GENERAL FOOT CARE
Dry Skin/Calluses/ Corns
Athelete's foot/Tinea Pedis
In-grown toe nails
Pressure placed on particular areas of the foot can cause the body to respond by thickening the surface of the skin. These hard patches are called calluses and they are a natural part of the body's defense system.
If pressure becomes concentrated in a small area, a hard corn may develop and cause acute pain, swelling and redness. Treatment of corns and calluses are usually painless.
Laser treatment is a safe and effective way of treating the early stages of nail fungal infections, warts, and minor tendon injuries without side effects.
HEEL PAIN/SPORTING INJURIES
DIABETIC FOOT CARE
3D Foot Scanning Custom Orthoses
An assessment of your foot posture and gait is required to determine the cause of the pain. We are qualified for X-ray and ultra sound referrals for diagnosis.
Orthoses are shoe inserts designed to improve the overall function of feet. There are many different types of orthoses to suit people of all age groups.
If diabetes is poorly controlled it can lead to nerve damage and poor circulation in the feet.
It is very important to have regular check ups with your podiatrist. Annual nerve and circulation assessment is recommended.
