During your initial consultation the podiatrist will go through your medical history and the medication you may be taking.
You will then have a full foot assessment, which includes:
This means we will check your pulses, blood circulation, sensation of your feet to see how your nerve endings are working and the condition of your skin. Podiatrists are highly trained to spot any signs or symptoms that your feet may present and you may not be aware of. This is a very important part of the initial consultation as it gives us an overview of your foot health, especially if you are diabetic. Following the consultation your podiatrist will treat you accordingly.
Initial Consultation £50
General Podiatry Treatments (30 mins) from £42
Cracked heels, also known as heel fissures, are a common foot condition, that can cause discomfort or even pain. This is a result of dry skin and accompanied by thickened skin, plus sometimes yellow or brown calluses around the heel edge. Most of the times, the only problem with cracked heels is their appearance. However, in some cases, the condition can be severe if the cracks become infected. these cracks in the heels can get deep, become painful, when standing and putting pressure, and these may sometimes even bleed. If you experience soreness, redness, swelling, or severe pain in any area of the foot, please visit us.
Corns are small lumps of hard skin that can be painful if left untreated, especially if they are on the bottom of your feet or between your toes.
Callus: are larger patches of rough, hard skin on your feet. These are mainly on pressure areas of your foot.
IMPORTANT: If you have diabetes, heart disease or problems with your circulation, do not try to treat corns and calluses yourself. These conditions can make foot problems more serious. Visit us.
