Sports Podiatry

Not surprisingly, injuries to the FOOT and LEG make up a large proportion of sporting injuries.  Suzanne and Lauren are hands on and passionate about all sports, especially Australian Rules Football.  We are Podiatrists for the Marist Australian Football Club ( MAFC ). We understand the role that the FOOT and  LEG can play in sporting injuries.

Suzanne is a member of Sports Medicine Australia, SMA, a multidisciplinary association bringing together sports science, sports medicine, prevention of injury and promoting physical fitness. Suzanne Paterson Podiatry therefore have access to information exchange with other members, educational forums and conferences and access to publications and research.

Fitness is a priority for Suzanne and Lauren who can provide assessment and treatment for conditions including:

  • Plantar heel pain
  • Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Ankle instability
  • Muscle strengthening and stretching programs

If you wish to be assessed for a sporting related injury, please bring along your sporting footwear and a pair of shorts, to make a complete assessment more comfortable.
