Free Foot Check

Foot and ankle injury care in Camberwell

Free Foot Checks @ CSSM

One of the triggers for foot pain is often a change in activity or a change in footwear as we transition from harder, dry grounds into the wet, winter slog.

Too often at CSSM we see patients who present with longstanding foot pain. Invariably this pain starts as a little niggle, which progresses to discomfort that doesn’t go away and eventually can become quite painful and disabling.

We understand when people say, “It didn’t seem too bad so I didn’t bother to get it checked out,” however identifying issues before they become a problem is a key philosophy of CSSM. With this in mind, Camberwell Sports & Spinal Medicine is giving you the opportunity to quiz our experts and receive a Free Foot Check. It’s time to get those little niggles checked out!

The Free Foot Checks are conducted by our Podiatry team and involves a half an hour assessment including a detailed biomechanical and video gait analysis. Suitable for children and adults alike, these sessions are focused on giving the participant a clear understanding of how their feet function, outlining any evident biomechanical issues, potential causes to these problems and suggestions on appropriate management options – all with a written report. Designed to answer any questions that you may have, we can also give other specific advice regarding shoe selection and self-management of conditions relating to the foot and ankle complex. This will all be provided free of charge with no obligation.

Servicing the general public and athletes from recreational to elite, our podiatrists pride themselves on providing management with measurable outcomes. They are our Foot and Ankle experts.

 

Free Foot Checks are available until August 4th 2019.

 

Sessions are by appointment only, with only limited spaces available each day. Appointments for Free Foot Checks can only be made by calling the clinic on 9889 1078. Free Foot Check Appointments cannot be made online.

Whilst knowledgeable in all types of podiatric care, Alicia does have a particular interest in sport related injuries and the relationship between foot mechanics and performance or injury.

Having an active sporting background this is where Alicia’s passion for biomechanics and movement developed, giving her the understanding of how injury can impact one’s performance and the importance of an individualised treatment and rehabilitation program.

 

In her down time Alicia can be found pounding the footpaths in training for her next running adventure or playing Aussie Rules or netball or punching out a Pilates class with her friends just for fun.  You won’t find her standing still!
