What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a program funded by the Australian Government to help with the costs associated with having a disability. The NDIS helps ensure that people with disabilities and their families have the supports they need.
The Scheme is for Australians under 65 years old, who have a permanent and significant disability and is designed to help participants achieve their goals and live to their full potential.
What does the NDIS fund?
Registered participants can access ‘reasonable and necessary supports to help participants achieve their goals and live a full and independent life. Podiatry services are one of the support services covered by the NDIS and therefore, may be part of your plan
What podiatry services can I access under the NDIS?
At The Foot Hub, we are proud to support the NDIS by providing high-quality podiatry care delivered with compassion. As a registered NDIS provider we can provide services under the following NDIS categories:
We can provide custom foot orthotics and ankle-foot orthotics. Custom foot orthotics are inserts you place in your shoes to support the natural shape of the foot. They also help align the ankle and improve foot function and posture in general. They may be prescribed for a range of foot, ankle, leg and lower back conditions.
Ankle foot orthotics are used to improve walking by supporting weak muscles. They may also be used to keep joints in alignment, accommodate any deformity and reduce spasticity.
As the name suggests, we provide podiatry care to improve your daily living skills. Things that you can come to see us for include:
- General foot care, including nail care,
- Treatment and management of a wide range of skin conditions, including athlete’s foot, corns and cracked heels
- Treatment and management of injuries and musculoskeletal conditions, including foot pain
- Management of foot deformities such as bunions and hammer toes
- Wound management
- Diabetic foot care, including diabetic foot assessments
- Surgical treatments such as ingrown toenail surgery
- Children’s podiatry services
- Advice on wearing the right footwear.
We understand that travelling to your podiatrist is not always easy, which is why we offer Home Visits to registered participants. Through this service, you can access the same quality care from our highly-experienced podiatrists, that you would in our clinic. For further information, please contact our clinic.
