 What We Treat

 

HEEL Pain

Do you have pain in the heel of your foot?

It could be going up the back of your leg or shooting towards your toes.

You could experience pain after periods of rest. It could be either constant pain or a sharp shooting pain when walking.

Don’t leave your pain untreated as it can get worse and affect other areas of your body as you compensate to avoid the area of pain.

We can help with our services that treat heel pain:

Ankle or Achilles Pain

Have you injured your ankle or achilles playing sport or simply twisted your ankle?

Do you experience a deep pain within your ankle? This could have developed over time due to improper footwear or poor muscle strength.

Do you have pain that builds up over time during your day? It could range from a dull ache to a sharp pain either inside or outside of the ankle.

We can help with our services that treat ankle and achilles pain:

Forefoot or toe pain

Do you experience pain between your toes?

You could feel this when wearing shoes, it can feel like you have got a stone in your shoes or like a pebble between your toes. It gets worse during the heat and it can feel like pins and needles.

It can increase during the day when walking and sometimes can become a shooting pain when walking.

We can help with our services that treat forefoot and toe pain:

 

VERRUCAS

Do you have a sharp and uncomfortable pain on the sole of your foot? You may be unsure if this is a corn or it could be a verruca.

Do you feel a lot of pain when walking and when you have your feet up?

Have you tried treatments with GP or home freezing but it hasn’t helped?

We can help with our specialist Verruca services:

Corns, CALLUSES, cracked heels

Corns if left untreated will continue to grow, become more painful and ultimately be harder to treat taking longer.

Calluses left untreated on heels can develop into cracked heels and take longer to treat and heal.

Cracked heels if left untreated can increase the risk of infection to the skin which could ultimately lead to conditions like cellulitis and infections of the skin moving up the leg.

We can help remove corns, callouses and cracked heels:

Ingrown or problematic toenails

Are you feeling a swelling, pressure or increased sensitivity in your toe? You could have an ingrown toenail.

Do you have nails that have grown thick?

Do you have a white or yellow discolouration on the toenail, could be thick and crumbly? This could be a fungal infection and needs immediate attention to prevent further damage.

Do you have injured nails? Have you kicked the furniture or stubbed your toe?

Or if you simply can’t reach your toe nails they can be cut and pedicured professionally for you, as well as any issues dealt with at the same time. We have special rates for SuperGold card holders.

We can help with our specialist toenail services:

Shock Wave Therapy is suitable for soft tissue and pain. The device delivers a pressure wave to the points of injury, breaks up scar tissue and speeding up recovery. Shock Wave Therapy feels like a light pressure, a vibration and is painless. Treatment provides immediate relief and loosens up the muscles or joints involved in the area of pain.

We often start with Shock Wave Therapy to break up the scar tissue then using Laser Therapy to repair and strengthen the area.

Laser Therapy is totally painless, it uses infrared light to stimulate the cells and speed up healing. Laser Therapy is well suited to soft tissue and joint pain, it helps to reduce inflammation and swelling.

Through the stimulation of cells it speeds up the healing, repair and strengthening process.

Often used in conjunction with Shock Wave Therapy (used first to break down the scar tissue), Laser Therapy helps to speed up the healing to repair and strengthen the area.
