Podiatrist - Medicare rebates may apply
All DVA and Medicare patients with a referral / care plan from their GP for podiatry will be bulk billled.
Podiatry is the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of the feet and lower limbs.
Podiatrists are registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) after studying for a minimum of four years.
Some of the people and things that a podiatrist can help with may include:
– Skin and nail conditions such as ingrown toenails, thickened nails, corns, cracked heels, callus and fungal nail and skin conditions
– Complications associated with chronic health issues such as diabetes and arthritis
– Children with sore feet and legs, warts and ingrown toenails
– People with pain when walking or running or posture related concerns
– Rehabilitation for people before or after foot and ankle surgery
– Older people who are having trouble with falls or balance
– Prevention of injuries for sports people
– Help with shoe wear advice
You don’t have to be in pain to see a podiatrist, nor do you need a referral from your doctor. A podiatrist is an integral part of your health care team and works with your other allied health team to achieve results to keep you feeling comfortable and pain free.
