Conditions

We treat the following conditions:

 

Back pain

Some conditions of back pain are related to poor foot posture, gait anomalies and/or limb length differences.  In these cases a biomechanical assessment is required

Bunions (Hallux valgus)

“Protrusion” or “lump” of the 1st joint which may limit movement of the big toe and cause an “aching” pain or stiffness of the joint. You may find it difficult to find shoes that fit comfortably and properly. Occurs as a result of a bony deformity.

Children (Paediatrics) Podiatry

Feet are for life and we believe it is extremely important to quickly and carefully identify any developmental issues that children may have with their feet. Children may have foot problems without experiencing pain.

We provide advice, assessment, diagnosis and gentle and considerate treatment for gait problems, flat feet, footwear advice, in-toeing, knock knees, shin pain, painful ingrown nails, plantar warts, temporary insoles and prescription orthotics.

Some indicators of developmental foot problems may be “tired” legs, flat feet, feet turning inwards/outwards, bouncy gait and/or toe walking.

Claw toes, Hammer toes, Curly toes

Poor foot posture can cause all of these complaints as well as also causing pain in the balls of the feet and heel pain.  This can result in shin splints and other ailments.

Corns
 

Patch of hard skin with a focal area of pressure. Usually under bony areas and between toes. Feels like a ‘stone’ or ‘pebble’ is stuck in the foot. Removed painlessly within 1 treatment. 

Diabetes

Our Podiatrists have many years of experience caring for patients with Diabetes.   We work closely with your Doctor and other health professionals, and will use our expert skills in neuro- vascular assessment, offloading to redistribute pressure to prevent ulcers and wounds and general care to treat your nails and skin, balance and reduce pressure areas.
