The average person walks about 1500 miles a year, yet our feet are often the most neglected part of our body. While they may not require constant attention, issues can arise that need the help of a Podiatrist.
We provide non-surgical treatments for many complaints:
Foot pain affecting how you walk or preventing sports or activities
Ankle or knee pain
Wounds on the foot
Flat/high arched feet, or bunions
Corns, calluses or verruca pedis (warts)
Issues with sensation and blood circulation in the feet
Whatever your foot-related problem, our podiatrists can treat the conditions and can also advise you on how best to manage them effectively on your own.
If you are diabetic, it is especially important to have small foot-related problems dealt with quickly. We advise yearly foot screening to prevent any pressing issues.
Our Podiatrist has a wealth of experience in treating wounds. We are dedicated to reducing further complications. We are continually keeping up to date with the latest medical developments so that we can offer the safest and fastest route to wound healing for our patients.
As children grow, they become more active. Their bodies are developing, and it is not unusual to experience pain in the feet and ankles. Many participate in sports that can also give rise to foot pain and a whole range of foot problems

• Walking with his/her toes pointing outwards or inwards
• Walking on tiptoes
You should also seek advice if your child suffers from:
• Ingrown toenails
• Painful, hard skin
• Verrucae pedis (warts)
• Athletes foot (fungal infection)
Our podiatrist can advise on:
• Stretching or strengthening exercises
