Podiatry Solutions for You

Children’s Gait Plate Solutions

In our Biomechanical Lab, we make in-house specialised orthotics customised to your child’s needs. Monthly progress pictures are taken that provide a look at their improvement. Many say it’s like watching a time-lapse of a flower blossoming. The purpose of the gait plate is to reset the direction of the way your child’s foot faces relative to the knee and/or hip. In the long term, it can make incredible improvements in your child’s gait, comfort and performance while avoiding more traumatic options.

Orthotic Solutions

When appropriately prescribed, orthotics can decrease pain not only in the foot but in other parts of the body such as the knee, hip and lower back. They can also increase stability in an unstable joint, prevent a deformed foot from developing additional problems and improve your overall quality of life.

Bespoke Orthotic Solutions

Postural Workups, Biomechanical and Giat Analysis Labs: We will work together to analyse your form and correct any weaknesses to ensure you are not further damaging your body. Then, we will help correct and perfect your running style utilising custom-created orthotics.

Biomechanical Therapy Solutions

Who can benefit from biomechanical therapy? Many common complaints can be related to biomechanical dysfunction so almost anyone who suffers persistent pain in the feet, lower limbs and back would benefit. Complete pain relief is our goal with every patient.

Laser Therapy Solutions

We use low level laser therapy (LLLT) to successfully treat a wide range of soft tissue injuries:

  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Leg ulcers
  • Pain from osteoarthritis
  • Plantar fasciitis/heel pain
  • Postoperative nail surgery
  • Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis

Laser therapy is not a new treatment but has been used in a clinical setting for around 40 years. The laser stimulates and optimises the body’s natural healing process through controlled application of specific wavelengths of light that have particular physiological effects. The light stimulates the body at a cellular level and targets pain receptors and activates healing.

Podiatry Treatment Solutions

A visit to the podiatrist is the best place to get expert advice and treatment for all types of foot pain and discomfort. Your first visit involves our podiatrist reviewing your digital medical history (paper version available on request), doing an assessment and giving the appropriate treatment. In addition, advice will be given to you on any other signs, symptoms and conditions that may be apparent. Many times signs and symptoms shown in the feet are indicative of other local or systemic disease, heart and vascular disease or diabetes, for instance. We offer a team approach and work with other professionals to meet your needs.

If you are still unsure if you need to see a Podiatrist then feel free to contact us today!

Chiropody Solutions for Diabetics

The successful treatment of diabetes requires a team pf practitioners, as diabetes is a systemic disease that affects many different parts of the body. The podiatrist, as an integral part of the treatment team, has documented success in the prevention of amputations. The key to amputation prevention in diabetic patients is early recognition and regular foot screenings, at least annually, from a HCPC-registered podiatrist.

In addition to diabetic assessment checkups, there are warning signs that you should be aware of:

  • Bleeding corns and calluses
  • Dry cracks in the skin, especially around the heel.
  • Elevation in skin temperature
  • Ingrown and fungal toenails
  • Open sores on the feet that are slow to heal
  • Pain in the legs
  • Skin colour changes
  • Swelling of the foot or ankle

If you notice any of these symptoms, Irrefutable Health is here to help. When you or your child need help with foot health, contact us today to find out what we can do for you.
