BIOMECHANICS

Here at our clinic we aim to resolve your symptoms by finding the CAUSE of your pain and keep you and your family healthy and active for longer!

By correctly diagnosing your foot pain, by means of biomechanics and FOOTscan we can then adopt treatment strategies to resolve the condition and get you going again.

Examples of common conditions: Flat feet, Heel pain, Plantar fasciitis, Mortons neuroma, joint/muscular pain and pronation.

If you are suffering from pain in the body there are a number of symptoms which may point to poor foot function. The structure of the foot will support up to 3-4 times your body weight when walking and running. However the slightest misalignment of muscle or bone leads to abnormal foot and leg movements. These abnormal movements produce high stresses in joints and muscles almost anywhere in the body and result in injury. Repeated walking in pain will result in physical changes that will change your walking style and possibly aggravate other structures in the body.

Clinical Gait Analysis is the process by which quantitative information is collected to aid in understanding the cause of Gait abnormalities and in treatment decision making.The twisting, jumping and physical demands in many sports place even greater stresses on the feet and biomechanical system. The cause of many sports injuries is a gradual or sudden change to the body’s biomechanics.

NAIL SURGERY

What Is an Ingrown Toenail?
When a toenail is ingrown, it is curved and grows into the skin, usually at the nail borders (the sides of the nail). This “digging in” of the nail irritates the skin, often creating pain, redness, swelling, and warmth in the toe.

If an ingrown nail causes a break in the skin, bacteria may enter and cause an infection in the area, which is often marked by drainage and a foul odour. However, even if the toe isn’t painful, red, swollen, or warm, a nail that curves downward into the skin can progress to an infection.

Ingrowing toenails can be caused by trauma, incorrect nail cutting, tight shoes and certain nail conditions.

DSC07286IMG_0564Nail Surgery may be required to remove the ingrowing toenail. This may be a partial removal or a total removal. Local Anaesthetic is used to numb the toe as well as phenol which makes it a very successful procedure – 98% effective.

A bandage is applied to protect the area which will be reviewed 2-3 days later. The total healing time is 4-6 weeks and you will be monitored until healed. Call us for advice.
