Our Practices

Highgate and Strathalbyn

Our main podiatry practice is located in Highgate, with a smaller practice in the town of Strathalbyn.

We don’t send our moulds to a third party to produce the orthotic. Torben produces custom orthotics in-house, from mould to finished insert. He creates the orthotic in his clinic, and is able to make adjustments when necessary.

Patients always feel amazing after coming to see Torben, he understands the impact feet have on your body. Feet can affect the alignment of the rest of your body, causing pain in the knees, hips, legs and back.

Torben will provide the best possible care of your feet and ankles.
