Podiatry at Upwell Health Collective in Camberwell is not your standard podiatry care. We have flipped podiatry on its head by delivering a model-of-care that is much more in line with current healthcare expectations from our community and utilises the latest in evidence-based practice. We have addressed all of the things that we know our communities have been wanting from their podiatrists.

What is Podiatry?
The goal of podiatry is to diagnose and treat specific foot and ankle problems that a patient is facing, in addition to general foot health. This can include treatment for heel pain, plantar fasciitis, fractures, sports injuries, ingrown toenails, corns, calluses, and arthritis.
Every podiatry client at Upwell receives a one-on-one assessment from a fully trained podiatrist who will use diagnostics such as gait analysis to build a comprehensive program. This can include a wide range of treatment types depending on the severity of the condition and the desired outcome.
Benefits of Podiatry
Our feet are very important which makes foot care extremely important as well. There are many different problems a person can encounter involving their feet and thus many different benefits that podiatry can provide. Podiatrists treat conditions at the source and also teach patients how to lower the risk of similar problems in the future.
Most podiatry treatments are safe and non-invasive. They provide a comfortable alternative to high-risk treatment options. Podiatry is an essential form of health care that’s useful for children, adults, and seniors.
