Podiatry clinic

Providing assessment and treatment services for adults and children.

Based at UniSA’s City East, City West and Magill campuses, podiatry services are provided by undergraduate podiatry students, under the supervision of registered practicing podiatrists.

Clinical services include foot and lower limb assessment and treatment, biomechanics, sports injury, nail surgery and paediatrics (children).

Appointments are essential (a medical practitioner referral isn’t required to access our services). 

  • Services minus-thick plus-thick

    We provide 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
    • custom orthoses and prefabricated insoles
  • Children's Services minus-thick plus-thick

    The UniSA Podiatry Clinic understands children have their own unique development concerns. Lower limb assessment may assist in early identification, particularly if your child is experiencing pain and activity limitations, or if you have a family history of foot and leg problems.Located at both the UniSA City East and Magill campuses, we are able to assist with concerns including flat feet, ‘pigeon toed’ walking, Metatarsus adductus, foot orthoses, warts, pains, bow legs and ingrown toenails.
