Podiatry

Build a solid foundation for a healthy body

Looking for an experienced podiatrist in Melbourne CBD? Step right up to The Alignment Studio. With over 30 years’ experience in general podiatry, our skilled podiatrist can assist you with a broad range of foot-related conditions, from ingrown toenails to over-pronation (flat feet), diabetes, skin conditions and painful plantar fasciitis.

What is a Podiatrist (And Should You See One)?

Bearing a significant amount of the body’s weight, your feet are much like the foundations of a building. If they are structurally sound, they shouldn’t cause any problems. But if they’re not in good shape, the whole thing will come crashing down. In the body, this means other structures will overcompensate for any lower limb dysfunction, leading to biomechanical imbalances, referred pain and possibly even headaches.

Thankfully, there is a whole field dedicated to the health of your feet—podiatry. Skilled healthcare professionals, podiatrists diagnose, treat and assist in the prevention of foot, ankle and lower limb conditions. On any day, they’ll see a diverse mix of patients with a range of musculoskeletal, circulatory and neurological disorders affecting the feet.

If you are experiencing pain or have any of the following conditions, book an appointment with our Melbourne CBD podiatrist:

  • Toe, foot or ankle pain
  • Heel pain (or plantar fasciitis)
  • Over-pronation (flat feet)
  • Diabetes and circulatory conditions
  • Arthritis
  • Skin problems
  • Nail conditions
  • Gait abnormalities
  • Balance problems

To our Valued Clients

Your health and wellbeing is our priority. In light of the escalated measures to contain COVID-19, it is with a heavy but hopeful heart I have made the decision to temporarily close the studio effective 5pm Wednesday, 25 March 2020.

In the 30+ years Collins Place Physio and The Alignment Studio have been offering health support to the people of Melbourne, we have never had to close our doors. However, I feel I have a duty of care to both my staff and everyone in our community.

I will be closely following the updates from the Federal and State Governments and will communicate as soon as we are able to reopen.

During the closure, should you have any questions relating to your current treatment plan, you can contact your treating practitioner via email. All patients are also welcome to contact me directly at physiopete@thealignmentstudio.com.au

Thank you for your support of The Alignment Studio. Our patients and clients make The Alignment Studio a great place to work and the whole team looks forward to welcoming you back into the studio soon.

I would like to wish you and your loved ones strength, courage and most of all good health as we go through this challenging time together.

Warm regards,

Pete Hunt
