Biomechanics and Gait Analysis
Biomechanics is a term which describes the physical aspects of how the body moves. It studies joints and how muscles, tendons and ligaments bring about and restrict movement. A Podiatrist uses it to work out why a patient may be developing a deformity such as claw toes, bunions, flat feet or why a patient has forefoot/heel/knee or hip pain. Once the cause of the problem is known it is possible to find a solution.
Treatment will include advice on exercise and stretching and may involve prescription and provision of individual appliances and orthotics to compensate for the structural imbalances affecting the function of the feet and legs.
Orthotics are custom made insoles that fit inside your shoes enabling your feet to be held in a more stable position. They are a product of biomechanical research and are designed to correct foot abnormalities by balancing the three most important components of your foot, Bones, Muscles and Tendons.
Nail Surgery and Local Anaesthetics
If you have recurrent painful/infected ingrown toenails then a surgical procedure can be performed to remove the sides of the nail or the whole nail, all of which is done under local anaesthetic. A chemical is then applied to the nail root which for 95% of occasions is successful in stopping nail re-growth. For this procedure it will involve going to a doctors surgery for maximum cleanliness and efficiency. After the nail surgery 3 redressing appointments need to be booked to make sure the wound is cleaned and healing correctly.
This includes the use of Doppler Ultrasound to listen to the quality of your circulation (from your major arteries in the foot). The integrity of the nervous system is also tested via numerous test. Through this assessment it establishes whether your foot is at risk and if so then advice can be given on how to look after your feet. This assessment can also establish whether you would qualify for NHS treatment.
