Victor Feet First was established in 2008 by passionate podiatrist, Leanne Murdoch. The practice has created new opportunities for people who struggle with frequent pains and problems. Prior to starting her own business, Leanne had been living and working in Victor Harbour since 2004. Your feet are a complex system of 52 bones, 66 joints, 214 ligaments, and 38 tendons and muscles. Even the smallest imbalance in your feet can cause pain, so letting structural problems go untreated can prevent you from leading a fulfilling lifestyle. Leanne offers detailed consultations for thorough assessment and discussion of your treatment plan. The cause of your foot pain may be due to problems with biomechanics (structure of the foot), inappropriate footwear, growths (corns, calluses), disease (diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis), infection, or injury.
Victor Feet First are sponsors of the Victor Harbour Netball Club, and Leanne is also providing the podiatry support for partakers in the Coastrek walk since 2019. She enjoys helping people find a solution to their foot pain to enable them to continue living an active lifestyle. Feet are an important, but often neglected part of your body. Ignoring the aches and letting issues progress will reduce your overall quality of life, so make sure you book a consultation with the team to get you back on your feet!
DVA referrals and Medicare referrals are welcome for people with a chronic medical condition (such as diabetes), or those who are under a Care Plan with their GP.
