Our Podiatrist Kristian De Pasquale is now consulting every Thursday in Normanville at The Chiropractic Works.
Kristian began visiting the coastal town in August and offers a range of management strategies for foot, ankle and leg conditions affecting people of all ages.
Utilising exercise programs, strapping, dry needling, mobilization, orthotics, and ongoing advice and education to address patient concerns, Kristian is also able to provide general foot care including routine skin and nail management, as well as diabetes assessments and education.
Other areas of interest for Kristian include sports injuries, biomechanics of the foot, ankle and lower leg, Australian rules football related podiatry, and injury prevention and rehabilitation.
Having seen a number of patients from Normanville and surrounding towns in the Fleurieu Peninsula visit sportsmed locations over the years, particularly at our Morphett Vale complex, Kristian and the podiatry team were eager to consult and provide dedicated foot and ankle services within the region.
“Normanville is a small community that doesn’t have much in the way of specialist healthcare such as podiatry, so we wanted to offer our services to local residents,” De Pasquale said.
“We appreciate the distance patients have travelled from Normanville to see our team in the past, particularly when you consider there is no public transport to and from Adelaide.
“It’s pleasing now we can return the favour to those committed patients and provide them with convenient, regular access to foot and ankle healthcare close to home.
“sportsmed has developed a number of successful, long-term relationships with regional towns and we expect that rapport to continue in the proud and respected community of Normanville.”
While Kristian is currently the only sportsmed podiatrist visiting Normanville, there are plans for other members of the foot and ankle team to consult in the near future including Carmel Maher.
Patients who require any surgical treatment have access to our modern, private orthopaedic hospital at our Stepney Healthcare Hub in Adelaide.
All private health funds and patients including uninsured are welcome at sportsmed.
