    General Foot Care

    As your trusted podiatrists on the Central Coast, we understand the importance of maintaining healthy and functional feet. That’s why we offer a range of treatment options covering various common foot complaints, as well as regular foot checkups aimed at preventing those common foot ailments.

    We understand that every patient is unique, which is why we provide personalised care and treatment plans tailored to your specific needs. Our Podiatrists are experienced and knowledgeable, and we use the latest treatments and techniques to provide effective relief and improve your overall foot health.

    Plantar warts are caused by the introduction of a virus onto the skin. Warts on the bottom of the feet are commonly referred to as plantar warts. These can often be misdiagnosed as corns, however, can be distinguished by our Gold Coast Podiatrists. We look to gently remove the wart, and if indicated, apply chemicals that may assist in the treatment and removal of the wart.

    Fungal nail infections are common infections that affect the nails and often present as a small white or yellow discolouration which can also result in the thickening of the nails. We will assess your nails and provide treatment to help reduce the nail thickness, while also providing treatment/advice to help remove and prevent further fungal infection.

    Ingrown nails are a common condition that often affects the toenails. This can often be caused by trauma, tight footwear, inappropriate cutting technique or maybe a hereditary issue. Ingrown toenails can often lead to pain, or infection and are especially important to treat if you are a diabetic.
    Thickened nails are a common complaint that often occurs due to trauma- either direct or from ill-fitting footwear, or due to a fungal infection. They often lead to increased pressure and can make wearing shoes difficult or painful. We offer treatment options aimed at reducing nail thickness to help improve the comfort and overall look of your nails.
    Corns and calluses are caused in areas that are prone to increased pressure or friction which can result from poorly fitted footwear, medical conditions and/or pressure areas related to your walking patterns. We aim to gently remove any painful corns or calluses and look to prevent further problems with regular skin emollients.
    Tinea is a fungal skin infection that is introduced to the skin and often causes dry, itchy and red blotchy skin. Tinea is caused by various factors which include: the environment they are in, such as communal bathrooms, occlusive socks/footwear, inadequate drying between toes or excessive moisture and toe deformities. At Coast Sport, we look to address tinea through appropriate education along with treatment to help cure and prevent further infection.

    Children’s Podiatry

    Paediatric podiatry is an important intervention, as foot and ankle issues in children can easily go unnoticed. Symptoms can be subtle, ranging from excessive crying in babies and toddlers to overactivity in school-aged children who can’t explain their discomfort. It’s vital to protect growing feet and have issues checked out early. Whether your child is crawling, learning to walk, or already an active school-aged child, specialist podiatric care is essential to ensure they can live an active and pain-free lifestyle. Trust our experienced Podiatrists at Coast Sport to provide personalised and effective care for your child’s foot health. You can access children’s Podiatry services at Erina and children’s Podiatry services at Tuggerah.

    Sports Podiatry

    Sports podiatry is a specialised field of Podiatry that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of foot and lower limb injuries in athletes and active individuals. Sports Podiatrists are trained to understand the unique stresses and strains placed on the feet and lower limbs during sports and physical activity. They can provide a range of services, including injury management, gait analysis, running shoe advice, and custom orthotics. Whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, sports podiatry can help you improve your performance, prevent injuries, and recover from existing conditions.

    Sporting injuries are a regular occurrence among athletes and those who lead an active lifestyle. At Coast Sport, our Podiatrists have a special interest in not only diagnosing and treating these injuries but also providing expert assessment to help prevent further re-injury, keeping you healthy, active and involved in the sport you love.
    Our assessments involve a detailed gait analysis in which we will watch the way you move, from walking to running, including those specific sporting movements to help develop a treatment plan that best suits you.
    The type of footwear that is worn can play a major role in sporting injuries, this is why the Podiatrists at Coast Sport are experts in footwear assessments and can help you pick the most suitable footwear for your sport and foot type. At Coast Sport, we work alongside experienced physiotherapists and exercise physiologists to help provide a multidisciplinary approach to your sporting injuries.

