Foot & Nail Care in Adelaide

Foot pain can be due to many different things. Some of the most common causes of foot pain include:

Corns – caused by a buildup of hard skin, they can feel like a stone stuck in your foot. Thankfully, they can be painlessly removed – and you won’t feel a thing.

Ingrown toenail – these can really hurt. Most commonly they occur because the nail has been cut too short or you inherited mum or dad’s nails & they are really curved. Either way, we can gently remove the ingrown section & clear the problem. There are times when a more permanent treatment is required and we can perform a minor surgery that will permanently fix the problem.

Thickened & hard to cut nails – nails become thickened most commonly due to either some sort of injury such as dropping a can or brick on your toe or a fungal infection. Either way, the nail can be painlessly cut & filed down. And if due to a fungal infection, we can treat that with several options including laser.

Many people are embarrassed to let someone see their feet particularly if they are somehow different. We will always treat you with dignity & respect & explain the options of how we can help you care for your feet.

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.
