Our detailed assessment includes a thorough examination of the patient’s feet, ankles, knees and hips. We also look at bone structure, muscles, joints, stability and alignment.
This annual assessment involves the observation of feet, legs, arterial blood flow, vibration and sensation, ulcer-risk, pressure and education.
Paediatric ‘Children’ Assessment
Paediatric assessments determine abnormalities in young patients and involve careful examination of walking and gait patterns that are not right.
Orthotics are used to treat a range of conditions such as flatfeet, heel pain and knee pain by positioning and aligning the foot correctly.
Ingrown Nail Removal
When a patient suffers from reoccurring ingrown toenails, surgery may be required. This involves removing a section of the nail and cauterising with acid the area to stop regrowth.
Nail care, calluses, corn debridement and general assessments are offered to improve the health and comfort of the patient’s feet. Advice is also given regarding shoe-wear and gait.
Acupuncture and Dry Needling
Dry needling works by promoting blood flow to a certain area, while breaking down adhesions and scar tissue, freeing structures and promoting repair.
Lower Limb Mobilisation
If the joints in a patient’s hip, knee or ankle experience ligament weakness or trauma, they will require repositioning. This helps reduce stress on the joints and helps keep the body aligned.
Prolotherapy “Non-surgical ligament reconstruction”
Prolotherapy is a natural safe injection therapy that is injected into the affected ligaments, tendons and cartilage which leads to local inflammation.
