Podiatry Clinic

The University of South Australia's Podiarty Clinic

The UniSA Podiatry Clinic provides podiatric assessment and treatment services for adults and children.

The Clinic is a teaching clinic offering services to members of the community. Registered practicing podiatrists supervise undergraduate podiatry students who carry out podiatric assessment and treatment.

The Clinic provides a range of clinical services including:

  • foot and lower limb assessment
  • treatment of lesions of the skin and nails, including corns, callus, and nail problems
  • treatment of infections (e.g. plantar warts)
  • nail surgery
  • foot care and footwear education
  • biomechanical assessment
  • insole and orthosis manufacture.

We offer a variety of services and consumables through our four specialist areas; podiatric and biomechanical assessments for adults, paediatrics and nail surgery.

Our services are located on campus at UniSA City East and appointments are essential. A doctor’s referral is not required to access our services.

Services

The charges below are levied to cover costs of materials and to support the maintenance of our clinic equipment.

Please note credit card facilities are not available, we do accept cash or cheque payment.

Podiatric Clinic

Standard Consultation

$10

We provide the assessment and treatment of lesions of the skin and nails (corns, callus, etc.), treatment of foot infections (planter warts, ingrown toenails, etc.), and foot care and footwear education.

Custom Orthoses

$170

Providing custom orthoses designed to support, align and improve the function of your feet and lower limbs. This service includes casting, one pair of custom orthoses, standard covers, dispensing, and a follow up appointment.

Padded insoles

$30

The Clinic can also provide you with padded insoles. Prefabricated insole prices vary, dependent upon the type and brand required.

Biomechanical Clinic

Assessment and Treatment

$10

Rarely do the left and right sides of our body align. As such, when we stand, walk or run our body compensates for these differences. We provide assessment and treatment of your feet and lower limb functions, to identify and rectify the cause of pain.

Paediatric Clinic

Assessment

Free

The Clinic provides foot and lower limb assessment and foot care and foot education, for children 14 years and under.

Nail Surgery Clinic

Assessment and treatment

$30

The assessment and treatment of nail related lesions and infections, including the removal of ingrown toenails.

Teaching & Learning

In addition to providing valuable patient care to the community, the Clinic delivers quality clinical education to UniSA students — the next generation of healthcare professionals. Educated in state-of-the-art facilities, students gain invaluable practical experience and exposure to a community with unique needs.

Podiatry for Children

The University of South Australia offers paediatric podiatry clinics from both the Magill and City East campuses.

Parents may have concerns about the appearance of their child’s feet and legs, or it maybe suggested that they see a podiatrist from their general practitioner, paediatrician, physiotherapist or alike. Common concerns regularly managed by podiatrists include:

  • Flat feet and ‘rolling-in ankles’
  • Knock knees
  • Growing pains
  • Difficulty fitting shoes
  • Toe walking
  • Leg pain
  • ‘Pigeon toed’ walking
  • Clumsiness
  • Ingrowing toenails
  • Metatarsus adductus
  • Foot pain
  • Bow legs
  • Foot orthoses
  • Warts

Children present with their own unique development concerns and are not simply ‘mini adult’ feet or legs. Having your child’s lower limbs assessed in our University-based paediatric podiatry teaching clinic may assist in early identification of concerns, particularly if your child is experiencing pain, activity limitations or you have a family history of foot and leg problems.

Held: Fridays 10am - 12:30pm
Where: Magill Campus, Off Bundey Street, Magill
              City East Campus, Cnr North Tce and Frome Road, Adelaide

Cost: Free of charge
