Podiatry is the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the feet, ankle and lower limbs. Treatments provided by podiatrists range from non-invasive shoe inserts and orthotics to general foot care, such as the treatment of skin problems & ingrown toenails. Specialised services provide care for more long-term health conditions such as preventative diabetic foot care and rehabilitation after surgical procedures.
People seek podiatry treatment for a variety of reasons. They may be suffering pain or discomfort in their feet or lower limbs, wish to improve their posture, or prevent or reduce the risk of injury. People who are active in sports can benefit from regular podiatry assessment. We also treat people who have been referred from other healthcare professionals, such as doctors, orthopaedic surgeons, osteopaths and physiotherapists. We also stock a range of high-quality foot care products, including heel balms, creams, and verruca treatments.

Preventative foot health checks-ups look for a wide variety of foot related issues. Identifying poor/incorrect foot function is important and can be caused by ill-fitting shoes, an injury or stress or even structural problems in the hips, knees or ankle. Poor foot function can also have a knock-on effect on your posture and cause pain elsewhere in the body, so regular foot checkups are important.

Cryotherapy is the application of very low temperatures that can be used to treat viral infections of the skin such as verrucae and finger warts. Using liquid nitrogen, the affected areas can safely be treated with minimal risk of scarring. This commonly used technique has proven efficiency when treating persistent verrucae, especially when alternative methods have failed.
The advantages of using cryotherapy include high success rates and low complication rates with minimal disruption to your lifestyle. The amount of time taken to freeze the area will vary depending on its size and location. Larger lesions will require more treatment and longer appointments.
Cryotherapy is not always suitable for everyone. Therefore, our podiatrists will advise if cryotherapy is the most effective course of action within your appointment. Express your interest when booking an appointment.
