Welcome to Canberra Heel Pain Institute (CHPI) where the background of the concept started when we had a vision to start the most comprehensive and elite treatment institute for managing heel pain in Australia. After working as sports podiatrists for over 10 years now we have seen countless patients suffering from specific conditions associated with the heel – it is without a doubt the most common and debilitating condition we see as podiatrists. We would encounter this issue on a daily basis ranging from active children and sedentary adults to elite athletes and the elderly and the significant burden it placed on people’s lifestyle drove us to develop a holistic solution.
There are a number of professionals that are key to resolving heel pain including:
- Sports Doctor
- Diagnostic imaging
- Footwear retail
It is for this reason that we have a collective group of the above disciplines all working as part of the CHPI team to resolve your pain so you can be confident that no matter how bad your pain, we can help!
We want to positively affect your lifestyle, recover your injury and allow you to ultimately achieve your goals. It doesn’t matter if you are an Olympic athlete, an everyday runner/gym goer or live a sedentary lifestyle – we look at the big picture and want to resolve your heel pain and get you back to where you want to be. No one likes living in pain, it wears us down and at CHPI we understand the effect that chronic heel pain can have on our mindset and motivation!
