Introduction To Skin & Nail Care
It is often the small things that can cause discomfort and reduced quality of life.
We don’t understand how important our feet are until we are unable to walk or wear shoes without pain.
The Foot Practice can assess, diagnose and treat an array of foot and lower limb conditions, both common and rare.
Whether you have painful corns, thickened and difficult to cut nails, or pain due to arthritic changes to the joints in your feet, our podiatrists can help you.
Here at The Foot Practice, we also provide wellness and maintenance examinations such as diabetic neurological and circulatory foot screening and education for the prevention of diabetic foot complications.
The Foot Practice can provide the following podiatry services:
- Skin and nail assessment
- Corns and callus treatment
- Treatment of warts
- Treatment for diseased nails
- Treatment of ingrown toenails
- Treatment of fungal skin and nail conditions
- Diabetic foot screening and wound management
Ingrown toenails are one of the most common conditions treated at The Foot Practice.
Our treatment is safe and effective, often being undertaken as day surgery. Although surgery can take place during the first consultation, patients are encouraged to contact us first to discuss their problem.
Corns are areas of hard skin caused by prominent bony lumps and bumps, often in association with claw and hammertoe deformities.
In most cases, corns can be permanently removed with excellent cosmetic results and relief from painful symptoms.
Verrucae (Plantar Wart)
Verrucae (or plantar warts) are a contagious (viral) and usually painful wart on the sole of the foot. The Foot Practice sees many patients who are frustrated with the condition, having tried all manner of treatments at other clinics.
We are pleased that we have an extremely high success rate with our formula for the management of plantar warts.
