Podiatry treatments and services in Killarney Vale
Our team at Killarney Vale Podiatry are dedicated to helping improve your overall foot health.
Due to mobility restrictions, injury, disability or a reduction in eyesight, some people may find performing daily footcare difficult. We can assist you with nail cutting, removal of ingrown nails and debridement of corns, calluses and plantar warts to help you maintain healthy feet.
Nail surgery is the permanent removal of all or part of the nail. This treatment is performed when recurrent ingrown nails are an issue, often causing severe pain and localised infection. It’s also an option for deformation of the nail caused by trauma.
Nail surgery is performed under local anaesthetic and takes between 30 to 60 minutes.
An orthotic is a prefabricated or customised device designed to sit inside the shoe to correct the way your foot moves. They are designed to increase comfort, reduce pain and reduce the likelihood of injury. We use the latest in 3D scanning to capture an accurate image of your foot. Visit our orthotics page for more information.
Home Visits/Aged Care
We understand some people may find it hard to get to our clinic. Our home visits can be arranged in homes and aged care facilities.
Biomechanical Assessment/Gait Analysis
Biomechanical assessment and gait analysis are used to determine the exact way your body moves on a daily basis. Where this is malalignment or a muscle imbalance within the body, injury or pain may occur. By performing visual and manual assessment, we are able to determine the issue and help prevent further problems from arising.
Plantar warts are a strain of the human papilloma virus (HPV). The wart appears on the top layer of skin on the plantar surface of the foot. It may look like hard skin, blister or even have a cauliflower appearance. They may cause pain depending on the size and locations.
Treatment: Debridement, offloading padding, footwear advice and medicinal application to the area are all possible treatments for plantar warts.
A fungal nail, also known as onychomycosis, is an infection of the nail bed and the nail plate. The infection may cause discolouration, turning the nail yellow, white, brown, black or green. This can occur in spots, streaks, part of the nail or the full surface. Your nails may also crumble, flake or thicken in the process.
Fungal nail infections are an overgrowth of fungi, which thrives in warm, moist conditions.
