We can help with treating difficult to cut nails, in-grown toe nails, thickened nails, cracked heels, corns and callus affecting young and old.
Verruca treatment can differ from person to person, depending on the size, location and how long a verruca has been present. Treatments options include conservative acid based formulations, freezing, or surgical removal of the verruca.
A Biomechanical Assessment will be completed to assess your Knee Pain, Ankle Pain, Shin Pain, Foot Pain, Heel Pain, Arch Pain and/or Forefoot pain. We have the latest in Computerised Video Gait Analysis and Force Scan Technology to assist in your diagnosis.
These are in-shoe devices used to modify the foot’s abnormal gait patterns to provide a structural solution to musculoskeletal problems.
