Will I be covered under Medicare?

Yes, if you are referred by your GP under the Enhanced Primary Care Program, then you are entitled to a rebate through Medicare. This program covers patients with chronic and complex conditions including diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.

Should I be concerned about my child’s flat feet/low arches?

A child’s feet change dramatically as they develop. Children are born with ‘flabby feet’, where fatty tissue obscures the arch. A lower arched foot is considered to be normal and is part of normal development up to about age 6. Probably more important is how your child’s feet function – do they constantly trip, scuff their feet or wear shoes unevenly? Do they complain of pain? Don’t let people tell you your child’s pains are just “growing pains” – pain in children is not normal.
If you are concerned, then a consultation with our podiatrist is a small fee to pay for peace of mind.
