Freedom through Mobility

At Total Care Podiatry we care about how your level of mobility affects and impacts your ability to enjoy life and do the things you want to do.

If you have chronic pain or a complex condition affecting your feet, lower limbs and/or your back, our team approach to patient care is aimed at providing a complete and comprehensive treatment plan.

Your treatment plan will address all the components of your condition in an integrated approach to reach a pre-determined goal set in consultation with you.

Our Team:


Paul has been a podiatrist in private practice since 1987 with a special interest in musculoskeletal conditions. He is a fellow of the Australasian Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine and has recently become the first podiatrist admitted as a member of the Pain Society of Australia.

The focus of his practice has always been on comprehensive, evidence based examination and diagnosis of the underlying causes of presenting symptoms, to achieve the best possible outcome for each patient.

Paul has had very encouraging results using an individualized, modified nordic walking technique for people with limited mobility, including those with neurological disorders and arthritic conditions and is currently conducting a pilot study through the School of Medicine at Deakin University to ascertain if nordic walking will maintain mobility and improve quality of life for individuals who are awaiting knee and hip surgery.
