Podiatry

A routine Podiatry appointment enables us to maintain your feet on a day to day basis. Throughout your lifetime it’s normal to encounter general foot problems that we can treat via a standard appointment, but this also enables us to diagnose more complex issues and recommend specialized treatment paths.

A Podiatry appointment will last around 30 minutes, we advise routine appointments every 6 weeks where necessary. We’d ask that you attend in the shoes you wear most often and remove all nail varnish in advance.

A full medical history will be taken at your first appointment. The Podiatrist will treat the problem on the day and advise you of any footwear adjustments that you may need to make.

Payment will be taken upon completion of your appointment by CASH ONLY

A podiatry treatment covers a range of common foot ailments that most of us will suffer from at some point in our lifetime.

Some of the common issues our registered podiatrist will deal with are:

Foot & Nail Care

General Podiatry is focused primarily on everyday foot care. It covers a wide array of general maintenance, such as correctly cutting, filing and reducing the thickness of the toe nails, removing areas of hard skin and providing advice on suitable products related to the overall care of your feet. This is increasingly important as we age or suffer reduced mobility as routine foot care becomes very difficult to perform ourselves.

Corns

Corns often occur on weight bearing areas of the foot, or those areas experiencing high pressure. There are several types of corn under these different circumstances, some can be quite passive and cause little practical concern, whilst others can be extremely painful. Either way a corn is a symptom of a specific problem, something we can diagnose and treat appropriately.

Calluses

Calluses are areas of thick yellowing skin on the feet which can make walking very painful. They typically occur on areas of the foot exposed to excessive pressure or friction – there can be a number of reasons for this but a typical situation would be poorly fitting shoes or the thinning of the fatty tissue under the ball of the foot.

Fungal Nail Infection

A very common issue, fungal nail infection affects around 3 in every 100 people in the UK. Toenails can appear yellowy brown in colour and begin to crumble when infected. Although it’s not particularly painful at first, over time as the nails thicken pain can occur as more pressure is placed upon the nail bed.

Athletes Foot

Athletes foot is an infection caused by fungus which can appear in between the toes and on the feet. It can make the skin red, flaky and itchy and as the name suggests those playing regular sport are at particular risk. Whilst with treatment it can clear it up in a matter of days, if misdiagnosed the symptoms can persist for months if not years.

Verrucas

Verrucas are a form of the Human Papiloma virus and are generally contracted at communal places such as swimming pools and changing areas. They are similar in appearance to corns, but have visible small black dots at their centre and can be quite painful.
