        Don’t let foot conditions such as athlete’s foot, cracked heels and blisters prevent you from living an active lifestyle. Visit our Port Stephens podiatry clinic, Footprints Podiatry, to treat a broad scope of conditions for general footcare services.

        We offer specialised treatment for Blisters, Corns, Calluses, Warts, Foot odour, Fungal toenails, Cracked heels and Athlete’s foot.

        Ingrown Toenails (Conservative & Permanent Removal

        An ingrown toenail is a condition where a whole nail, or a portion, penetrates the skin’s surface. This condition can either be genetic, caused by trauma or incurvated nails, being overweight or the result of poorly fitting footwear. Our Salamander Bay podiatrists have several ways to treat ingrown toenails, depending on the severity.

        The use of conservative treatment, which involves cutting ingrown toenails in a specific way and managing this condition by wearing the right footwear, can help alleviate this condition in the future.

        Surgical correction or removal is another way to treat more critical ingrown toenail conditions. Sometimes only a small portion of the nail needs to be removed with surgery after a local anaesthetic is applied.

        Shock Wave Therapy

        Shock wave therapy available.

        Callus Removal

        A callus is a build-up of dead skin cells, caused by repetitive friction over time. Calluses can often become uncomfortable, due to constantly rubbing against the footwear in which it is enclosed. Our Footprints Podiatry podiatrists debride the callus in a non-invasive way, without discomfort.

         

        Biomechanical Assessment & Orthotic Therapy

        Malalignment of your body can often result in health concerns such as joint pain, which, over time, can become a permanent and debilitating condition. Biomechanical assessment is a medical procedure used to diagnose any alignment issues, enabling the imbalances to corrected. This type of assessment involves analysing the medical history of a patient, before undertaking postural alignment testing, which often incorporates gait analysis.

        The treatment used to correct postural alignment issues is called Orthotic Therapy. Foot orthotics are used to treat a broad range of conditions including: plantar fasciitus, shin splints, flat feet, bursitis and knee pain.

        Our podiatrists specialise in Biomechanical Assessment and Orthotic Therapy.

         

        Diabetes Assessments & Reports

        Diabetes is a condition that can impede blood flow to the feet, as well as causing permanent nerve damage in the affected area/s. If left unchecked, it can result in decreased mobility, and in more severe cases the whole foot needing to be amputated. Some of the foot related symptoms that appear if a diabetic is at risk include discolouration or skin breakdown.

        It is vital for diabetics to have yearly Diabetes Assessments, to ensure that the condition is not restricting blood flow to the feet, or causing any nerve damage.

        See our Footprints at the Bay podiatrists for an annual diabetes assessment and report, to avoid any future feet complications.

         

        Vascular Assessments & Reports

        Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves in the hands, legs, arms and feet in some sufferers of diabetes. This condition can result in loss of sensation, as well as a range of other symptoms including skin ulcers and poor mobility. If it is not diagnosed in the early stages, those with acute Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy may require a foot, leg or arm amputation or it can even result in loss of life.

        To diagnose this condition, podiatrists offer a vascular assessment, which incorporates analysing a patient’s medical history, as well as performing tests on the feet and legs. After the assessment is complete a report is then provided.

        Our podiatrists offer comprehensive vascular assessments and reports.

The areas causing the poor alignment have additional support to correct the problem.
