About Lakes Podiatry

Formed in 2005 by the previous owner Rebecca Cox and purchased in 2008 by Torin O’Grady, the clinic has been offering top-quality podiatry treatment and orthotic therapy to the residents of Gorokan and its surrounding areas for over a decade. Midway through 2009 Torin expanded Lakes Podiatry and opened clinics in Mangrove Mountain and Warnervale. In recent years Lakes Podiatry expanded even further by opening podiatry rooms in Lake Haven, Lake Munmorah and Bluehaven.

Lakes Podiatry also focuses on podiatric/orthopaedic footwear available in clinic and on the Featherstep website. You can see our full range of footwear at www.featherstep.com.au

Here at Lakes Podiatry we have the ability to scan and mill our own custom orthotics inhouse, which means no long waiting times for new or replacement orthotics

Lakes Podiatry is also the only podiatry clinic on the Central Coast utilising both Focal Shock Wave Therapy and Radial Pressure Waves Therapy which can be used to treat a broad range of medical conditions including Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, Tibial stress syndrome, Peroneal Tendonitis and many more.
