What we treat

Intro to treatments

Fungal Infection

There are a few different treatment options for fungal nails, the treatment which may be best suited to you is dependent on the severity of the infection and a number of factors following the assessment.

With any fungal nail treatment intervention, it can take anything from 6-18 months for the infection to fully clear. This is because the anti-fungal treatments stop further growth of fungal elements, which allows a healthy nail to regrow, and toenails grow slower than finger nails.

Diabetes related conditions

We pride ourselves on offering advanced treatment options to improve patient care and treatment results. We specialize in foot and wound care for patients affected by diabetes. People with diabetes have an increased risk of developing complications from any wounds on their feet. These complications stem from a decrease in blood flow in the legs and feet, and a decrease in feeling in the hands and feet (neuropathy). The ability to feel a wound present on the feet is important for treatment and care. If you experience neuropathy, you may not know you have a wound on your feet until it is too late.

How we help with your Diabetes

Through continued patient education and regular foot care appointments, we can help you determine if you are at risk for diabetes-related foot ulcers. Our doctors want to make sure patients with diabetes are aware of any wounds and receive the best treatment to prevent such procedures from occurring.

Poor circulation

The purpose of the body’s circulation system is to transport blood, oxygen, and nutrients throughout the body. A reduction of blood to a specific part of the body may cause one to experience symptoms of poor circulation. The most common causes of poor circulation in the feet are obesity, diabetes, and heart conditions such as peripheral artery disease (PAD). Common symptoms of poor circulation include tingling, numbness, throbbing, pain and muscle cramps.

Verrucae

Verrucas (verrucae) or plantar warts are small, rough, raised or flattened lumps that occur over the pressure areas of the feet. These are commonly caused by infections with different strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV).

The virus may be isolated from the skin cells of verrucae. Around half of these disappear on their own in a year. Two thirds of the verrucae persist for at least two years and disappear without therapy. The other one third persists for more than 2 years and is resistant to therapy.

Peripheral Neuropathy

Your peripheral nervous system connects the nerves from your brain and spinal cord, or central nervous system, to the rest of your body. The job of these nerves is to deliver signals about physical sensations back to your
brain. They also make sure your body’s internal functions, like blood circulation and
food digestion, work as they should. Peripheral neuropathy occurs when these nerves don’t work properly because
they’re damaged or destroyed. This disrupts the nerves’ normal functioning. They
might send signals of pain when there’s nothing causing pain, or they might not send
a pain signal even if something is harming you.
Peripheral neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that can cause pain (stabbing,
burning or tingling), numbness or weakness and occasional hypersensitivity.
Most neuropathies affect all three types of nerve fibres to varying degrees; others
primarily affect one or two types. Damage can result from traumatic
injuries, infections, metabolic problems, inherited causes, exposure to toxins and
alcohol. One of the most common causes is diabetes, followed by stroke, anaemia,
peripheral vascular disease and smoking.
Peripheral neuropathy can occur in one or both feet, is not a condition that is easily
cured: the aim is to recognise and manage the symptoms, treat underlying
causes and stop further deterioration.

Arthritis

Arthritis refers to more than a 100 rheumatic diseases and conditions that affect joints. These conditions tend to involve pain, aching, stiffness, and swelling in and around one or more joints.

The word “arthritis” means “joint inflammation.” However, inflammation may also affect the tendons and ligaments surrounding the joint. The symptoms can develop gradually or suddenly and may impair a person’s ability to perform everyday tasks.
