Workplace injuries can severely impact one’s ability to perform tasks effectively and even impede normal day-to-day activities. At The Foot and Ankle Clinic of Australia (FACA), we provide comprehensive treatment options and rehabilitation services for individuals who have sustained foot or ankle injuries at work.
- Assessment and Diagnosis:
We begin with an in-depth examination, assessing your overall health, specific injury, and the nature of your work to accurately diagnose the condition. This involves reviewing any relevant medical history, performing physical examinations, and using advanced imaging techniques if necessary.
- Personalized Treatment Plan:
Based on the evaluation, our experienced podiatrists will design a personalized treatment plan to address your specific needs. This could involve conservative treatments such as rest, ice application, compression, elevation (RICE), physical therapy, and custom orthotics, or more advanced options like surgery, depending on the severity and type of your injury.
- Workplace Injury Rehabilitation: FACA offers extensive rehabilitation services to help you recover fully and safely return to work. This includes physical therapy to restore strength, flexibility, and balance, and guidance on modifying workplace practices to prevent re-injury.
- Education and Prevention: Our team is committed to educating patients on preventing future injuries. We provide advice on proper workplace ergonomics, suitable footwear, and exercises to strengthen your feet and ankles.
- Liaison with Other Healthcare Professionals: We understand that recovery from a workplace injury often involves multiple healthcare professionals. At FACA, we are prepared to work in conjunction with physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and general practitioners to provide holistic care.
- Work Cover Claims: Our team can assist with Work Cover claims and provide necessary documentation regarding your injury and treatment progress. We can also communicate directly with your employer or case manager to discuss any necessary work modifications to facilitate your return to work.

Our dedicated team of professionals is committed to providing the highest level of care and support throughout your journey to recovery.
