Getting injured at work isn’t just about the physical pain, it’s also about the emotional stress and lifestyle disruptions it can cause. We understand that here at The Foot and Ankle Clinic of Australia (FACA). That’s why we’re committed to helping you, our patients, through every step of your recovery journey when you’re navigating the complex world of workers’ compensation situations.
As foot and ankle experts, we’re uniquely equipped to diagnose, treat, and prevent disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. Our role in these situations is not just to help you heal physically, but also to help you regain your confidence and get you back to your normal routine as quickly and safely as possible.
Here’s how we can help:
- Thorough Assessment: We believe in the importance of a complete understanding of your injury. We do this through a comprehensive physical examination, reviewing your medical history, and, if necessary, using imaging studies like X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs.
- Personalized Treatment: Every person is unique, and so is their injury. That’s why we create a treatment plan just for you. It could involve a combination of medication, physiotherapy, custom orthotics, or even surgery.
- Support Through Rehabilitation: Our role doesn’t end with treatment. We guide you through the essential process of rehabilitation, using exercises and stretches that help you regain strength, flexibility, and balance.
- Preventing Further Injuries: Our care extends beyond your immediate injury. We want to help you avoid future injuries by giving advice on footwear, workplace ergonomics, and foot care practices.
