Pauline, Geni, Julia and Lorelei provide our admin support. From booking appointments, taking calls, or even just answering a few queries, the ladies are not only experienced, but friendly and caring as well.
Our admin in Belgrave (and Olinda) is Danni and Julie. Danni and Julie are very popular amongst the hills locals, and we often wonder whether our patients are coming to see us or the ladies out the front!
We specialise in orthotic therapy for sports injuries, overuse injuries, painful feet, and post-rehabilitation from surgery. We work closely with your doctors and specialists to address your specific concerns and get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
