Your circulation refers to how the blood vessels and veins transport blood around your body. The arteries are responsible for delivering oxygen from the heart to all the major organs, and the veins are responsible for pushing the deoxygenated blood back up to the heart. If there is a problem within your circulation, then there will be signs and symptoms that you should not ignore. Problems with your arteries will present as different symptoms compared to problems with your veins. Knowing when to act will prevent future breakdowns and ulcerations.
Podiatry Station are delighted to share this case study of a 13-year-old boy who presented with discoloured toenails, and after being under the care of our Specialist Podiatrist, he has successfully been treated for a fungal nail infection.
Heel pain can be a right pain in the… heel. Plantar fasciitis is a common problem affecting the bottom of the foot, causing that annoying pain near the middle of your heel and sometimes extends into the area of the arch. It can affect just one foot or occasionally both at the same time.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic condition which can affect most of the joints in the body. With activity and age, the surfaces of our joints become damaged and are then repaired by our body’s own healing processes.
At Podiatry Station we have recently introduced Verrutop for treatment of Verrucas and Warts.
There are several reasons why people experience inflammation and pain in their legs and feet. Lower back pain, knock knees, flat feet, tendinopathies, and plantar fasciitis are the most common musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. However, the list is endless. The good news is that technology has advanced significantly in recent years, providing a host of assessments and treatments that can assist with diagnosing MSK conditions in the lower leg and foot. Below are further details to help you get a better understanding of how we can help with MSK conditions.
If you are a keen runner, walker or simply on your feet all the time, then a gait analysis is for you. If you are looking to improve your lifestyle and need treatment for pain or discomfort in the feet or lower limbs, a PODOSmart gait analysis is an excellent modern tool providing accurate results. This entails the patient going for a short walk with digital insoles that are placed inside their own footwear. The digital insoles have pressure receptors, motion detectors, and use artificial intelligence software to analyse your walking pattern. Alongside the gait analysis, the Podiatrist will also carry out a hands-on biomechanical assessment. This helps to assess your hips, knees, lower legs, and feet. After combining the results from the biomechanical assessment and the gait analysis, the Podiatrist will provide a diagnosis and prepare a treatment plan. The treatment plan often includes footwear advice, personalised stretching and strengthening exercises, insoles/orthotics, and laser therapy.
There are many different treatment options available for individuals who are experiencing inflammation and pain in their feet and lower limbs. Laser treatment is one that has become incredibly popular in recent times. This offers a proven way of managing both acute and chronic pain that is caused by MSK conditions. MLS Class IV Laser Therapy reduces pain because it addresses the cause of that pain, whether this is by healing, repairing or regeneration. Pain relief can often be felt after the first session but does vary with each patient. Laser therapy is completely safe, as well as non-invasive and painless.
Technology has advanced considerably in recent times, and there is an abundance of resources available to allow patients to achieve far better results than ever before. As a matter of course, technology is ever evolving, and future assessments and treatments will only get better. If you are in pain or discomfort, do not delay and book your assessment with the specialist MSK podiatrists at our outstanding rehabilitation clinic, so you receive the best treatment plan for your specific condition and symptoms.
The use of lasers for both medical and aesthetic procedures has been increasing in the last couple of decades. Lasers have been implemented in fields such as optometry and dermatology and have been proven to be extremely effective and convenient. Whilst laser therapy has been included in a variety of medical fields as a replacement or an addition to traditional treatment methods, many are still surprised by its use in Podiatry.
Children are often on their feet, constantly walking and running. Therefore, it is very likely that your child will experience foot problems at some point. This can lead to stress and anxiety for both the child and parents.
