Routine Chiropody/Corns and Calluses Corns and calluses are caused by reaction of the skin to the pressures on it. This can be caused by pressure from shoes, sometimes there is a structural cause. Corns and calluses can be painlessly removed. We can give advice or provide treatment to target the cause and aim to prevent further recurrence.

Nail Surgery Ingrowing toenails can occur when a nail has been damaged or is deformed. The nail grows into the skin causing pain and sometimes leading to infection. This condition can be treated by cutting the nails, but surgery may be necessary to prevent recurrence. Surgery is performed under local anaesthesia. Usually only part of the offending nail is removed, although it is possible to remove the whole nail if it is very deformed.

Verrucae Removal Verrucae are caused by a viral infection. In most cases the verruca is painless and, given time, will resolve without treatment. Painful or spreading verrucae can however cause distress. There are a wide range of verrucae treatments available including electrosurgery, traditional acid treatments, herbal remedies, low level laser therapy and surgical removal. These treatments are carried out under local anesthetic.

Biomechanics The biomechanical examination is to assess foot and lower limb functions. Mainly foot pain is caused by poor foot posture or other structural problems. Common problems include heel pain, pain in the ball of the foot and flat feet. If the foot is out of alignment it can result in pain or injury in the foot, knee, hip and lower back.

Diabetic Footcare People diagnosed with diabetes can develop foot complication including loss of sensation in the feet. We advise people with diabetes should have annual foot assessments to monitor any loss of sensation. Numb feet should be always protected and checked regularly for damage. Diabetes can affect the blood supply to the feet, causing a delay in the healing of any wound and increasing the risk of infection. The circulation to the feet is also checked during a diabetic foot assessment.
