Stepping into 2020 with Matty Rimmer!

Feb 13, 2020 | Podiatry

Good health starts from the ground up!

Are your feet allowing you to meet your health goals?

 In order to do normal daily activities, exercise and enjoy life having pain free feet is a must.

Our Podiatrist Matthew now Bulk Bills patients referred by their GP on the Medicare Chronic Disease Management program ( formerly known the EPC program).

For those patients with a valid referral there is no Gap fee or cost for standard Podiatry treatments.

Check with your GP whether you are eligible for up to 5 visits per year with Matthew.

 

With 20 years experience Matthew can provide diagnosis, treatment and advice for a whole range of foot, ankle and lower limb problems including:

  • Heel pain.
  • Shin splints.
  • Achilles Tendon problems.
  • Painful conditions of the forefoot such as bunion pain, neuromas and inflamed bursae.

He can also provide correct diagnosis and treatment for:

  • Toe nail problems, including ingrown toenails, discoloured and fungal nails.
  • Painful dry, cracked heels.
  • Treatment of corns and plantar warts.

 

Do you or a family member have Diabetes?

Diabetics should be assessed and screened at least once every 12 months for foot problems by a Podiatrist.

Matthew conducts comprehensive diabetic foot assessments including checking circulation to the feet and checking for any loss of feeling or abnormal nerve sensations that can occur with Diabetes. He will also offer advice on footwear and preventative measures you can take to avoid foot health complications that can occur with diabetes. A written report back to your GP will be sent upon completion of the assessment.

Think you might need orthotics?

Matthew can prescribe and manufacture a whole range of different innersoles and orthotics to suit all conditions, budgets and many footwear styles including cycling shoes, soccer boots and even some dance shoes and sandals.

He can prescribe heat moldable semi customised innersoles right through to fully custom made orthotics using 3D scanning technology.

Orthotics can benefit all age groups from children to the elderly.
