Are you one of the millions of people who suffer from discoloured, thickened or crumbling nails? Fungal nail infections are caused by the same infection which causes Athlete's Foot. Once the infection gets into the nail root topical treatments cannot reach it and pills often don’t work and carry risks to the liver.
Your Podiatrist can now resolve fungal nail infections safely and painlessly. At Trinity Podiatry Clinic we can now offer “Clearanail” treatment, a clinically proven and innovative new concept invented in Britain. This treatment has been developed using Controlled Micro Penetration of the fungal nail. This treatment creates micro pathways into the nail plate allowing deeper access to the areas of fungal infection without damaging the nail bed underneath. Each of the tiny holes can be drilled in less than 5 seconds by the intelligent drill, which can sense when it is through the nail plate and therefore does not cause damage to the nail bed beneath. The micro holes allow the topical treatment, Terbinafine spray applied twice daily, to reach the fungal infection more quickly and effectively.
Visible results are seen within two weeks and the average cost to the patient for complete treatment is available at a fraction of the cost of painful laser treatments! We recommend between 2 and 4 treatments on a month to 6 week interval, at a cost of £105 each treatment. Resolution of the nail infection depends on the degree of infection, the number of nails infected and which nails are infected, as a big toe nail takes around 9 to 18 months and a small nail 6 to 12 months to grow from start to finish. Nail growth is also dependent on the state of the nail prior to infection, circulation, time of year and temperature. A treatment video can be viewed here

The pronated foot, is one in which the heel bone angles inward and the arch tends to collapse. (A "knock-kneed" person probably has overly pronated feet.) Pronation flattens the arch as the heel strikes the ground in order to absorb shock. Excessive pronation can lead to foot pain as well as knee pain, shin pain, Achilles tendinitis, posterior tibial tendinitis, soft tissues over stretching, corns & callus, back & buttock pain and plantar fasciitis or heel pain. This causes the joint surfaces to function at unnatural angles to each other. When this happens, joints that should be stable become very loose and unlocked and ankle sprains can occur. At first, excessive pronation may cause fatigue. As the problem gets worse, strain on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the foot and lower leg can cause permanent problems and deformities.
