Our feet are at the periphery of circulatory and nervous systems and we rely on the correct functioning of all our systems to ensure our feet receive the blood and nerve supply they need. Any problems we encounter with these systems can and does have an impact on proper foot functioning. Work, lifestyle, footwear and mechanical wear on our limbs and joints all affect our foot functioning. Accidents and illness, hospitalisation and decreasing mobility can all affect our feet.
Our team will assess and discuss your needs with you and ensure your treatment provides you with the care you and your feet require.
Yes, of course. We have many patients who need this service and it also affords us the opportunity of checking up on the general condition of your feet. You also get a foot soak, foot massage and our softening and smoothing cream applied in our treatment.

This could be caused by many factors and we would always recommend that you seek the advice of your doctor on a range of issues of this nature. Have you considered that this could be related to your foot arch? A loss of arch places strain and stress on the tendons and muscles in the foot and lower limb and it may be that a simple orthotic insert into your shoe can provide the support you are missing.
Orthotics are inserts into your shoe that alter and correct the biomechanical operation of your foot, ankle and lower limb and how they interact at the point of contact with the floor. Whilst they are applied to your feet, issues with muscular-skeletal problems in your knees, hips and back caused by mechanical functioning can all be addressed. A biomechanical assessment by one of our qualified podiatrists and prescription orthotics can help make the difference.
Diabetes can affect the feeling in your foot and you may have a problem that you are not aware of due to a loss of sensitivity. Problematic healing of blisters, cuts and wounds can all lead to problems and complications such as ulceration.
