General Nail and Skin Care
Our podiatrists can assist in the routine care and regular maintenance of feet, including skin and nails. These provide pain free short-term
management and long-term prevention of conditions such as corns, calluses and warts. We are also able to assess the reason for corns and
calluses to then prevent them returning.
Diabetic Assessment and Management
Podiatrists are trained to assess, diagnose and provide education on foot care and treat all conditions which may occur in diabetic feet.
Diabetics are at increased risk of changes in feeling and blood flow to the foot and may result in significant changes in foot health. In
your diabetic assessment your podiatrist will assess your foot health and provide education to allow you and your doctor to have a
thorough understanding of lower limb health.

Ingrown Nail Management
Ingrown nails are very painful and are very often seen on your big toe however can still occur on your lesser nails. This is caused by a
myriad of different issues such as poorly cutting your nails, nail shape or even how you walk. Your podiatrist can assess your case and
provide fast treatment to manage your pain. Sometimes we will be able to cut the nail back to reduce the pressure on the nail however
sometimes it might be necessary to have a small procedure. Podiatrists are qualified to perform nail surgery under local anaesthetic to
remove a small section of nail and prevent it from growing back. This is completed in the clinic and often does not require you to take an
extended time off from your usual activities.
Orthotics are shoe inserts designed to support the natural shape of the foot, align the ankle and improve posture and foot function. Our
podiatrists can prescribe off the shelf, semi-custom and custom orthotics to cater to any foot and budget.
Dry Needling and Acupuncture
Dry needling is a treatment where a sterile, single-use, fine filament needle is inserted into the muscle to assist with decreasing pain and
improving function through the release of myofascial trigger points (knots in the muscles). In conjunction with other treatment modalities
it can be used to treat a variety of conditions such as tight calves, plantar fasciitis, shin splints and many more.
Joint Mobilisation Therapy
Foot mobilisation techniques (FMT) is a specifically developed form of manual therapy aimed at improving your foot and leg functionality.
FMT targets the joint of your foot and ankle, which are stiff, poorly aligned or dysfunctional and aims to gradually restore the way they
work. This is achieved through a series of "hands on" treatment sessions in conjunction with an exercise regime specifically
prescribed for you. FMT has evolved from combining the podiatric biomechanical understanding of foot and leg function, with the manual
therapeutic experience of physiotherapy and chiropractic treatments.
Strapping and Support
Using a variety of taping methods and materials your podiatrist can better control the movement in your ankles and feet. Typically, a rigid
tape is used to restrict and ensure better movement of your lower limb. We also offer the use of kinesiology tape. This is flexible and
will stretch and flex with your body. This tape allows us to guide your body through better movement and reduce the overall load placed on
muscles and joints.
When running, we can have up to three times our body weight going through our feet each time our foot hits the ground. This can often
lead to excessive pressure placed on our lower limb and lead to substantial pain and injury. A podiatrist can assess how your feet and
