YOUR FEET IN GOOD HANDS

Podiatry is the only profession dealing exclusively with the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and management of conditions affecting the foot and lower limb.

OUR SERVICES

 
ORTHOTICS

 

Orthotics are a range of devices which can be prescribed for functional or structural foot problems to reduce unwanted motions, improve foot pain and function as well as accommodating foot deformities. At Nixon Podiatry we have a range of off the shelf and semi custom orthotics. We also cast for custom orthotics which are made specifically for your foot.

FOOT & LOWER LIMB PAIN

 

Foot pain can make your every day tasks difficult. Foot and lower limb pain could include anything from your toes, arch, heels and ankles right up to the bigger structures such as your knees. We are able to assess the injury, send for imaging, diagnose and implement effective management strategies.

THE DIABETIC FOOT

 

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic condition characterised by high blood sugar levels. Diabetes has a large impact on all anatomical structures in the foot, including nerves, blood vessels, muscles, joints, skin and nails. An annual assessment should be completed by a podiatrist to detect any changes early and provide education to reduce the risks associated with diabetes.

SPORTING INJURIES

 

Athletes put a large amount of strain on their bodies and it is common to experience pain and overuse injuries. Twisting, stop start and high impact sports are particularly stressful on bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles. At Nixon Podiatry we have an interest in the assessment and management of sporting injuries to the foot, ankle and lower limb.

NAIL CONDITIONS

 

Do you get ingrown toe nails? Are your nails brittle, thicker than usual, deformed, lifting from the nail bed or discoloured? Podiatrists are able to assess, diagnose and provide management strategies for a number of common nail conditions.

FOOTWEAR

 

Correctly fitted and supportive footwear is the starting point of any successful preventative or management strategy. As no two feet are the same, our team can provide you with education about the best shoe for your foot. We also have a range of Dr Comfort, Revere, Axign and Orthoheel footwear available for fitting and order within the clinic.

SKIN CONDITIONS

 

Do you experience itching, rashes, blisters, warts, pain from corns or the feeling of walking on a stone, a build up of hard skin or cracked heels? Podiatrists are able to diagnose and provide management strategies for a number of common skin conditions.

NAIL SURGERY

 

The removal of all or part of a toe nail is a procedure which is completed by podiatrists under local anaesthetic. This procedure can also include the destruction of the matrix (where the nail grows from) which prevents the nail re-growing. This procedure can be particularly beneficial in cases of recurrent ingrown toe nails, thickened nails due to trauma which cause pain, and long term fungal toe nails which have not responded to other treatments.

NERVE PAIN

 

Do you experience feelings of burning, tingling, pins and needles or numbness in your feet or toes? There are a number of conditions and injuries which can contribute to nerve pains. Your podiatrist can assess your feet to determine the possible causes and management strategies.

CHILDREN'S FEET

 

Sometimes the signs and symptoms of childrens foot problems can be subtle. Your child may not want to show you their feet due to a change in their skin or nails, they may trip and fall, they may also withdraw from activities they normally enjoy due to to pain. You may notice your child walks pigeon toed, on their toes, with a limp or they have flat feet. A full assessment can be performed by your podiatrist.

ABOUT US

The foot is a vital part of the human body as it has a large amount of force going through it with every step we take. It is important to take care of your feet as foot pain can significantly reduce your quality of life.
