WHY CHOOSE US
Cheltenham Podiatry is situated in the Melbourne bayside suburb of Highett next to Westfield Southland. As foot and leg specialists, we offer an excellent variety of first class podiatrists with over 40 years of combined experience, state of art podiatry services utilizing the latest cutting edge technology, advice and equipment. Cheltenham Podiatry is one of the longest established podiatry practices in Bayside Melbourne, and is committed to providing exceptional levels of foot and leg care, being an early adapter to the latest in evidence based medicine.
The first podiatry practice in Melbourne to provide the latest in orthobiologics – regenerative medicine injection therapies – platelet rich plasma, platelet and cytokine concentrate, for treatment of osteoarthritis and soft tissue injuries under precise ultrasound guidance. There is a growing body of research supporting substantial pain relief for knee osteoarthritis. At Cheltenham podiatry we often combine these treatments with a variety of prolotherapy techniques (dextrose injection) to treat the whole joint (surrounding ligaments and nerves) to improve joint stability by strengthening the ligaments and normalising any damaged/constricted nerves that may be contributing to the pain and inflammation. We were also the first practice to provide Photodynamic Antimicrobial therapy (pact) for toe nail fungus.
We are at the forefront of drug free pain medicine techniques, including photobiomodulation (low level laser), and specialised nerve hydrodissection under ultrasound guidance for neuromas, nerve entrapments and tarsal tunnel syndrome. These are safer and more effective injectants than cortisones.
By combining these regenerative treatments with orthotics, padding, muscle rehabilitation and appropriate shoes we are able to improve both the internal biological environment of the damaged tissue and reduce damaging external biomechanical factors. Leading to better long term outcomes .
