If you’re looking for a podiatrist in Bayside Melbourne, then Highett Podiatry has you covered.
Taking care of your foot health is important for several reasons, including;
Our feet are responsible for carrying our entire body weight and helping us move around. Foot pain or discomfort can limit our mobility and make it difficult to perform daily activities.
Our feet play an important role in maintaining good posture. If we have foot problems, it can affect the alignment of our entire body, leading to other issues such as back pain.
Foot injuries can be painful and take a long time to heal. Taking care of your feet and wearing appropriate footwear can help prevent injuries such as sprains, strains, and fractures.
Foot problems can also be a sign of other health issues such as diabetes and arthritis. Regular foot check-ups can help identify and address any underlying health concerns.
Our feet deserve to be comfortable! Taking care of your foot health can help prevent common foot problems such as blisters, calluses, and ingrown toenails, making it easier and more comfortable to walk and stand for extended periods.

What kinds of podiatric conditions do we treat in Bayside Melbourne?
If you’re experiencing any of the following conditions, don’t put up with them any longer! Consult us for care and treatment.
Podiatric skin conditions can be caused by a variety of factors, such as infections, allergic reactions, and friction. Some common skin conditions of the feet include corns, calluses, blisters, and warts. These conditions can be uncomfortable or painful, and if left untreated, they can lead to more serious problems.
Nail conditions can also be caused by infections, trauma, or genetic factors. Ingrown toenails are a common nail condition that can be painful and lead to infection if not properly treated. Other nail conditions include fungal infections, thickened nails, and black toenails.
Plantar fasciitis is a condition that causes pain in the heel or arch of the foot. It is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is often caused by overuse or repetitive strain and can be treated with rest, ice, stretching, and orthotic devices.
Fungal toenails are a common condition caused by a fungal infection in the nail bed. The nail may become discoloured, thickened, and brittle, and may even separate from the nail bed. Fungal toenails can be treated with topical or oral antifungal medications.
Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection of the skin on the feet. It can cause itching, burning, and scaling, and may lead to blisters or cracked skin. Athlete’s foot is often caused by warm, moist environments such as locker rooms or swimming pools and can be treated with topical or oral antifungal medications.
Ingrown toenails occur when the nail grows into the skin surrounding the nail bed. This can cause pain, swelling, and even infection. Treatment for ingrown toenails may include soaking the foot in warm water, gently lifting the nail, or, in more severe cases, surgical removal of the nail.
Heel pain can be caused by a number of factors, including plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, or Achilles tendonitis. Treatment may include rest, stretching, ice, orthotic devices, or physical therapy.
A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of the big toe. It can cause pain and discomfort, and may make it difficult to wear certain shoes. Treatment for bunions may include padding or splinting the toe, wearing wider shoes, or, in more severe cases, surgery.
Hammer toe is a deformity that causes the toe to bend downward, resembling a hammer. It can be caused by a variety of factors, such as genetics or wearing shoes that are too small. Treatment may include wearing special shoes or orthotic devices, physical therapy, or, in more severe cases, surgery.
Podiatric sports injuries can be caused by overuse, improper footwear, or trauma. Common sports injuries of the foot and ankle include sprains, fractures, and Achilles tendonitis. Treatment for sports injuries may include rest, ice, compression, elevation, physical therapy, or, in more severe cases, surgery.
Ankle injuries can be caused by a variety of factors, such as trauma, overuse, or instability. Common ankle injuries include sprains, fractures, and ligament tears. Treatment for ankle injuries may include rest, ice, compression, elevation, physical therapy, or, in more severe cases, surgery.
