How can we help?
Onychomycosis, or tinea unguium, is a fungal infection of the nail caused by dermatophytes, yeast, and mould. It more frequently affects the toenails than the fingernails and is characterised by nail thickening, splitting, roughening, and discolouration. We can treat varying degrees of nail fungus with as little as 4 sequential 12-minute procedures of cold laser.
It's common for these types of lesions to develop under the foot, on top of the toe joints, at the ends of or between the toes. Corns will often appear as cone-shaped bumps on the surface of the skin. Calluses are broader, flat thickenings on the skin.
Biomechanical treatment is the term used for any musculoskeletal injury. This includes, but is not limited to achilles tendon, heel pain, morton's neuroma and posterior tibial tendon. As podiatrists we will assess foot function, anatomical structure and lower limb biomechanics in order to determine the cause of your pain and discomfort.
An ingrown toenail occurs when the edge of the toenail, usually the big toe, grows into the skin next to it (called the lateral nail fold). We will help minimise discomfort and provide an effective solution.
When you have diabetes you are more at risk of having foot and lower limb problems and complications. This typically happens due to nerve damage, or neuropathy, in the feet and toes. This is where your podiatrist can help.
Foot orthotics are intended to correct abnormal, or irregular walking patterns that contribute to stressed and tired joints and muscles. When orthotics are expertly fitted, they can make a significant difference to your pain levels and rate of recovery.
Plantar Fasciitis is a painful condition caused by inflammation of the bands of tissue that connect your heel to your toes. Treatment may include physical therapy and orthotics.
Achilles tendinopathy describes damage to the achilles tendon, the thick band that connects the muscles at the back of your leg to the back of your heel bone. The achilles tendon plays an important role in helping us walk and run, so this damage can make it more difficult to perform daily tasks.
