Podiatry/Chiropody treatment is aimed at ensuring that the feet are as healthy and functioning as they should be. A Podiatrist is not concerned by how pretty a foot looks - we want the foot to function correctly and be as healthy as it can be!

When you visit a Podiatrist for the first time you will be asked some general questions about your health. Some health problems and medications affect the health of the lower limbs and feet.

Routine Podiatry/Chiropody treatment can help with the following problems:

  • Callus- This is an excessive build-up of skin (hyper-keratosis). Generally the cause is pressure. This pressure can come from various causes examples of these being foot wear & foot shape.

  • Corns - Corns are a central build-up of skin. The area where a corn develops is normally where there is a high area of pressure. Typically areas where a corn develops are over bony prominences, on the bottom of the foot and in-between digits.

  • Nail problems - Problems with nails can be far and wide ranging from in-grown nails, Psoriatic nails, fungal nails infections and general help to managing nail care.

  • Dermatological conditions - Verrucas, Psoriasis, Eczema and Athletes foot to name a few!

  • Diabetic foot care - Routine monitoring of foot health and at-risk factors.

  • Foot wear and general foot care advice.
