Why choose Podiatry at Star Physio?
At Star Physio, we work collaboratively with our in-house team of physiotherapists, sports doctors and specialist orthopaedic surgeons to ensure optimal care and early return to previous level of activity for our patients.
The focus here at Star Physio is to use evidence-based practice to do what we do best and concentrate on providing treatment solutions for common musculoskeletal injuries that hinder our foot function.
Our feet have a significant role in providing the foundation that supports the lower limb and body during gait. This, compounded with further tasks like running, jumping, sport-specific drills, traumatic injuries or surgery on them, can create stresses and strains that demand more from your feet.
Our Podiatrists here at Star Physio are frequently treating complex foot injuries which make up the majority of their caseload. This provides them with the wealth of experience and knowledge to tackle your unique presentation effectively and with confidence.

Meet our podiatrists!
Unsure of whether your foot or lower-limb related problems should be seen by a podiatrist or physiotherapist? While both professions are trained in lower limb injury and pain management, podiatrists are experts in foot and ankle biomechanics and are trained in orthotic prescription which can often give rapid improvements in pain in the feet, ankles, shins and even knees.
