravate any ingrown toenails.

What to Expect From Your Visit

Tracey Craig will examine your foot and lower leg to check your blood flow, a vascular Doppler assists with this information, providing specific strength of flow and recordable information that can be referenced in future appointments.

Additionally  feeling, sensation and strength of the foot are also assessed. They will identify any area of concern or provided a baseline for your care.

If your concerns are regarding walking and movement , it is important to bring casual and work footwear to assess.
