Zebris Gait analysis treadmill
The Zebris gait analysis treadmill is a treadmill that analyses the way you walk. By recording how pressure is applied underneath your feet, the podiatrist can accurately determine the cause of your problem. With multiple camera angles also taken during your assessment a prompt diagnosis is ensured. This is especially useful if you have an injury to your feet or lower limbs that occurs with walking or running.
The latest advance in Laser Nail Treatment is available at Advanced Family & Sports Podiatry. The Lunula Laser uses two lasers which are both passed over the foot and nail to stimulate nail blood supply and immune response and also react with fungal cells interfering with the oxygen in the cell wall.
Fungus is contained within the nail complex and the lasers are able to target these fungal cells directly without the risks involved when oral medication is taken or the long period of time required when applying topical medicines that aren’t able to penetrate to the nail bed.
Real Time Ultrasound
The practice has a real-time ultrasound that can be used to image tendons and joints in your feet, ankles and legs to check if there is any tendon damage and to see the extent of injury present. This also aids in accuracy of diagnosis and can be used to check progress of your condition.
Radial Pressure Wave treatment
Radial Pressure Wave treatment is where your podiatrist by use of a specific machine, introduces radial pressure waves into the tissues of the body by the means of an applicator over the region requiring attention. It is widely used in the non-invasive treatment of various musculo-skeletal and soft tissue disorders such as plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis.
