Biomechanical Assessment

A biomechanical assessment involves looking in detail at the body, its alignment and how it functions. This enables the Podiatrist to develop a treatment plan which will aim to realign the body and remove compensatory patterns so that the lower limb can function without injury or pain.

The assessment includes the evaluation of abnormal foot structures, posture and gait including examination of the feet, ankle, knees, hips and spinal joints.

The most common treatment for a biomechanical problem is the use of orthotic insoles to realign the body. Stretching and strengthening exercises, footwear advice and any life style changes may also be recommended. The custom made orthoses are made from plaster of paris casts of your feet and contain a prescription form which is specific to the individual patient.

The assessment takes one hour to complete. It is advisable to bring along to the assessment either shorts or track suit bottoms.

Nail Surgery

Nail surgery is a minor surgical procedure which involves removal of whole/part of the nail plate. An ingrown toe nail (Onychocryptosis) is the most common reason for performing this technique.

Nail surgery is carried out under local anaesthetic. It is a simple and painless procedure that involves removing the offended nail from the nail bed. The nail bed is destroyed with a chemical known as phenol this aids in preventing further unwanted regrowth of the nail. The procedure takes one hour to complete. You are required to wear open sandals/flip flops following surgery as the dressing is somewhat bulky. At least three subsequent dressings of area are required over a period of 3/4 weeks.