    Chronic Conditions

    Chronic conditions refer to ongoing health conditions that require long-term management, such as diabetes and arthritis. These conditions can have a significant impact on foot health and mobility, which is why it’s essential to seek specialised care from a Podiatrist who understands the unique challenges of these conditions. Our Podiatrists at Coast Sport offer specialised care for chronic conditions, including diabetic foot care and arthritis management

    Diabetes can cause a range of related complications, however, one of the most important complications associated with Podiatry is damage to the nerves and arteries in the legs and feet. This can lead to reduced protective sensation which results in wounds or ulcerations on the feet and legs, which if left untreated can result in infection, further tissue damage and amputation. Regular foot checkups every 12 months as well as regular visits for general podiatry care to help maintain foot health are recommended.
    Arthritis is a broad term used to describe many different pathologies that can affect any joint in our bodies, commonly involving some type of joint pain or disease. This affects not only adults but also children and people of all ages. There are many different types of arthritis, however, the most common types are Osteo and Rheumatoid arthritis.Symptoms you may be experiencing are:

    • Pain
    • Swelling
    • Stiffness
    • Decreased range of motion

    Foot and Ankle Conditions

    Pain in the feet and ankles is a prevalent condition that many people experience. At Coast Sport, our dedicated Podiatrists are experienced in diagnosing and treating all causes of foot and ankle pain using the latest evidence-based treatment options. This can include exercises, stretches, custom orthotic devices, taping, footwear education, and activity modification to help you get back on your feet. Trust us to provide personalised care and effective treatment for all types of foot and ankle pain.

    Ankle pain affects a large number of people which can occur at any stage of their life. Often overlooked and hard to describe, ankle pain is often put down to a previous injury or age when frequently there may be an underlying condition that is the cause. This is where the Podiatrists at Coast Sport step in to help. Ankle pain often occurs after an injury such as twisting and spraining your ankle, however other common foot/ankle problems that regularly occur are:

    • Adult-acquired flat foot, which occurs due to tendon degeneration
    • Nerve entrapment
    • Arthritis in the ankle joint
    • Medical conditions such as Gout

    Heel pain is something we see far too often here at Coast Sport, and is a broad term used to describe various conditions that affect the heel. Heel pain is one of the most common foot complaints, and has a wide range of symptoms which are often very painful/chronic problems that may limit your ability to get through day-to-day activities. The most common causes of heel pain are:

    • Plantar Fasciitis/Fasciosis
    • Achilles Tendinopathy
    • Heel spurs.

    Factors such as inappropriate footwear, walk/run pattern, sports and lifestyle factors can all contribute to heel pain. The Podiatrists at Coast Sport offer various treatment options depending on the cause of the heel pain and the type of lifestyle you lead.

    A bunion is a common foot condition our Podiatrists see here at Coast Sport, usually characterised by an often swollen bony bump that develops on the side of the big toe joint causing the forefoot to widen over time. There is often pain associated with bunions, which may result in the lesser digits to retract leading to abnormal walking patterns and painful pressure areas as a result of these bony changes in the foot.

    Our Podiatrists on the Central Coast offer various treatment options such as custom orthotic devices and footwear advice aimed to reduce pain and pressure, increase comfort and potentially slow the progression of bunions.

    Footwear and Custom Orthotics

    Footwear and custom orthotics are essential components of Podiatry care that can help improve foot health and mobility. The right footwear can prevent injuries and improve comfort, while custom orthotics can provide additional support and help address underlying issues that contribute to pain and discomfort. Our Podiatrists at Coast Sport offer expert advice on footwear and custom orthotics, helping you find the right fit and support for your feet. We offer a range of services, including custom orthotics, footwear advice, and gait analysis, to ensure that your feet are receiving the care they need to function at their best.

    Here at Coast Sport, our Podiatrists have been using Custom orthotics successfully to treat a wide range of lower limb problems, treating children through to adults from varying lifestyles and activities. These may include:

    • Heel pain
    • Arch pain/flat feet
    • Shin pain (Shin splints)
      Arthritis or bunions
    • Children’s foot pain
    • Lower back, hip or knee pain

    A Custom Orthotic device is a specially moulded form that is created specifically for each individual’s foot shape and lifestyle. We determine if a custom orthotic device would be beneficial only after one of our experts goes through a complete biomechanical assessment with you to determine if a custom device would be suitable for you.

    Selecting the correct footwear for your sport, work or lifestyle is an important factor in not only maintaining healthy feet, but also injury prevention. At Coast Sport, we are experts in specific footwear selections for your needs and your body! We can educate you and provide advice on how to make informed choices about footwear by looking at the shape of your feet, walk/run patterns and work/lifestyle factors that all contribute to the health of your feet.

    Our Podiatrists at Coast Sport have experience with fitting footwear to all age groups, including selecting and fitting appropriate school shoes and picking the right sports shoes, through to orthopaedic or DVA footwear. Make a booking, today.
