Fitzroy PodiatryTaking foot and ankle pain away in the heart of Brunswick Street, Fitzroy
We prescribe foot orthotics, specific to your unique foot shape and function. These customized ‘arch supports’ improve the alignment of your foot, ankle, leg and hips.
We provide gentle and complete relief from painful ingrown toe-nails. This can often be achieved simply in the first visit, and if necessary via anaesthetic and nail surgery.
A bunion is when the big-toe joint becomes crooked, potentially causing a lot of pain and arthritis. It is best treated as early as possible, to discourage it from worsening.
Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel and arch pain, often related to your foot posture. Podiatrists see this injury regularly and can help you return to walking pain-free.
Children and teenagers feet go through many postural changes. We assess their foot and leg alignment, and help with problems including pigeon toes, sever’s apophysitis etc.
Flat feet are the cause of many overuse and sporting injuries. Via biomechanical assessment we assess for excessive pronation and can advise footwear changes or orthotics.
Sporting injuries we treat include ankle sprains, fractures, shin splints, knee pain, achilles tendinitis. We prescribe Xrays, MRI, Ultrasound and CAM walkers.
Fungal nail infections are extremely common and best treated as early possible. We guide you through a comprehensive plan to treat this problem which typically worsens.
Did you know it is not normal to experience tired or sore feet, even after a long active day?
Solutions for Your Pain
What happens at your first appointment? We identify the factors causing your injury or discomfort, whether you be training for your first marathon, carrying a toddler on your hip or simply spending many hours working on your feet. Providing focused individual attention, we unhurriedly take a full medical history and learn what daily stress your feet are under.
We’re here to help you!

We clearly explain your diagnosis, discuss available treatment options, and construct a plan according to your needs.
