Life with a disability or chronic health condition can feel like a marathon sometimes, with challenges
cropping up like unexpected hills along the route. The good news is that the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is here to give you the support you need to tackle those inclines with confidence. When it comes to your foot and ankle health – fundamental for keeping you on the move and enjoying life – the NDIS is a valuable ally. This article serves as a compassionate guide to help you maximize your NDIS plan for foot and ankle health services.
Your Feet: Your Vital Companions
Think of your feet as your most loyal teammates. They’re with you every step of the way, bearing your body’s weight, maintaining your balance, and allowing you to move freely. However, they’re also prone to various health issues, particularly for individuals with disabilities. The NDIS recognises the importance of foot and ankle health, offering coverage for professional podiatry services to keep your feet fit and you on the move.
Podiatry Services: A Footprint to Better Health
Podiatry, a specialized branch of healthcare focusing on foot and ankle disorders, plays a pivotal role in maintaining your mobility and comfort. Podiatrists deal with a wide range of foot issues, from everyday problems like bunions and heel pain to more complex conditions such as foot ulcers and gait abnormalities. For NDIS participants, accessing professional podiatry services can significantly improve their quality of life.
