Whatever your age, foot pain can drastically affect your quality of life. At my FootDr Ispahan (formerly Ispahan Podiatry and Footwear), we understand how important it is to keep you on your feet whether you’re a seasoned sports person, or just need to get from A to B.
At my FootDr our priority is to help you stay healthy, active, mobile and independent.
Whether you play school sport, are a busy parent, an athlete, busy professional or retiree, my FootDr can help optimise your foot health.
We specialise in treating overuse injuries, sports injuries and biomechanical alignment problems that may also cause pain up the chain at the shin, knee, hip and back. We can also help treat common foot conditions from corns, calluses, ingrown toenails and skin conditions, to plantar fasciitis, bunions, tendonitis diabetic foot conditions and other lower limb pathologies
Our team of Podiatrists may prescribe orthotic therapy to correct alignment. Orthotics are custom-designed and fabricated in our on-site orthotic laboratory to suit your individual needs. We also use digital video gait analysis to aid in diagnosing the biomechanical causes of painful foot conditions.
About my FootDr Ispahan Podiatry Centre
Ispahan Podiatry was established by well-known Hobart Podiatrist Clive Browne in 1994. The practice takes its name from the building Ispahan, built in the 1930’s by Iranian doctor Tom Gaha.
Principal Podiatrist Chris Angel has been a practitioner at Ispahan since moving to Hobart in 2001. When former owner Clive retired in 2007, Chris took over the practice and continues to strive for excellence.
In 2017, Ispahan Podiatry entered a new era to become my FootDr Ispahan. In addition to full podiatry services, patients and customers now have access to our great comfort fashion and orthotic-friendly footwear range, conveniently situated at our practice.
Our friendly staff are trained to help you find the right shoes for your needs and ensure the correct fit.
