No matter how big or small your foot or lower limb problem – we pride ourselves in fast and accurate diagnosis allowing you to achieve your desired goal.

Here’s a brief overview of the treatments that we offer.

Children’s (Paediatric) Podiatry

We are committed to providing the best environment and treatment for children’s foot problems. These can encompass a wide range of conditions including flat feet to heel pain (Sever’s disease), curly toes to shin splints, in-toeing to tip toe walking, co-ordination disorders to hypermobility.

Biomechanics / Musculoskeletal assessment / Gait analysis

Biomechanics is the application of mechanical principles to biological systems. By giving you a thorough musculoskeletal assessment, analysing your gait, barefoot and in your trainers, and by working through your training programme, our aim would be to identify the injured structures and then decide on an appropriate treatment plan.

Sports injuries and rehabilitation

If you play a sport or purely lead an active lifestyle, there is always the potential that you could become injured. With our comprehensive strength and conditioning programme and bespoke rehabilitation plan, we can get you competing again pain free.

Orthoses / orthotic prescription

Once we have undertaken a biomechanical assessment, if an orthoses is required, a prescription will be formulated. Whether this be for a simple insole, off-the-shelf device or a fully bespoke custom made orthoses, the aim will be to reduce forces affecting the injured tissues or structures.

Minor surgery for ingrowing toenails

In-growing toenails are extremely painful and if a course of antibiotics or simple nail care has not resolved the problem, then nail surgery will be required. This can easily be achieved in the clinic by removal of the offending portion of nail under local anaesthetic and then the application of a caustic to prevent any regrowth, with a healing time of approximately 4-6 weeks.

Diabetic foot problems

We undertake diabetic foot screening for our diabetic patients, as they may be at a higher risk of issues with their blood supply (vascular complications) and/or a lack of sensation (neuropathy) in their feet, if their diabetic control is poor. These areas may deteriorate over time, so a regular check up with your podiatrist is essential.

Routine podiatry

This may involve toenail cutting, reducing thickened nails, corns and callous management (via debridement and enucleation using a scalpel, which is a pain free process), fungal nail treatment (using either nail lacquers, anti-fungal sprays or anti-fungal oral medication), and fungal skin infections (“Athlete’s foot”).

Verrucae management

Verrucae pedis are a benign tumour, caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) and should resolve of their own accord. Unfortunately some are painful and spread, therefore requiring intervention from our team to resolve them. We offer different types of acid treatment as well as cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen freezing) which have a high resolution rate.

Footwear advice

Getting the correct footwear is fundamental when it comes to podiatry treatments and intervention. Whether they are too wide or too narrow, we offer a footwear advice service as part of all our treatment programmes.
