Common Conditions

Our podiatrists are fully trained and experienced to treat the following conditions to get you back on your feet sooner.

Heel Pain/Plantar Fasciopathy: Heel pain may be called many titles (Plantar Fasciiopathy/Plantar Fasciitis/Calcaneal Spur etc.) it is essentially pain and inflammation occurring under the heel and sometimes extending into the arch of the foot.

Skin and Nail Conditions: There are many different skin and nail conditions. Some of the most common seen are ingrown or fungal toenails, tinnea and corns and warts.

Toe Pain: There can be several causes of your toe pain and in many cases we see more than one factor leading to the pain.

Ankle Sprains: An ankle sprain is essentially a partial dislocation of the ankle joint. Most people report ‘rolling’ their ankle on uneven ground or landing awkwardly from a jump.

Bunions: Bunions can occur in two different places on the foot, one involving the 1st metatarsophalangeal joint complex and the other involving the 5th.

Stress Fractures:  Stress fractures are small micro-fractures in the bones of the feet, most likely caused by overuse or repetitive activity placing strain on certain bones.

Achilles Tendinopathy: The Achilles tendon is a large tendon at the back of the ankle which attaches two major muscles to the heel bone. This allows you to push off during walking and running.

Shin Splints: Shin splints is a common cause of leg pain in athletes.  Research suggests that there may be several causes leading to shin splints dependent on the location of pain.
