Foot And Leg Pain

A Biomechanical Assessment is an in depth appointment to ascertain the reason for your foot and leg pain. For parents, you may start to notice your child "walks funny" and that is also a good time to bring them in for evaluation.

We take a full history, assess your body structure, your muscle strength and joint range of motion, perform a video gait analysis (watch and record the way you walk) and distinguish exactly where your pain is. Using all the information gathered from the various tests, we will be able to diagnose your condition and devise a treatment plan specifically for you.

Nail And Skin Care

Our feet carry us through life. We stand and walk on them all day long. So it's no wonder they are subject to some significant wear and tear. Don't suffer with unsightly nails or sore feet, come and see us today.

These conditions if left untreated, can worsen over time, can cause a lot of pain, can lead to compensation patterns in the way you walk or can lead to infection. Regular appointments with your Podiatrist can prevent many foot complications.

Ingrown Toenail Surgery

Ingrown Toenail Surgery

Ingrown toenails can be extremely painful. Some ingrown toenails can be conservatively managed with regular Podiatry care. However, if they are constantly getting infected, recurring too often or causing too much pain, nail surgery is a quick, easy and permanent solution to stop the ingrown nail from ever recurring.

We perform this surgery in our clinic under local anaesthesia. We take a small slither of nail from the base of the nail bed and apply a chemical called phenol to prohibit that small slither of nail from growing back. It's a quick procedure; finished in under an hour. We get great results from this surgery which allows you to get back on your feet faster, doing the things you love - pain free!

Children’s Podiatry

Children's feet are constantly growing and changing. During this growth stage, pain and problems can occur. If you’re concerned about your child’s feet, it is important that you get them looked at early on to prevent any long term issues or injuries. At Sarah Sweeney Podiatry, we accurately diagnose and treat your child’s condition in a fun and relaxed environment. Whether your child has pain, you’re concerned about the way they’re walking or you’re looking to prevent future complications, we can help.
