At Mornington Foot Clinic a thorough assessment will be conducted to determine the cause, treatment and future prevention of your injury. Podiatrists at Mornington Foot Clinic have extensive knowledge and experience with the treatment of sports related foot injuries and the rehabilitation process.
Ingrown toenails can be particularly painful and will often become infected if left untreated. For persistent ingrowing nails, our podiatrists will assess whether permanent removal of the side of the problematic nail is necessary. This procedure can be performed in-clinic under sterile conditions and facilitated by the use of local anaesthetic.
Growing feet can be susceptible to different problems and injuries when compared with adult feet. Toe walking, in-toeing, out-toeing and severely collapsed arches are some of the common developmental foot problems that can be assessed and treated or monitored. This can affect lower limb alignment, pelvic and spine positioning.
It is important for people living with diabetes to see a podiatrist for regular routine foot care and annual diabetes foot risk assessment.
