Delivering pain relief & fast recovery for a variety of foot conditions, including heel and arch pain, bunions, and warts

A general podiatry treatment is usually a general footcare appointment to assess the cause of pain and foot issues, develop a plan to reduce the recurrence of the issue and general tidy up of your feet. During a general treatment, one of our podiatrists will discuss your concerns, perform a thorough assessment, then explain what has happened, why it is happening and discuss best options and make any recommendations for the best treatment.

Podiatry treatment usually involves tidying up the toenails and the removal of any corns, calluses, and hard or cracked skin. Corns and calluses are hard, painful areas of skin that often develop on the feet due to pressure or friction. They occur as a protective response to areas under continued pressure or friction and can make walking and footwear uncomfortable.

Along with dealing with any painful or difficult toenails, our podiatrists will remove any thick skin to relieve pressure on the tissues that lie beneath. People should not try to cut out corns and callus themselves. This could result in more pain, nasty cuts and potentially cause infections. Our podiatrists are extremely experienced and will skillfully deal with any painful, unsightly or unwanted areas, leaving your feet feeling fresh, and healthy.

Why Is Regular Foot Care Important?​

General podiatry footcare and regular foot maintenance forms an important part of podiatry practice. The role of the Podiatrist involves monitoring for and identifying the warning signs or presence of serious issues that can affect the foot and leg resulting in disability.

Along with the regular upkeep of foot health and hygiene, general podiatry treatment also includes the continued monitoring of the blood flow and sensation levels of the foot and leg. By picking up on early signs and symptoms, our podiatrists can work to help prevent serious issues from developing or help monitor and maintain them once they have occurred.

Shockwaves are characterized by jump change in pressure, high amplitude and non-periodicity. 

The kinetic energy of the projectile, created by compressed air, is transferred to the transmitter at the end of the applicator and further into the tissue.

Biomechanical Assessments

Biomechanics abnormalities is a major contributing factor in the development of pain and injury in the feet, ankles, knees and legs. A biomechanical analysis aims to identify the injury and determine if current activities or movements are contributing to the problem. A management plan is then formulated to reduce damage caused by stresses and loads, providing an opportunity for the feet and legs to heal and strengthen.

Sports Injury Rehabilitation

Running creates significant ground forces that need to be absorbed by the feet, and repetitive overuse or an imbalance in biomechanical function can result in pain and injury. It’s no surprise, therefore, that some of the most common sports injuries are directly attributed to an athlete’s movements while impacting on the ground or playing surface. Progressive technology and focused training provides sports podiatrists with the tools to undertake a comprehensive biomechanical analysis of the feet.
