Heel & Arch Pain
One of the most common conditions seen in podiatry, heel and arch pain often share the same cause. Debilitating if not treated quickly and effectively, heel pain can result in prolonged discomfort for sufferers. Heel and arch pain is seen in both active adult’s feet and Children’s Feet.
Active Feet Injuries & Sporting Injuries
Incorrect alignment of the body’s joints and bones can cause acute and long-term injury. Misaligned joints can cause prolonged muscular tightness and adverse changes to posture, resulting in pain and discomfort.
A common cause of foot complications, the nerve damage associated with diabetes can affect a person’s ability to detect sensation, trauma and pressures on the feet. This can lead to several foot complications and conditions requiring podiatric treatment. Poor circulation associated with diabetes can also lead to reduced wound repair, and susceptibility to infection.
Arthritic Joint Pain
Osteoarthritis or degenerative joint disease is a progressive disorder of the joints caused by a gradual loss of cartilage. This loss results in the development of bony spurs and cysts at the margins of the joints.
A very common and painful condition, ingrown toenails occur when the skin on one or both sides of the nail, grows over the edge of the nail. They can occur in both adult and Children’s Feet.
Corns & Callus
The foot’s response to excessive pressure, calluses are an area of hard, thickened skin. Often the result of a biomechanical abnormality, tight fitting footwear, or a predisposition, callouses can be very painful.
