Nicola Rothera – Podiatrist

Prior to emigrating to Perth with my husband and 2 children in February 2020, I worked in the NHS and private practice for 10 years in the United Kingdom.

Whilst I have a passion for all aspects of Podiatry, I have a keen interest in Foot Pain, Chronic Disease Management and General Podiatry. I love being able to help my patients and make a difference and keep them pain free and comfortable.

Orthoses are medical shoe inserts which can help with the alignment of pressure and help to relieve stress or misuse of certain parts of the feet and body.

They help by re-aligning the foot and motion, as well as reducing corns that may build up on the sole. Pain that people may often feel in other areas (such as the legs and knees) can also be relieved.

General Footcare

Treatment include:

  • Toenail cutting and filing
  • Removal of corns and callus
  • Reduction of cracked dry heels
  • Treatment of thickened and fungal nails
  • Ingrowing toenail advice and treatment

Ingrowing Toenails

With an ingrown toenail, it can often be extremely painful.

The nail penetrates the skin surrounding the edges. It will curl and can cause callous in the nail fold. There are many reasons why you may experience an ingrown toenail – for example due to genetics, injury or a fungal infection. Because of this, it is important to wear properly fitted shoes (not tight) and cut your nails appropriately.

Treatments include:

  • Removal of the ingrown section of nail
  • Regular maintenance
  • Infection management
  • Nail surgery

Diabetic Foot Assessment

It is recommended to have your feet checked at least annually or more frequent, dependent on the level of risk of developing foot complications due to Diabetes.

Did you know that if you have Diabetes or any other Chronic Health Condition you can receive a care plan from your GP which entitles you to up to 5 visits per year paid by Medicare? Speak to your GP if you think you would be eligible. Anyone with a care plan will be BULK BILLED.

During the assessment we check the blood flow to your feet with a doppler and ensure the sensation to your feet is within a normal range. This is the perfect opportunity for you to ask your Podiatrist any questions.

Exercise Therapy

Focusing on your strength to ensure long term treatment success.

This is tailored to your specific lower limb condition.

Verrucca Treatments

Warts are among the most common dermatologic conditions the Podiatrist treats. Plantar warts, also known as Verruca Plantaris, are caused by the human Papillomavirus (HPV), which is a double-stranded DNA virus.

Foot Mobilisation Therapy

Do you feel like there’s a restriction in your joints? Are your feet painful?

Often, subtle, controlled movements of the joints help to increase movements and reduce pain.

Footwear Assessment

If you’re unsure which shoes to buy for a specific condition or sporting activity, ask Nicola and she will be happy to guide you.
