    Ingrown toenails

    Specialising in fungal treatment, we offer expert assessment and treatment of ingrown toenails. Ingrown toenails are caused when the toenails grow into the surrounding skin, which can leave your feet vulnerable to infection. To avoid this, it’s important to wear comfortable shoes and to cut your nails properly. We can help you with any issue relating to ingrown toenails or fungal conditions.

    Diabetic treatments

    At Orange Podiatry Services, we provide assessment, treatment and advice on foot problems associated with diabetes. If you have diabetes, it’s important to take extra care of your feet as the condition can reduce blood supply, thus reducing healing time should you injure them. It’s therefore vital to keep your feet clean, wear comfortable shoes, and to visit your podiatrist at least once a year.

    Orthotics for children/adults sports

    The use of orthotics is often a solution for children or adults who are experiencing foot problems. We can provide arch support to alleviate discomfort and give that much-needed boost to feet when walking or playing sports of any kind. This will ultimately help to prevent injury and we can offer our clients a choice of both commercial and customised orthotics to fit into their shoes.

    Gait/sport/dance assessments

    As children grow and develop, their gait may sometimes seem ‘off’, and this can be due to a foot problem. They may have shoes that are too tight, or they may simply have adopted an awkward way of walking, which can put pressure on the feet and cause damage. Children who take up dance classes or play sports can also develop gait or foot problems, so if you’re worried about anything, just get in touch. We can assess and treat all types of issues in this area.

    Referred Medicare patients

    If you have a pre-existing medical condition, as diagnosed by your GP, and have been referred to a podiatrist or told to seek podiatry services, then we can accept you as a Medicare patient. With our Enhanced Primary Care Plan, you’re entitled to up to five visits through Medicare. Please note: we will require an official referral from your GP.

    Veteran Affairs services

    At Orange Podiatry Services, we’re Veteran Affairs approved. Just book an appointment at the clinic and we’ll help you with whatever foot-related issue you have.

    Payment information

    Orange Podiatry Services accepts most health funds and we also offer bulk billing with a doctor’s referral. For payment, we accept cash and cheques, as well as Visa and MasterCard.
