Total Care Podiatry Rebranding

In our latest blog we explore our successful rebranding of our podiatry clinic. Lynette & Phil and the team at Total Care Podiatry have worked so hard during the rebranding process and we are thrilled to introduce our new rebrand.



We revamped our logo, colour palette and visual style to align with warmth, knowledge and care. One of our most visible changes you will notice is our brand new logo and visual identity (being the foot). The foot symbolises knowledge, science as well as care and connection.

The motivation behind our rebrand to is create a fresh, modern and warm look that is welcoming and a reflection of good foot health, trust, care and knowledge.

We are excited to embark on this new chapter so stay stunned for more…

The Walking Company

Looking after our feet is important for maintaining overall health and mobility. With the aim to promote comfort the Walking Company, who are known for their high-quality footwear, took the opportunity to visit our podiatry clinic. This blog will provide an insight into the visit and how Jimmy (Walking Company Representative) shed some light on the importance of proper footwear.

During his visit, representative Jimmy from The Walking Company had the opportunity to meet the podiatrist and discuss various ranges of footwear. Jimmy discussed with our podiatrist the different options of shoes, whether it is a shoe for the office, or out on the town, for general walkers, hiking, or athletes the staff are highly trained to help with all your footwear needs. They provide a stable shoe, for every occasion. The Walking Company provide comfortable and supportive footwear for people of all ages with common foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis, ball of foot pain, bunions, and flat feet.

The Walking Company’s visit to our clinic was an enlightening and informative experience. Our podiatrist gained insights on what the company offers in terms of comfort and promoting good foot health. Imagine walking with confidence knowing that your feet are supported by good shoes?  Remember to always take care of your feet.


Here’s a photo of Jimmy from the Walking Company at our clinic with our two podiatrist Philip Spark & Kirrilee Lundberg.

Surfcoast Trek Saturday, May 13th 2023

The Surfcoast Trek is on Saturday, May 13th 2023 with the 40km distance starting 7.15am from the Aireys Inlet Light house and the 26km distance starting from Anglesea with both distances finishing at Torquay foreshore. Total Care Podiatry is proud to commit to our ongoing partnership with Kids+ and Give Where You Live by providing foot care to all those weary walkers at the check points along the route. Podiatry help for foot pain and blisters will be available at Anglesea, Point Addis, Southside and Torquay. In past years Trekkers have most foot problems from sand entering their shoes and socks on the beach at Point Addis. Our advice is to stop when you leave the beach and empty out any sand from you shoes and consider changing your socks if they get wet or are full of sand. Gaiters will help prevent sand from entering your shoes. We will be at the check points to help with any blisters. A quick assessment and tape up maybe all that is required by our Total Care Podiatry crew to get you on your way to finishing this terrific achievement. We will be handing out a small sachet of trail mix to help you on the way to the first 400 trekkers that visit one of our tents along the route. Good luck and remember to take a spare pair of socks, consider gaiters and wear your the shoes you have been training in. It might be too late to change shoes now. We shall post a short video before the event on some taping tips to help prevent blistering. Here is a link Shoe selection of some Hoka Hiking Boots in action reducing stone strike.

Hiking in the Otways Shelly Beach – Blanket Bay

Well two beautiful days hiking in the Otways testing out socks and boots under the weight of a pack for two of our Podiatrists.

Philip Spark wore his trusted Grisport Hiking shoes and Alpina hiking socks which were perfect for a lighter day pack. In parts the surface was wet and slippery so the outer Vibram sole was required and it coped well with the rocky parts of the work avoiding stone strike.

Lynette Kent, our most experienced hiker at Total Care Podiatry, was carrying a 65 litre fully packed Osprey Ladies pack so elected the ankle protection offered by her La Sportiva hiking boot and ever reliable blister preventing injinji toe socks. No blisters for Lynette while Phil reported a couple of hot spots under the ball of his big toe joint.

If you are getting ready for the Surf Coast Trek which we are supporting again and need some foot advice then our experienced Podiatrists can help.

Surfcoast Trek Total Care Podiatry

The Surfcoast Trek is scheduled for Saturday 2nd April 2022 and Total Care Podiatry is proud to continue its association with such a wonderful event.

Check out if you have not heard of this event that aims to take walkers on the beautiful Great Ocean Road Walk from Anglesea to Torquay.
A number of distances are scheduled so based on your capabilities select you distance and get training. This is a major fund raising event for Kids+ and Give where you live foundation.

The three stages we are involved are before, during and after the event.

Before the Trek

I hope everyone is thinking about their training load, socks, clothing and footwear.

Training load – increase your training load by no more than 10% per week and seek help from our Podiatrists if you experience foot pain.

Socks – select a sock that is your size, is at least 70% natural fibre and will not fall down during the walk. We love Injinji, Wigwam and OS1st for compression base layer. Visit an outdoor hiking shop for hiking socks and don’t be cheap!

Clothing – hiking shorts or pants for all conditions, think sun and rain

Footwear – Hiking boot, Hiking shoe, trail runners or trail shoe. This can be a confusing choice. If you plan to carry a day pack then a hiking boot gives you added stability in the ankle when walking on uneven terrain in the event you stumble. A boot just might save your ankle as it is very hard to save yourself once you stumble with the added weight of a pack. Hiking shoes shall be the most popular as they have a sturdy out sole to protect the foot from stone strike. They are very roomy in the toe box as the foot and toes will swell on a longer hike and accomodate this and a thicker hiking sock. Now is the time to visit a hiking shop to get your hiking shoes fitted if you don’t already have a pair you just love. Trail runners will provide a little more protection from stone strike than a standard runner. If you are considering wearing runners then make sure you have done plenty of walking on non sealed surfaces.

Total Care Podiatry are providing a 10 minute free consultation before the event to all participants who are registered for the 2022 event. This consultation will be for advice and if treatment or further care is recommended fees will apply. This is available at 209 Malop St Geelong.

During the Event

Total Care Podiatry will be providing foot care during the event to participants who experience blisters, foot pain and or tendon issues. Our Podiatrists will be available at the starting point and then at each check point along the way and the finish line. We will have dressings, strapping and advice on hand to assist with your foot complaints. The majority of complaints on the day are blisters.

After the event

If you develop a problem during or after the event then please follow up with Total Care Podiatry for advice and treatment. Normal fees apply for consultation after the event.

Total Care Podiatry has very experienced Podiatrists who have walked these distances and more so are in an ideal position to treat and recommend solutions to your walking related foot problems.

Call the clinic on 03 5223 1531, email us or make an online booking for further advice.

Wigwam Socks and Hiking Shoes

Hiking shoe with a rocker sole to reduce foot fatigue

Consider walking poles. Philip Spark loving them on steeper longer walks.

Make sure your shoes are not too warn out. I lost the left vibram sole and had to walk out 4 hours. I felt every stone.
