SERVICES

 

Central West Foot and Ankle Clinic (CWFAC) we look after you through expert care of your feet. We offer HICAPS on the spot claiming for private health fund members and a range of EFTPOS and credit card facilities to settle your account. Some patients with chronic disorders that require expert care qualify for medicare billing through a referral (Allied Health Medicare Referral) from their GP. These patients are entitled to up to five visits per year to be shared among allied health professionals.  At CWFAC we are able to bulk bill these patients at the time of their appointment. We are also registered to treat DVA referrals.

Often the alignment of our bones, tendons, muscles and ligaments can impact the way in which we move. This interaction can cause inefficiencies in the movement pattern causing pain in areas of our feet, ankles, knees and lower back.
Biomechanics is the science that we use to identify and treat these inefficiencies and return the patient to improved movement and less pain.

At CWFAC, we believe that each unique set of circumstances requires a solution that fits the patient. You are consulted as to what will work best for you.

We can choose to use strapping and taping, stretching, mobilisation, strengthening, footwear changes, prefabricated orthotics or custom made orthotics to treat your problem.
