General Podiatry Care
Smooth and pain-free mobility is something we take for granted, but in order to enjoy an active lifestyle (and to take a sunset stroll along our beautiful Holdfast Bay coastline) nothing is more important than our foot health. In fact, strong and healthy feet contribute to our overall mental and physical wellbeing by allowing us to engage in life to the fullest.
If you struggle to walk pain-free, experience numbness, or simply feel too self-conscious to put on a pair of thongs in summer, your ability to work, be active and go about life’s daily tasks is impeded. This can lead to poor mental health and physical ailments such as obesity, Type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Our feet anatomy is quite spectacular: 26 bones, 20 joins and over 100 muscles, ligaments and tendons – in just one foot alone. So taking the time to care for your feet with a regular check-up, before a problem arises, is recommended to ensure optimal health.
