MRA Podiatry and Orthotics is a leading provider of podiatry services, including CAM walkers in Melbourne and surrounding areas. The company has been in operation for a year and is led by head practitioner, Matthew Armfield. He is a former elite athlete with a degree in podiatry. Because of his background in elite sports, he has a focus on sports podiatry and injury rehabilitation.
CAM walkers for Melbourne patients who have suffered a sports related injury can help with the rehabilitation process. A CAM walker, also known as a moon boot, is a special brace made from plastic that allows the wearer to walk while immobilising the foot. The device promotes healing after suffering any type of acute or chronic injury. The specially designed rocker soles helps the wearer to walk without the use of crutches.
One of the biggest advantages of wearing CAM walkers in Melbourne is the ability to be more mobile. Patients that are placed in a plaster cast will need to use crutches or even a wheelchair to get around. Another advantage is that the device can be removed very easily. This makes showering and sleeping much more convenient. Also, if the patient experiences any swelling or discomfort, the CAM walker can be taken off to relieve any pain.
MRA Podiatry and Orthotics is also well known for its manufacture of orthotic devices. These are inserts that are placed inside of one’s footwear to help alleviate foot pain. Orthotics help align feet into a more anatomically correct and functional position. They are used to treat a variety of foot pathology.
