If your nails are yellow and brittle or they seem to be coming away from the toe
You might have Fungal nails. These are one of the most common conditions we see. There are a range of treatments available for this condition depending on what you want to achieve and what suits you.
There are many other ‘common conditions’ which Podiatrists see on a regular basis. We treat these regularly and are very used to seeing feet and dealing with the lower limb (hip and down).
If there is anything problematic with your feet or your legs, it’s important to see a Podiatrist who has rigorous training in the subject, is registered and insured.
To explain things in easier terms. Routine Chiropody/Podiatry is for things you can see that are wrong.
Biomechanics is a branch within Podiatry that generally deals with things that you can’t see like injury and pain.
