Fungal Nail Test 

Fungal infections of the foot are caused by a group of fungal micro-organisms called dermatophytes. Dermatophytes can affect the foot in many ways; however, the most common conditions seen are athlete’s foot (also known as Tinea Pedis) and Onychomycosis which is a fungal infection of the toenail. 

 A fungal nail is characterised by:

·         Colour changes

·         Debris underneath the nail

·         Odour

·         Thickening or sometimes thinning of the nail

Our quick, simple and painless In Tray Fungal Diagnostic Test will be able to detect and diagnose a fungal infection. 

How it works:

We place a sample of your toe nail into the In Tray and if a fungal infection is present we are able to grow the fungus.  This takes approximately fourteen days.

 

 This shows a positive result for fungal infection

Clearanail - Treatment for Fungal Nails

Clearanail is an exciting new product for treating Fungal Nail (Onychomycosis).  The treatment is based upon Controlled Micro Penetration (CMP) technology  which allows access to the areas of infection without destroying the nail.  The device used for this treatment is computer controlled and is completely safe, virtually painless and quick. 

The treatment involves drilling very small holes of 0.4mm diameter into the infected nail. (The equipment contains special sensors which sense when the drill has reached the other side of the nail, the drill retracts back into the handpiece, thereby ensuring that the drill never pierces the skin.) The micro holes then allow a powerful anti fungal agent to be sprayed into the holes which enables the medication to actually penetrate the heart of the infection. A single use disposable component is use for each treatment to prevent risk of cross-infection.  

 

 Fast - results are usually visible in 2-8 weeks
    Single treatment

      Effective - holes greatly increase the efficiency of treatments.
     CMP prevents injury to soft tissue as 'only the nail is penetrated'.
     Simple to use 'Fully automated fail safe system'.

Swift Microwave Therapy (SMT)- Treatment for Verrucae and Warts

SMT is a special hand held probe which delivers a precise highly controlled microwave energy to the skin treating the affected tissue.  

                                                                           

                                                  

  

As the microwaves travels into the tissue, water molecules begin colliding and creating localised heat energy which then quickly destroys all infected tissue within predetermined depth. In just seconds the treatment is complete and the healing cascade begins immediately. Treated tissue is quickly replaced, repaired and regenerated. 

Like may treatments for skin lesions, there maybe some minor discomfort experienced.  Pain levels vary from person to person but most people undergoing Swift liken it to a pain similar to an injection or a scratch, lasting 2-3 seconds then quickly subsiding. 

You may need more then one session  depending on how you respond to the treatment (these can be from 14 days to over a month again depending on your response.) 

For further information please call. 

 

 Wilde Pedique - (CNR)

Wilde Pedique nail refurbishment is a modern way of treating a fungal nail as well as giving it an aesthetically pleasing look. Wilde Pedique is specifically used for correcting and restoring the toenails. There is no odour or discolouration, and it will not damage the natural nail as it grows.  The anti-fungal properties treat the fungal nail as well as providing protection from any further infections that may occur.

Depending on the nail damaged by the fungus, the full nail or only part of the nail can be treated with the Wilde Pedique. This treatment is suitable for people of all ages, diabetics, and individuals that undertake a lot of activities and sports.

Additional Treatments Which Are Available at the Clinic: 

Amanda Martin who joins us on Mondays, is our Clinical Acupuncturist, she specialises in TCM clinical Acupuncture, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Acupressure.

Acupuncture 

Acupuncture can treat pain in the back, neck, knees and shoulders.  It can help alleviate stress, anxiety, depression, muscular pain, sleeping problems, and provide relief from joint pain, menstrual, menopausal and gynaecological problems. 

Reflexology 

Reflexology is a massage of the feet incorporating aromatherapy oils.  Manipulation of the feet helps with mobilisation of the joints, freeing up muscles and tendons.  It also opens up the acu points on the feet, allowing qi and energy to flow (circulation and blood flow). Many people come for reflexology with a variety of different issues - physical, mental and emotional disorders. 

Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a form of Japanese bodywork or acupressure which stimulates the body's natural healing ability.  It involves gentle finger pressure on acu points together with gentle holding techniques. Many people come for shiatsu with a variety of different issues - physical, mental or emotional disorders.
