What we can help with:
Heel Pain: One of the most common foot problems, plantar fasciitis, can be treated in a variety of ways. Let us help you get back on your feet as soon as possible.
Diabetic Footcare: Feet are for life, and diabetic foot complications can threaten this. Lower the risk of serious injury with our advanced foot screenings, treatments and orthopaedic footwear.
Fungal Nail Laser Treatment: Fungal Nails affects 10% of the population. Don’t waste time with paint-on treatments. Treat fungal nail once and for all with laser treatment. Our podiatrist Tom is a highly trained laser technician and has helped with hundreds of cases of Onychomycosis.
Sports Podiatry: If you have sore feet after exercise, walking or playing a round of golf we can help. Our biomechanical assessment helps us to diagnose and find the cause of your heel, arch, foot or lower limb pain.
Children’s Podiatry: Children’s feet are different to that of adults. When they are young, their bones are still very soft and are therefore more easily affected by abnormal pressure and forces. It is important to nurture our children’s feet as most of the issues we see in adults have stemmed from issues as children.
