Our Podiatry Services
Here at Advanced Family & Sports Podiatry, we can help with a range of podiatry issues and some of these include the below conditions.
A biomechanical examination is an assessment of the pelvis, lower limbs and feet that is conducted by both a non-weight bearing and weight-bearing manner. Testing includes joint range of motion, muscle strength and function of the lower limbs during walking and running.
This examination allows the podiatrist to build an accurate clinical picture of what could be causing your pain and what measures are necessary to provide a comprehensive rehabilitation program.
Being injury free is important for your chosen sport and overall health. We treat a number of lower limb sporting injuries covering the hips, thighs, knees, shins and ankle/foot injuries. These include but are not limited to patella femoral syndrome, osgood schlatters, shin splints, stress fractures, achilles and other tendon injuries as well as plantar fasciitis, mortons neuroma and bunion pain.

Diabetic management is where your podiatrist takes care of potential or active problems involving your feet and legs that are a consequence of having diabetes. Diabetes can affect both the blood and nerve supply making your feet more susceptible to chronic problems.
Take a step in the right direction by having your feet checked regularly by a podiatrist. Podiatrists are the most qualified health providers to care for your feet, based on their education, training, and experience. When you add a podiatrist to your health-care team, he or she can provide you with important information so you're able to better manage the effects of diabetes on your feet.
Ingrown nails / wart surgery
Nail surgery at Advanced Family & Sports Podiatry is the removal of all of the toenail or part of the nail to prevent chronic ongoing ingrown toenails or to help prevent pressure related pain to a toe when the nail has sustained irreversible damage.
Wart curettage is the surgical removal (scraping and / or cutting) of wart tissue using a scalpel or a small, sharp, spoon-shaped tool. Curettage usually requires local anesthetic, which will be administered to prevent discomfort during the procedure.
