NDIS – Understanding the Importance of Podiatry Services for NDIS Participants

Living with a disability can often feel like a challenge. Add to that foot and ankle conditions, and day-to-day life may seem even more daunting. But remember, you’re not alone. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) exists to support Aussies like you, and we at The Foot and Ankle Clinic of Australia (FACA) are proud to be part of that support system.

So, what do we do at FACA? We’re all about feet! As podiatrists, we focus on understanding, managing, and preventing conditions related to the foot and ankle. Our role is to handle everything from everyday concerns like bunions and heel pain to more complex needs such as diabetic foot care and postural alignment issues.

Now, you might wonder, “How can podiatry help me as an NDIS participant?” Here’s how:

1. Boost Your Mobility: Foot and ankle issues can sometimes hinder your movement. We’re here to help you move freely again, using tools like orthotics, exercises, and even surgical intervention if necessary.

2. Ease Your Pain: Living with constant foot or ankle pain is tough, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We’re trained to manage foot-related pain effectively, making your daily life more comfortable.

3. Stop Problems Before They Start: Regular check-ins with us can help catch potential foot issues early on, allowing us to commence the right treatment before things get more complicated.

4. Give You the Knowledge You Need: We’re strong believers in patient education. We’ll share valuable tips on foot care, suitable footwear, and lifestyle tweaks that can help you manage your condition better.

At FACA, we’re not just about providing a service; we’re about giving you the personalised care and attention you deserve. We know the ins and outs of the NDIS process, and we’ll work together with everyone involved to make your experience as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Whether you need help managing a persistent foot issue, finding relief from pain, or choosing the right footwear, we’re here for you. At FACA, we’re dedicated to helping you improve your foot health and elevate your quality of life.

So if you’re an NDIS participant and need a hand (or a foot!) with your podiatry care, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at 138 333. At FACA, we’re always ready to support you in your foot health journey, one step at a time.
