Podiatry/Chiropody

There’s no difference between a podiatrist and chiropodist, but podiatrist is a more modern name.

Podiatrists are health care professionals who have been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, relieve pain and treat infections. They work with people of all ages but play a particularly important role in helping older people to stay mobile and, therefore, independent.

Even if your feet are generally in good condition, you might consider having a single session of podiatry to have the hard skin on your feet removed and your toenails clipped. Podiatrists can give you and your family advice on how to look after your feet and what type of shoes to wear.

WHAT IS SWIFT®?2018-05-08T16:19:02+01:00

Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licensed for the general treatment of verrucas and warts in Podiatry and Dermatology. Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue.

DOES IT HURT?2018-05-07T13:08:10+01:00

Like many treatments for skin lesions, some minor discomfort may be experienced. Before treatment your podiatrist or dermatologist may decide to reduce the lesion with a blade. Pain levels vary from person to person but most people undergoing Swift liken it to a pain similar to an injection or a scratch, lasting 2 – 3 seconds then quickly subsiding.

WHAT CAN I DO AFTER TREATMENT?2018-05-07T13:09:49+01:00

In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not prevent you undertaking normal daily activities.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?2018-05-07T13:11:00+01:00

This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. In some cases, you may need more than one treatment (these can be from 14 days to over a month apart depending on the response). Your Podiatrist or Dermatologist will be able to discuss this with you.

CAN ANYONE RECEIVE THIS TREATMENT?2018-05-07T13:10:55+01:00

With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment. Your Podiatrist or Dermatologist will carry out an assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this.

Podiatrists can also supply orthotics, which are tailor-made insoles, padding and arch supports to relieve arch or heel pain. You put the orthotic device into your shoe to re-align your foot, take pressure off vulnerable areas of your foot, or simply to make your shoes more comfortable.

  • Toenail Problems
  • Corns and Calluses
  • Verrucas
  • Athlete’s Foot
  • Dry & Cracked Heels
  • Flat Feet
