Laser Nail Fungus Treatment
Fungal nail infections can be extremely contagious. Recent research demonstrates at least 1 in 10 of the population may be infected. The increase of this condition within the UK is very alarming with most people not recognising the symptoms allowing the fungus to grow and spread from toe to toe. Our chiropodists recommend the latest Lunula ‘cold’ Laser technology to treat fungal nail infections.
Biomechanics is the name of the science behind the study of body movement which is vitally important when assessing lower limb and foot function. Discomfort or pain within the feet is often connected with an area of foot function being compromised. Such changes can occur following a sports injury, trauma or simply changes in foot function that occur over time.
Changes in foot biomechanics may also affect several other areas of the body. For example, knees, hips, spine and shoulders are all vulnerable to biomechanical changes resulting in discomfort or pain should problems within the feet persist.
In-growing toe nails can become inflamed and very painful with a very high risk of becoming infected requiring antibiotics. The Chiropodists at Waverley Foot Clinic use the latest minimally invasive nail surgery techniques to resolve this situation. Using local anaesthetic, only the narrow edge of the nail causing a problem is removed leaving about 85% of the nail intact. No incision or sutures are needed resulting in an effective and safe procedure with an excellent long term cosmetic appearance.
