PACT Nail Fungus therapy uses light safely and gently to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi on skin surfaces and nails without pain. This treatment involves applying a dye to the affected area that targets the fungal cell walls making them sensitive to light. We then apply a light to the dye which creates a chemical reaction that kills the targeted cells without harming the healthy tissue.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is an effective therapy aimed at treating chronic (i.e. longer than 3 months) musculoskeletal conditions. Clinical trials have found extracorporeal shockwave therapy to reduce chronic plantar fasciitis in up to 80% of patients.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy delivers radial shockwaves into the body. This therapy breaks an association between pain and muscle tone and vascular tone which enables natural movement patterns to be recalled. This assists with activating healing processes
by increasing metabolic activity formation of new blood cells and improving blood circulation.
Ingrown toenails (onychocryptosis) can be caused by incorrectly fitting footwear, trauma, abnormal nail shape, incorrect nail cutting technique, trauma, and digital deformities. Ingrown toenails may become red, swollen, painful and they may even
become infected where pus occurs.
The podiatrists at Melbourne Podiatry Group can provide you with professional advice on the correct management
of ingrown toenails. This may or may not involve nail surgery.
Foot orthotics are devices placed inside your footwear, prescribed by podiatrists to alter forces that may be creating pain or altered function. There are multiple types of orthotics (pre-fabricated, custom, accommodative, corrective). The podiatrists at Melbourne Podiatry Group will conduct a full biomechanical assessment to prescribe the most effective orthotic device for your presenting complaint, foot type and biomechanical deficits.
