General Podiatry treats a range of conditions including fungal infections, ingrown toenails, corns and callouses. The aim here is to reduce pain and discomfort which can affect the gait and cause problems in the legs, hips and spine. Good foot hygiene is vital in avoiding infections that can later become more serious problems.
People at particular risk are those who wear work or safety boots for extended periods, as this footwear does not breathe and can cause ongoing problems. Also at risk are people who stand for long periods of time, or who walk a great deal in their daily jobs – like nurses, teachers, retail and hospitality workers. Our Podiatrist can provide advice on the best footwear and foot care for people in these types of professions, as well as treatment for all types of foot-care problems including plantar fasciitis, adult flat foot and heel pain.
