At Eastlink Family Medical, we are able to offer you the specialised care of podiatry, to ensure your feet are in tip-top care. Our podiatrist, Ben Du, is dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and management of medical conditions and injury of the foot, ankle and lower limb. He has a keen interest in helping you with general nail and foot care, nail surgery, orthotic therapy and footwear, sports injury and management and diabetic foot assessment and wound management.
With experience, Ben can choose the right orthotic (shoe insert) for your feet to achieve overall comfort and function. This can assist in posture, walking pattern, correcting over pronation, supporting the foot and improving overall quality of life.
Recurrent nail problems are able to be treated by our podiatrist, such as ingrown toenail, to ensure pain reduction and enhance overall wellbeing and comfort for our patient. Surgery may be required for an ingrown toenail due to repetitive infection, constant pain and inflammation.
Sports Injury and Management
Our Podiatrist, Ben Du, has a keen interest in treating musculoskeletal and sports injuries, such as tendonitis, heel pain, shin splints, knee pain, arch pain and Achilles tendon condition. Injuries are common within the sporting field, mostly due to overuse, poor conditioning, lack of recovery, poor technique and trauma. This is where our podiatrist steps in. Ben is committed with working with you to design a personalised treatment plan to allow you to get back to competing and training at your best.
