Basketball Injuries - What To Look Out For On The Court!
We love basketball - and we know that many of you do too. It’s fast-paced, it requires great precision, teamwork, forward-thinking and it keeps you on the edge of your seat when they shoot for the hoop in those crucial last few seconds of play! With this excitement also comes the risk of injury that can see players sitting on the sideline.
Avoiding Common Netball Injuries This Season
Netball is a much-loved sport enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of Australians each year. In fact, it’s the top team sport for women and girls according to Australian Sports Commission, who found in a survey conducted a few years ago that just under 900,000 women and girls participated in Netball annually.

Comparing Fungal Nail Treatments - Which is the Best?
Lunula Laser - Before & 6 Months After
Fungal nail infections have been a serious problem for people worldwide, with up to 25% of people affected at any one time. This high prevalence is contributed to by the easy spread of foot fungus through shared floors and surfaces, as well as the low efficacy and success rate of many available antifungal treatments.
Having patients come in for their follow-up appointments after having their Lunula Laser treatments are a real pleasure as a podiatrist. We get to see patients that were originally embarrassed and unhappy about the state of their toenails grow confidence and happiness with their feet with every appointment.
Lunula Laser is the BEST Treatment for Fungal Nail Infections on the Market. Here’s Why!
The last year has seen us grow with excitement as we’ve watched countless patients develop clear, healthy nails after using the innovative Lunula laser. We’ve got to admit - it’s pretty awesome to see a condition that was previously VERY difficult to successfully treat, now become very simple to treat and for the process to appear, at least to the naked eye, very easy and simple too.
Tips for recovering well after your running or walking event!
You trained for weeks and months to participate in your race or event and all of the hard work has paid off! You’ve done it. It’s an amazing effort and as podiatrists we’re constantly inspired by all of those that commit to these events, whether they’re for a personal goal, a charity fundraiser, or just for fun! We saw a lot of this in the recent Peak 2 Park Toowoomba and are stoked with the outcome.
