The strongest laser within 60 miles!

Fungal nail infections can affect both the hands and feet. Left untreated they can become not only unsightly, but can also cause pain and discomfort. Until recently the only options available were topical or oral medications, which are not only limited in their efficacy, they also caused unwanted and unpleasant side-effects. With the S30 PODYLAS™ laser system, Forest Hill Podiatry’s expert technicians offer a fast, effective and safe alternative, with visible, fast and pain-free results.

The S30 PODYLAS™  laser produces a gentle targeted, thermal effect that penetrates the nail bed, killing the bacteria or fungi that cause the infection, without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue. With the ability to treat up to ten digits in as little as 30 minutes with no pain (the worst any of our clients have felt is a small “pricking” sensation) and none of the side-effects, it far surpasses “traditional” fungal nail treatments in terms of speed, comfort or the end result.

Not All Laser Treatments are Equal…

Numerous chiropody & podiatry clinics now offer laser treatment, so why choose Forest Hill Practice?

In short: We have the most powerful laser in the area (in an approximate 60-mile radius) and therefore achieve superior results. The combination of our team’s many years’ experience in podiatry and the state-of-the-art technology and the convenient, pain-free treatment provided by the S30 PODYLAS™ laser system produce results that exceed those achieved by other clinics with less advanced laser treatments.

Pain when sitting or standing?

Patellofemoral pain syndrome is one of the most common musculoskeletal complaints that physiotherapists treat and 25% of the popluation will have this diagnosed at some point in their life (McConnell 1986). Questions we as physiotherapists will ask are:

1) Do you have pain when sitting (cinema sign)
2)Do you have pain going up or down the stairs?

Cinema sign is a build up of pressure when the knee is flexed as there is a strong force compressing the PFj (patellofemoral joint) as a result of the quads becoming taught. If worse when the patient crosses their legs then the ITB is also a culprit to tightness.
We can then stretch these structures and release them with manual techniques or the use of a foam roller.

Pain on going up stairs is common with those who have poor gluteal control (mainly GLUTEUS MAXIMUS) as this works to stabilise the pelvis and prevent hip adduction ( falling inwards) and in turn overloads the lateral part of the PFJ.

Pain on descent on stairs is much more common as patella maltracking, trochlea movement, foot biomechanics and eccentric quadriceps function are the main culprits here.

This is a very common problem that the Physiotherapists at Forest Hill can treat effectively giving you suitable home exercise plans and providing you with specific manual therapy techniques.

Pilates & Pregnancy

Here at Forest Hill Practice we are now teaching ante- and post-natal pilates classes, small groups and taught by a chartered Physiotherapsit. Exercise is important durning pregnancy but the right form of exercise! The first trimester is an important time for the foetal development and also the time where miscarriage is most likey. Therefore exercise is gentle and will focus on building activation of the pelvic floor and training good posture.

Pilates tones and conditions the pelvic floor muscles!

The second trimester is very different from the first, most women have more energy and it is important to continue to strengthen and condition the pelvic floor and pilates will help to boost circulation of lymph fluid.

The third trimester most women are tired and breathless and develop odema, constipation and heartburn. Gentle pilates can help all the above along with preparing the woman for labour as some postions in pilates actually prepare for the labour stages.
