Podiatry WA was formed in 1966 as a professional association in Western Australia and continues to promote the podiatrist as the leaders of foot health in the community. We support our members by providing quality education, networking opportunities and advocacy for the profession.



There are many reasons why people have problems with their feet, ranging from simple changes that happen as we get older, to more complex issues that relate to conditions such as diabetes and arthritis which can make walking painful and difficult.



Podiatry WA members practices are located throughout metropolitan and rural Western Australia. Search our Find a Podiatrist WA member directory to find a private podiatry practice near you.

    Plantar heel pain is a common and persistent cause of foot pain that affects a wide range of individuals. Emerging evidence of intrinsic foot muscle deficits associated with plantar heel pain, along with enhanced understanding of the role of the intrinsic foot muscles, suggests that this may be an important component in management of the condition.

    In this webinar Dr Melinda Smith (PhD, BPhty (Hons)) a Physiotherapist and Postdoctoral Research Fellow at The University of Queenslandwill discuss new developments in our understanding of the intrinsic foot muscles, including the advanced imaging techniques that she has established, using high-field 7T magnetic resonance imaging. Case examples will illustrate how health practitioners can use this knowledge in clinical decision making when managing patients with plantar heel pain, with a specific focus on selection and progression of exercise interventions targeting the foot muscles.

    If you cant attend, a recorded version will be made available to all registered, for 3 days post event. You must still register prior to the event to receive the recording.

    1 CPD point and Certificate issued to all attendees.
