Do you have painful or irritating warts on your feet?

Heel Pain | Healthy Life Foot Clinic

Warts are known by several different names including plantar warts & verrucae but they are the same thing. A brief bit of biology – warts are caused by a virus. Viruses cause all sorts of problems including the common cold/flu. There are estimated to be over 300,00 different types of viruses. The culprit that causes warts is a strain of virus called human papillomavirus or HPV.

Warts are generally not painful & can often be left alone. Other times they can be numerous & cause considerable pain. If you have a wart you should call our clinic & make an appointment to confirm it is a wart & not something else. We will advise you if it needs to be treated or not.

Professional Podiatry Services in Adelaide

What to expect at your consultation

When you see one of our Podiatrist’s at Healthy Life Foot Clinic, you’ll not only feel welcomed but confident in their care.

We’ll initially take the time to learn about you and your problem and how it’s affected you and what it’s stopping you from doing. We will then take a thorough history and perform a detailed examination to determine what’s wrong and the cause of your problem.

Part of the examination will involve observation of your walking which may also include the use of video or Gaitscan (this measures the pressure applied under your feet). We may also refer you for further xrays or ultrasound if indicated.

Finally, we will give you a plan which will clearly detail what the problem is, why it’s there and what we will do to get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible. Treatment will vary according to your problem but may include a combination of hands on therapy (foot mobilisation and dry needling), strapping, exercise, footwear advice, laser, orthotic therapy and general foot care.
