This is often referred to as ‘biomechanics’ which is essentially the application of mechanical principles on the body.

The crucial part of orthotic prescription is that you only get orthotics if you need them, and you get the RIGHT ones for your individual biomechanical and movement concerns. Before prescribing orthotics we will assess your movement patterns, biomechanics and realistically evaluate your potential to overcome and prevent injury with or without orthotic intervention.

An assessment will be done on initial consultation to decide whether surgery is the best treatment option for you. 

Toenail surgery

Toenail surgery is a common procedure and solution to toenails that have become ingrown, infected or disfigured due to trauma.

During an initial assessment surgical options will be discussed and advice whether this is the best long-term option will be made.   

Two main procedures:

Partial NailAvulsion (PNA)
Total NailAvulsion (TNA)

Both of these procedures may be carried out with or without a chemical matrixectomy using phenol acid. 

 

Dry needling for Verruca (planter warts)

Needling is a minor surgical procedure, which involves the use of a fine needle to puncture the verruca lesion and dermo-epidermal junction under local anaesthesia.

The goal is to implant infected cells into the dermis, provoking an immune response, which in turn leads to the regression of the verrucae.

Your kids as well as many other kids during their developmental years will go through similar injuries, pains and problems. However not all children grow and develop at the same rate or in the same way. This makes it tricky as a parent to know when pain is a problem or merely just a developmental change.

Tips for parents to watch out for:

The way your child walks

Uneven shoe wear patterns

Any pain in the feet or legs

Growing pain in the heels (Severs disease)

Growing pain of the knees (Osgood- Schlatters disease)

Skin rashes between toes, hard skin, warts

Discolored or painful ingrown toenails

RPW Shockwave Therapy

Extra-corporeal shock wave therapy
(ESWT)  

Read more

Extra-corporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is a treatment used to treat tendon pathology, as well as other musculoskeletal pain.

Radial shock wave therapy is the application of a high-energy acoustic pulse transmitted into the tissue of the affected area in the body.

Each shock wave treatment works to increase the metabolic activity around the site of pain or discomfort. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process, thus reducing pain and promoting the reabsorption of calcium deposits in tendons.

 

Conditions where this type of treatment has been shown to be effective and relevant to podiatry include:

Plantar fascia tendonpathy (heel/arch pain)

Achilles tendonopathy

Lower limb musculoskeletal conditions
