Our Treatments

 

Routine Chiropody

Routine Chiropody is a term for the general maintenance of your foot health. This may include the trimming of toenails, callus debridement and general advice. Each patient is advised to attend on a regular basis for a routine chiropody appointment which is usually every 6 – 8 weeks. A routine treatment usually lasts about 30 minutes. A typical treatment will begin with some questions from the chiropodist / podiatrist about your general health and any medication you are taking. Common treatments in a routine session would be nail cutting, nail reduction, ingrown toenail management, corn enucleation, and callus debridement.
Our professional team will work closely with you, helping you to achieve the outcome you want from your treatment.

Verruca Treatments

Verrucae are a common complaint amongst children and adults. A verruca is a small skin lesion which is commonly found on the bottom surface of the foot. The lesion is usually approximately 1cm in diameter but can be larger.This is common in all environments but does not readily attack the skin. Verrucae are commonly contracted in communal places such as swimming pools, showers and changing areas. This is why children are more at risk of contracting verrucae in school changing rooms and swimming pools.After the appointment our Podiatrist will advise you when to make another appointment for your next treatment session. The treatment for a verruca usually takes between 2 – 3 visits depending on the severity.

Diabetic Treatments

Diabetes is characterised by high levels of sugar in the blood due to a lack or deficiency of insulin. Diabetes affects the body in many ways and these complications can affect your feet. If you are diabetic it is essential that you have regular chiropody check-ups.Our Podiatrists can monitor circulation or sensory changes and can give you lots of advice for good foot health.

Biomechanical Assessment

A biomechanical assessment is very beneficial if you are experiencing pain in your feet or lower limbs but no cause has been established, e.g. heel pain (plantar fasciitus), fatigue in legs or feet, big toe joint pain. The assessment involves a detailed examination of the gait cycle and of the lower limbs, looking at their structure, alignment, strengths and weaknesses. It is important to examine the lower limbs as a whole because they are closely connected and pain in one area can be due to a weakness or structural problem in another area. Children who have "flat feet" or pain or fatigue also benefit from this assessment and this is the best time to treat such conditions.

Nail Surgery

Nail Surgery is indicated for several painful nail conditions, commonly in-growing and/or involuted nails.An in-growing toe-nail is one where the nail has either  broken away or been cut incorrectly leaving a rough shoulder or nail spike.  This may then penetrate the soft tissue of the toe, in the nail groove, as it grows.  Thus leading to an acutely painful, and often infected, toe. Most nail conditions can be dealt with conservatively, i.e. without surgery, and, where appropriate, this would always be the first choice of treatment.  However, in situations where the problem persists or fails to respond, nail surgery might be indicated. In all cases our Chiropodist / Podiatrist will advise and will be happy to discuss options available.
