Podiatrists are experts in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of feet and lower limb medical conditions. If you ever have foot or leg pain, we recommend a consultation with a podiatrist. Although it is common, pain is never normal. In many cases, it can be caused by wearing ill-fitting shoes or biomechanic issues but regardless of the cause, we can help you determine the source and find the best solutions.
No, it depends on how severe the ingrown is. In many cases, ingrown toenails can be treated without the need for surgery and can be treated relatively quickly in the clinic chair. If it is determined that surgery is necessary, it is a minor procedure performed under local anaesthetic in the toe, that can be performed in the clinic room. The podiatrist will be able to discuss all treatment options and recommend the most appropriate action in your case.
Orthotics are prescription devices which are precisely fitted to your foot in order to correct biomechanical issues with feet. They are typically worn inside your shoes and will correct common problems that lead to foot pain, such as plantar fasciitis. We use a 3D digital scanner to take exact measures of your foot to help prescribe the most appropriate custom orthotic.
Nail fungus is more common than people think. Any fungal infection you have on your feet can eventually spread to the nail bed. An example of this would be Athletes Foot. You can also contract an infection that is transferred from others, by walking barefoot in public showers and other moist, warm, humid places – like Darwins. Also allowing your toenails to remain wet for an extended period of time creates the perfect environment for fungal growth.
