Frequently Asked Questions

What is the most common problem treated by podiatrist?

Podiatrists are experts at the management of foot and ankle conditions. The most common condition treated by podiatrist is heel pain. Heel pain can be caused by a variety of conditions including plantar fasciitis or achilles pain.

Podiatry treatment for heel pain includes a range of treatments including massage and stretches. Footwear and biomechanics is important in the long term prevention of heel pain – advice regarding appropriate footwear and in some cases orthotic devices can benefit.

What do I need to bring to my podiatry appointment?

If you have a referral or investigations such as X-rays or ultrasounds, this can assist your podiatrist.

For conditions that may be related to biomechanics or sporting related injuries, it can be beneficial to bring common footwear that you would utilise. This will allow your podiatrist to complete a thorough biomechanics assessment.

What do I wear?

Wear comfortable clothing to your podiatry appointment. For biomechanics analysis, it can be beneficial to wear shorts as a comprehensive assessment includes observing knee, shin, ankle and foot positions throughout walking and in some cases running.

Can I claim my podiatry appointment on Private Health insurance?

We accept all private health insurance providers at ME Physio. If you have private health insurance with extras, we are able to claim on-the-spot using HICAPs when you bring your card to your appointment.  This includes claiming of orthotics if your private health insurance includes orthotics as part of your coverage.

Please note, using HICAPs is only available on the date of service. However, where required, our team will provide you a receipt with all details that will assist in claiming through your private health insurer after the date of service.  

What are common foot problems in older adults?

As well as biomechanics and muscular foot and ankle pain, older adults benefit from podiatrist treatment for general foot care.

Common foot conditions that older adults may experience include bunions, corns, calluses, skin conditions, and ingrown or discoloured toe nails. Podiatrists are experts at the management of these conditions.

In addition, regular visits to your podiatrist can maintain your foot health as you get older and reduce the likelihood of a number of these conditions.

Back to school 🔙📚

Last week we were fortunate enough to head back to uni and refresh our anatomy knowledge at @latrobeuni in the anatomy labs. 

Thank you to the Latrobe School of Physiotherapy for inviting us! Last week our team celebrated another great year. 

Whilst Melbourne’s weather had its own plans, we were still determined to keep with the theme of ‘Italian Summer’. We let our hair down to master the art of mixology 🍸🍹followed by an Italian feast. Friday morning Run Club with the team. Practicing what we preach!

Staying stronger, healthier and happier. This time last week, our team was nervously completing their final preparations for @melbmara . 

Congratulations to our physiotherapists and ME community who ran on the day.

Dilen and Michael completed their first marathons. Abbey and Lizzie smashed out their first half. Last Sunday, our team headed down to see our own Matt Warren win a premiership in the VAFA Premier Men’s Competition. Last week our team dedicated a full day to professional development and team building. At ME Physio we pride ourselves on collaboration to put you at the centre of everything we do. 

Our team covered the latest treatments for back pain, financial well-being and finished off the day with salsa dancing. 

Many thanks to our guests including James Schomburgk from @the2ndvisitphysio , Financial Planners Tony Vikram & Cameron Bishop and the @salsafoundation At ME Physio, our focus is on helping you get stronger so that you can keep doing the things you love.

For Tony and Joan, healthier and stronger is being able to navigate the iconic Coast to Coast Walk in the UK! We recently had the pleasure of hosting Elise Bujor from Women’s & Men’s Health Physiotherapy to discuss women’s health issues across the lifespan. 

Our team pride themselves on staying up to date to ensure you’re able to stay healthier, happier and stronger. Huge milestones over the past few weeks with both Tom and Jude from @delasallefc doing their first bit of running in their rehab. 

Tom is on the return from an ankle dislocation whilst Jude is putting in the hard work following a knee reconstruction. Last week our team enjoyed some friendly rivalry at the footy. 

With finals around the corner, some of our team can now safely make holidays plans for September. We recently had the pleasure of hosting the podiatry team from @sespodiatry. 

Our physiotherapists Michael and Abbey presented on rehabilitation following Achilles surgical repair and ankle surgery. Last weekend some of our team got together to complete the 10 km run @runmelbourne. There was no finish line picture as some were keen to run another 15 km!

Whilst running wasn’t for some - brunch was well received by everyone.

You Deserve to Feel Good.
