Verruca pedis is a viral infection with the appearance of a vascular wart-like lesion. A verruca is in a growth stage when the vascularity is above the dermis of the skin. This is often a painful and depilating condition. We offer three different treatments, varying from cryogenic topical applications to acid treatments and some less invasive substances for the younger patient.
Corns are basically areas on the foot where the skin has hardened. This is typically around a place where a bone is prominent or protrudes. The hardened skin forms as a natural way of protecting the foot form excessive rubbing or friction. You can get soft corns between the toes and even on the sole of the foot. While generally harmless, they can be uncomfortable. Like all conditions, we do advise that you see us as soon as any foot problems arise.
This is another word for callus – which is similar to a corn in terms of it being hardened skin, formed by constant friction. They are larger than a corn and generally do not cause any discomfort. Should a callus ever cause pain you should call us to arrange an appointment.
Almost everybody can benefit from some sort of support our correction. A gait analysis examines how you walk/run, where you put the weight on your foot and how the pressure is distributed over the body.
Lymphedema is caused by fluid retention and swelling of the feet. You may feel a swelling or pressure in the foot or leg, causing pain. There can, however, be many other symptoms. If you feel anything out of the ordinary, we do suggest that you speak with us.
This is the area that deals with helping to align the feet. If we find something during a gait analysis that requires correction, we can recommend various types of treatments, including insoles. Many people have conditions that can be helped with orthotics, such as shin splints.
The Chiropody Surgery’s unique chiropody ethos means we create completely bespoke treatment plans for customers. In the privacy of our clinic, we have an in-depth consultation with the client to find out all we can about the history of the ailment and we try and diagnose any behaviour that may be exacerbating the problem. After the consultation, we draw up a dedicated treatment plan that is developed around the needs of the patient.
