This includes clipping and filing toe nails, removing corns, debriding callous, removing ingrown toe nails, debriding cracked heels, treating discoloured nails etc.
Both custom-made and premade standard orthotics are available.
This involves assessing the way in which you move, which may be creating pain and dysfunction if alignment is not achieved.
Diagnosing and treating ligament sprains, stress fractures, overuse injuries, shin splints, hypermobility issues, tendinopathies, muscle tears etc.
This involves providing proper shoe fitting and foot wear education, custom to your needs.
We understand that children grow rapidly and their foot wear needs change during this time. Children experience a range of lower limb issues as a natural part of physiological growth. We can offer the right support and advice required for children's feet.
People with Diabetes are at a much greater risk of foot problems. Therefore it is important to assess the skin integrity, circulation and feeling in those affected with diabetes regularly, to prevent foot problems.
Ingrown nails may require temporary treatment where a spike of nail is removed. However in some circumstances permanent nail removal is required. This procedure is called a Partial Nail Avulsion with Phenolisation. The most appropriate treatment for you will be discussed with the Podiatrist.
The best form of wart removal will be discussed with you, however be assured that we offer cryotherapy at the clinic.
Dry needling is based on neuroanatomy and modern scientific study of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems. A solid mono-filament needle is inserted through the skin and into the deeper tissues that are considered trigger points to your pain. Dry needling works by creating a micro lesion within the pathological tissue, thereby breaking up shortened tissues, inhibiting a reflex arc from the nervous system to the tissue, normalizing the inflammatory response, and centrally mediating the pain. This mechanical and neuromuscular effect provides an environment that enhances the body’s ability to heal which ultimately reduces pain.
Joint mobilisation techniques are used in order to achieve pain-free full range of motion at a particular joint. Joint manipulation is a forceful end range mobilisation which involves the use of a high velocity thrust.
