Sports and Biomechanical Podiatry

During activities, our lower limbs carry a significant amount of load, well-exceeding our body weight. This often overpowers our body’s recovering speed. When this happens, wear and tear in our tissues and joints takes place, leading to conditions that can affect our mobility. At FootWise, our podiatrists carry out thorough examinations to ensure that the source of your symptoms are found and accurate diagnosis is given. To ensure we provide a holistic approach to your symptoms, FootWise networks with a variety of allied health professionals and specialists.

Orthotic Therapy 

Like the foundation of a house, our feet serve as the foundation to our body. Due to the variety of our body structures, modern footwear is unable to cater for the support our foot needs. Our feet are also evolved to walk on softer terrains unlike the hard surfaces we often walk and run on. Because of this, FootWise is dedicated to provide the best Orthotics Therapy and bracing so your feet, ankles and knees gets the right support to both heal your conditions as well as preventing them. Orthotics work by correcting and redistributing the load your feet experiences to restore natural and balanced loading to your foot and body to keep you moving forward comfortably and pain free!

FootWise is known for our antifungal management programs. Our Antifungal program produces high consistency in positive results as it is tailored to your skin type and your lifestyle so that we can help you remove and prevent fungal infections once in for all. 

One of the key ways to produce consistent results is with our Clear-a-nail controlled Micro-Penetration equipment. Nail lacquer is known to produce slow results due to low penetration into the nail bed, incorrect usage and inconsistency in application. Clear a nail equipment enhances the effect of nail lacquer and sprays by producing multiple micro holes of 0.4mm in diameter so that the nail lacquer will be delivered in higher dosage (upto 4 times higher than conventional application) to the nail bed where the infection is. 

Upto two sessions is usually required and results are visible within 8 weeks.

 

General nail Antifungal treatment: 4 consultations with nail treatment, 4 laser nail sessions including complimentary antifungal cream and nail lacquer.

 

Clear a nail Antifungal treatment:  5 consultations with nail treatment, 5 laser nail sessions including complimentary antifungal cream and nail lacquer upto 2 sessions of Clear a nail treatments.

Ingrown nail surgeries

Ingrown toenail describes the deeply curved nail at the sides of the toe, which creates a groove and often penetrates the skin on the side of the toe. If the ingrowing becomes long enough or traumatised from activity, an inflammation may occur which could lead to possible infection. Ingrown toenails are often recurring due to the reorientation of the nail matrix. Routine nail care by removing side growing nails can prevent inflammation from happening. When routine nail care cannot sufficiently prevent the frequency of inflammation, whether from sports activities or work factors, the ingrowing nail could be managed by a surgical removal of the offending section. The surgical procedure will help to prevent the side of the nail from growing back permanently by eradicating the matrix cells residing at the side edge of the nail.
