Our Foot Treatments

Our feet are one of the hardest working parts of our body, but can be one of the most neglected. Having healthy feet enables us to keep fit and well. If our feet are injured or in pain, we can’t walk, do sports or even relax properly. That's why we offer a range of treatments in order to keep your feet in a healthy condition.

  • General Nail Care

    Nails should be cut following the shape of the toe, leaving no sharp edges and should not be cut too short. It is advisable to see a Podiatrist for any problems with nails.

  • Corns

    A hard corn is a small patch of thickened dead skin with a small plug of skin in the centre. A soft corn has a much thinner surface which appears white and rubbery and usually occurs between the toes. Seed corns are clusters of tiny corns which usually appear on the soles of the feet.

  • Callus and cracked heels

    Calluses are caused by pressure or friction which produces hard skin. It can cause a burning sensation on the soles of your feet. Cracked heels, or heel fissures, are commonly caused by dry skin and callus around the rim of the heel. When the fissures or cracks are deep they are painful to stand on and the skin may bleed. In severe cases they may become infected.

  • Verrucae

    Verrucae are caused by an infection of the skin by a virus called the Human Papilloma Virus which is highly contagious. This explains why people often catch verrucae in communal changing areas like those at swimming pools and gym clubs. We offer various treatments which our Podiatrists will be happy to discuss with you at your appointment.

  • Nail surgery

    Ingrowing or involuted toe nails can become very painful or prone to recurring infections. Surgery may be recommended in certain cases. Depending on the severity, this may involve removing part of the nail, or the whole nail. This would be carried out after using a local anaesthetic to numb your toe. A chemical is also applied to help prevent the nail growing back.

  • Marigold therapy

    Marigold Therapy is a complementary therapy used to treat disorders of the skin, bones, and nails of the foot. This includes treatment of conditions such as verrucae, fungal infections, bunions and chronic fibrous corns and callus. It is suitable for all age groups and is a gentle, non-invasive treatment.

    Marigold Therapy medication has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy and is produced under British Patent and Licence from the Department of Health Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency.

    Dorothy has been using Marigold therapy successfully since 2004, following training in The Marigold Clinic, at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital.

  • Acupuncture

    Acupuncture is a form of treatment that involves inserting very fine needles through the skin at specific points. Research suggests that it can help to relieve pain.

  • Biomechanics
