Podiatry and foot care supports are supports to help you treat and manage conditions that affect your feet, ankles and legs. The Australian health system may provide podiatry and foot care supports. We can only fund these supports if they’re related to your disability.
We may fund podiatry and foot care supports if you need them because of the things you can and can’t do because of your disability. And they help you undertake activities of daily living. These supports might include specialised shoes or funding to treat your foot problems. Podiatry and foot care are especially important if you have a disability that affects sensation to your feet.
