WHY IS FOOT CARE IMPORTANT?
It doesn’t occur to us in our daily activities, but there’s a lot that our feet are responsible for, such as;
- Mobility, especially walking, running, and standing
- Posture and balance
- Athletic performance
If you are experiencing conditions such as foot pain, it can severely affect your independence and your quality of life. That’s why it’s important to care for your feet. Make sure you seek podiatric help if you’re experiencing foot pain or discomfort that affects your quality of life.
WHAT KINDS OF FOOT CONDITIONS REQUIRE PODIATRIC CARE?
If you’re experiencing any of the following, we recommend that you consult a podiatrist so you can get the right care and relief;
We diagnose and treat a wide range of skin conditions affecting the feet, such as blisters, corns, calluses, warts, and athlete’s foot.
We diagnose and treat various nail conditions, including fungal nail infections, ingrown toenails, and thickened or discoloured nails.
Plantar fasciitis is a common condition that causes pain in the heel and bottom of the foot. We diagnose and treat plantar fasciitis using a variety of methods, including ultrasound therapy and soft tissue work, orthotics, and shockwave therapy.
Fungal toenails are a common condition that can cause thickened, discoloured, and brittle nails. We diagnose and treat fungal toenails using various methods, such as topical or oral antifungal medication, laser therapy, or KeryFlex nail restoration.
Ingrown toenails occur when the edge of the nail grows into the surrounding skin, causing pain and inflammation. We treat ingrown toenails by removing the affected part of the nail and providing advice on how to prevent future occurrences.
Heel pain can be caused by various conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, and heel spurs. We diagnose and treat heel pain using a range of methods, such as stretching exercises, orthotics, shockwave therapy, and in severe cases, surgery.
A bunion is a bony bump that forms at the base of the big toe, causing the toe to point inward and the joint to protrude outward. We provide advice on how to manage bunions and recommend appropriate footwear. In severe cases, we also refer you to a surgeon where required.
We diagnose and treat various sports injuries affecting the feet and lower limbs, such as stress fractures, ankle sprains, and Achilles tendinitis. We also provide advice on injury prevention and rehabilitation.
Ankle injuries, such as sprains and fractures, can cause pain, swelling, and instability. We diagnose and treat ankle injuries, and provide advice on injury prevention and rehabilitation. We can also refer you for a surgical opinion where required, as that may be necessary to repair the damage in severe cases.
