  • Neurological and circulatory disorders, particularly when associated with systemic diseases such as diabetes

Sports Podiatry at Bounce

Injuries to the feet and lower limbs make up the majority of sporting injuries.

Consequently, a Podiatrist is an important part of the medical team of all athletes.

Here at Bounce, our Podiatrists perform an extensive biomechanical evaluation to determine the cause of injury, and provide a comprehensive treatment regime to address both the symptoms and underlying source of the problem.

Common lower limb services we offer/treat:

  • Heel and foot pain
  • Ankle pain and strains
  • Achilles and other tendonitis
  • Knee pain
  • Shin splints
  • Stress fractures
  • Ingrown toenail surgery
  • Footwear assessment
  • Gait analysis
  • Corn's callous and general treatment
  • Warts
  • Diabetes assessment
  • Pointe assessments
  • Dry needling 

In determining the cause of your injury, a thorough history will be taken, a static evaluation of motion and strength will be performed, and a dynamic assessment of walking, running and sports-specific activities will be conducted.

Based on the results of these assessments, a comprehensive treatment regime will be prescribed, which may include:

  • Stretching and strengthening exercises
  • Sporting footwear advice
  • Padding and strapping
  • Orthotic prescription and modification
  • Cryotherapy, ultrasound and other therapies
  • Shockwave Therapy
