COMPLIMENTARY follow up consultations at the clinic are also available, and if applicable FREE orthotic adjustments (which can be carried out in-house & on-the-spot)


Easy/Practical - Only 1 Clinic Visit Required

No need for multiple clinic visits! Due to the nature of our proven, heavily researched, highly effective and completely safe X-Factor treatment- Home Use Low Level Laser Therapy (to stimulate the healing response in the damaged tissue), our comprehensive Treatment and Rehabilitation Programs, and our FREE phone consultations, just one clinic visit is required to set you up to heal your heel.

Different, Highly Effective, Purpose-Made Orthotics

If inefficient foot and lower limb biomechanics are the main cause of your Plantar Fasciitis or other heel pain, we feel our ARC (Advanced Rearfoot Control) Orthotics will more effectively reduce the strain on your Fascia/Tendon than standard arch-based custom orthotics (which you may have had before). Based on principles used in structural engineering, we feel they correct poor foot function more efficiently, thereby reducing the strain on the Fascia/Tendon more effectively.  For more information on these incredible alignment correcting inserts, go to the “Our Treatment” page


Our Focus Is Solely On Heel Pain

Being a clinic specialising in the pathologies that cause heel pain means that we are dedicated to finding the best ways to assess and treat exclusively these problems eg, Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles related pathologies Sever’s Disease in Children, and other heel pain pathologies. Because we deal with these problems exclusively, we know how to overcome the more difficult cases with our proven, scientific, and  comprehensive approach based on scientific principles

Footwear Modifications

To optimally reduce the strain on your Plantar Fascia/Achilles Tendon at all times (including around the house) we can modify appropriate footwear (elevated at the heel contoured thongs, sandals or slides). These simple yet highly effective modifications to improve the alignment of your feet, and thus reduce the strain on the Fascia/Tendon can be done quickly and inexpensively in-house and on the spot (at the clinic)
