Podiatrists are healthcare professionals who have been trained to diagnose and treat abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs.
They also prevent and assess deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
They can give you and your family advice on how to look after your feet and what type of shoes to wear.
They can also treat and alleviate day-to-day foot problems.
Musculoskeletal podiatry is a branch of podiatry which is related to human movement. Walking to work, playing with your children, going to the gym or training for the marathon all have an impact on your feet.
At PodMed Podiatry we use advanced technology such as PodoSmart Insoles.
PODOSmart is a solution using artificial intelligence algorithms that allows paramedical professionals to analyze the patient’s gait and refine their diagnosis with 13 sets of biomechanical data.
PODOSmart® also helps to detect mobility disorders such as limping or abnormal changes in pronation and supination angles in less than 30 seconds.
Commonly we perform nail surgery which involves permanent removal of part or the whole of the nail.
Faulknors needling is carried out under local anaesthetic and may only require one treatment to eradicate all verrucae.
Cryo-therapy is the application of cold using Nitrous Oxide to freeze the virus and trigger an immune response to eradicate the verrucae.
Steroid injections are commonly used for the treatment of joint and soft tissue disorders.
Steroids help ease pain and reduce high levels of inflammation. They may also protect the cartilage within joints.
Steroid injections are often used in conjunction with a local anaesthetic. There are several different formulations of both steroid and anaesthetic which may be used.
