Routine Foot Care
Our feet often get neglected and if certain ailments are left untreated it can be uncomfortable or even lead to pain.
Some of the most common problems that can be treated within our routine foot care service include:
- Hard skin
- Fungal nails
- Thickened nails
- Cracked heals
- Athlete’s foot
- Verruca Treatment
Verrucas are very common and in some cases can cause considerable pain. They are a viral infection of the skin on the foot and can vary in shape and size. We offer cryotherapy at the clinic which is a method used to eradicate verrucas. Cryotherapy is a procedure that freezes the verruca causing the cells of the virus to be destroyed.
Nail surgery is suitable for those suffering from painful ingrowing toenails. This procedure is a long term solution that stops the ingrowing toenail recurring. Nail surgery uses local anesthetic to numb the toe prior to surgery which makes it a painless procedure. Depending on the severity of the problem the nail will either be partially or fully removed. A chemical solution is then applied to the problem area allowing the nail to grow back correctly.
After the nail surgery has been completed we provide you with all the information you will need with regards to the aftercare of your nail. A follow up appointment will be booked on the day of your surgery and is included in the price of the treatment. The purpose of the follow up appointment is for the podiatrist to check on the progress of the nail and apply a fresh dressing.
Biomechanical assessments are suitable for people who regularly suffer from foot, knee, ankle or hip pain. The main aim of a biomechanical assessment is to determine what is causing your pain. This is achieved through a thorough assessment which focuses on how your body moves.
In many cases foot orthotics are prescribed to give a long term solution for problems caused by abnormalities in the foot. Foot orthotics are placed in the shoes or trainers and help create a normal walking function, with the long term aim of alleviating pain. If foot orthotics are not deemed suitable then our podiatrist will advise you on the next stages to be taken, which may include a referral to another therapist.
