Sports Podiatry

Sports Podiatry


Sporting activities such as walking, running and jumping, all place a greater physical demand on the body than your normal daily activities would. During running alone your feet can absorb up to 3 times your body weight and this increases significantly if your sport includes jumping as well. Not surprisingly a large majority of sporting injuries affect the foot, ankle and lower limb. Conditions which your highly trained Podiatrist at Wanneroo Podiatry can diagnose and treat include:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Foot and ankle pain
  • Knee pain/ patellofemoral pain
  • Heel pain (spurs)
  • Arch pain/plantar fasciosis
  • Shin Splints
  • Stress Fractures
  • Bursitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Tendinopathies
  • Metatarsalgia/Morton’s Neuromas
  • Ingrown toenails or damaged nails
  • Flat/Pronated feet
  • High arched/Supinated feet
  • Hip and lower back pain
  • Referred pain
  • Ingrown toenails or nail damage/bruising
  • Skin conditions: dry cracked skin, corns, callouses, verrucae (warts),fungal infections, blisters & rashes
