Services We Provide

Sports Podiatry

We treat a wide range of foot problems using a number of modalities including therapeutic ultrasound and cryotherapy. Overuse injuries are frequently caused by abnormal foot biomechanics. Using specialised gait analysis these can be identified and treated successfully. In some cases, orthotics may be recommended as part of your treatment. A modification to your footwear may also be suggested.

Orthotics

Using the latest 3D foot scanning technology and video gait analysis, JS Podiatry offers professional custom made orthotics (shoe inserts) specifically designed and tailored to address individual needs.

High Risk Foot Assessment

Conditions such as diabetes predispose your feet to complications such as ulceration, deformity and even amputation. Assessment and regular monitoring are essential allowing early detection and prevention of such complications.

Nail Surgery

Nail surgery is a common procedure performed by podiatrists to treat an ingrown toenail. Surgery is usually an option when conservative treatment is no longer effective and the soft tissue repeatedly becomes infected as a result.
