Company description
GENERAL FOOTCARE Routine treatments usually include the removal of painful lesions such as corns and callus as well as nail care. CORNS AND CALLUS Corns and callus are a common problem that can be very painful. These can be treated and measures put in place to limit discomfort and help to prevent reoccurrence. INGROWN AND THICKENED TOE NAILS Toe nails can become thickened and curved in becoming painful and difficult to manage. They can usually be treated without any discomfort. Occasionally, they need to be removed permanently which involves a minor surgical procedure under local anaesthesia.
FLAT FEET AND SPORTS INJURIES (biomechanics) The way we stand, walk and run all has an impact on our lower limb and foot health. If someone has poor foot posture or mechanics, this can lead to a host of problems involving the foot, leg, knee, hip and back. Common foot problems such as flat feet, heel pain and plantar fasciitis can be treated following a biomechanical examination, where your walking (gait) pattern, posture, joint condition and alignment and muscle power are all looked at. If a problem is found, then sometimes bespoke orthoses can be prescribed to improve your foot posture. Sometimes more basic insoles, podiatry treatments, stretching exercises and footwear advice can be used to alleviate pain.
DIABETIC FOOT CARE If you have diabetes you should have your feet checked at least annually by an appropriately qualified podiatrist. Andrew Barker has specialised in the field for over 18 years working as part of a specialist diabetes team. If you have any diabetic foot problems please make an appointment, or if you simple want your feet assessed and checked why not book in for a diabetic screening appointment. BUNIONS AND HAMMER TOES Bunions and hammer toes can be extremely painful and can lead to painful callus and corns. They can often be treated without the need for considering surgery.
