Podiatric Medicine

Podiatric Medicine

On average we walk around 110,000 miles in our lifetime, enough to walk around the earth several times. This inevitably leads to potential problems with the feet. Being a professional in foot health a podiatrist will be able to help keep you moving.

One of the most common problems that people suffer from are corns and callus (hard skin). These issues are usually caused by friction and pressure, they can be unsightly and also uncomfortable. A corn is formed by a centralised area of pressure forming a hard cone shaped piece of skin that can be likened to walking on a sharp stone. A podiatrist is able to remove corns and hard skin painlessly leaving your feet feeling smooth and pain free again.

Ingrowing toenails can be extremely painful and can affect our walking and our ability to wear certain shoes. When a nail ingrows it can often be managed conservatively by cutting away the sharp piece of the nail. In some more severe cases we recommend a minor surgical procedure where a larger piece of nail is removed under local anaesthetic, a chemical is then used to permanently stop the nail from re-growing, this then fixes the problem.

Verrucas are a virus that infects the body and can be very difficult to get rid of. Treatment of verrucas often involve using a high concentration of salicylic acid to create an inflammatory response at the site of infection, this will hopefully stimulate the immune system into fighting off the virus and getting rid of the verruca.
Biomechanics looks at the way we move and how internal and external factors act upon the body.
