Treatments

Here, we offer a little more information on some of the treatments we provide. Our patients benefit from a broad range of foot care treatments from simple nail cutting, callus reduction, ingrowing toenails, through to a full biomechanical assessment.

Feel free to call us to discuss your particular needs.

Soft Corns
You may also experience "soft corns"which are typically within the interdigital spaces between our toes. These are the result of skin absorbing moisture, oils and secretions. Our treatments remove corns and we can provide dressings, padding and advice on causal factors.
Hard Corns
Corns can be particularly painful and by their nature, appear in the very places our feet connect with our footwear and the floor. Hard corns are hyperkeratotic lesions or dead nuclei of skin that become embedded in the surrounding tissue and often become covered in hard skin, adding to the discomfort. They are the result of focused pressure on a point and may be due to footwear, lifestyle, mechanical issues or changes in how our foot meets the floor. We will remove or 'enucleate' corns embedded in the skin so that you will regain comfort of that area of your foot. We will also consider the causes and the options available as preventative measures.
Callus
Callus or hard, thickened skin, is also a hyperkeratotic lesion but spread out over an area of our foot. It is result of friction and shearing forces between skin and our footwear. It can appear on any surface and can cause pain and discomfort. Our treatment will remove the callus and offer advice on the causes and potential options to reduce or minimise its formation.
Cracked Heels
Cracked heels can make every step we make feel sore and painful. We can help improve the condition of your skin and reduce discomfort.
Diabetic Foot Care
Those affected by diabetes will have been advised by their doctor or nurse of the importance of looking after their feet. We offer a regular diabetic foot care service to our patients to provide confidence in this aspect of their care needs.
Fungal Nails
Our feet operate in enclosed, humid and moist conditions within our footwear. This can provide the ideal conditions for fungi to grow and an infection in our nails can create problems. We can offer a range of treatments and advise on further treatments you may need to address this condition.
Ingrowing Toenails
Toenails that cut into the surrounding tissue are particularly painful. We can deal with these for you by removing the portion of nail causing the problem, dressing as required and offer advice on continued care of your feet.
Nail Trimming
There may be a number of factors that create thickened nails but hard, thickened nails in our shoes can cause us pain and discomfort. We can reduce nail thickness and advise on the potential causes.
Thickened nails
There may be a number of factors that create thickened nails but hard, thickened nails in our shoes can cause us pain and discomfort. We can reduce nail thickness and advise on the potential causes.
Verrucae
Caused by a viral infection, verrucae are warts that invade your skin. They need to be removed and there are many treatments available via both over the counter treatments from a pharmacist or from ourselves. Additionally, we will seek to pare down the verruca so that it reduces the space it occupies in the skin layer.
Biomechanical Assessment
The way our feet interact with the floor can be affected by a range of factors and in turn, create other issues in our joints and limbs. Our trained and qualified podiatrist can perform a full assessment and prescribe orthotic insoles for your footwear that will alleviate and correct aspects of biomechanical dysfunction.
The treatments above are just a few of the treatments we offer and our team will provide bespoke and individualised treatment plans for your feet to meet your particular needs.
