Do You Experience Heel Pain?

The Foot Group can help

Heel pain is one of the most common, painful foot complaints we see in the clinic. Our team of highly trained Podiatrists have successfully treated thousands of cases and they can certainly treat yours. Call and chat with our receptionist about your condition and to book an appointment.

Do you have trouble with Ingrown Toenails?

Are very painful, and may cause infection, an ingrown toenail is when the nail grows into the skin, usually at the sides of the nail. This irritates the skin, often creating pain, redness, swelling, and warmth in the toe. If an ingrown nail causes a break in the skin, bacteria may enter and cause an infection, which can lead to pus draining from the area.
