About chiropody/podiatry

Podiatry is a specialist area of healthcare that focuses on preventing, diagnosing and treating conditions associated with the foot and ankle

Our Range Of Treatments

Before we provide any form of treatment we provide an initial consultation, where we discuss the problem and advise the best possible solution. We offer our treatments to people of all ages, however small children have to be accompanied by an adult.

Our chiropody and biomechanical treatments are to prevent problems occurring and to remove any discomfort or pain. Our highly-trained medical team are able to treat the majority of our patients within one visit. We cater to each client individually to meet their particular needs. At our clinic we handle the following:

City foot health is now offering the medical pedicure a treatment which is renowned for creating the perfect sole. The treatment is performed by a qualified and experienced podiatrist and involves a complete overhaul of the feet, addressing the foot in its entirety and the pedicure is performed on a dry foot to ensure exceptionally long-lasting results.

The feet are transformed with the safe surgical removal of all callus and dry skin. The nails are shaped, buffed and re-hydrated leaving the feet rejuvenated, revitalised and glowing

Medical Pedicure
Do you ever wonder why you get hard skin on certain places on your feet? Or why you suffer from persistent ankle, lower back pain, shin splints, heel and arch pain or knee and hip pain? When we stand, walk or run our body has to cope with and compensate for these anomalies. It is these compensations that put structures such as muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons under undue strain as they begin functioning in an abnormal or compromised manner. Over time the structures become inflamed or injured. A Biomechanics assessment is an investigation into your lower limb function – looking closely for abnormalities and compensations. We can look closely into the underlying possible causes of heel pain, knee pain and even back pain. Once we have identified the causes of your problems we can develop a tailor-made treatment plan to improve your symptoms. This may involve one or more of the following: Exercises to stretch or strengthen muscles Orthoses – specially made devices for you to wear inside your shoe to control, realign or cushion the abnormalities.
Bio-Mechanical Assessment:

Referral on to other members of the healthcare team if further specialist advice is needed.

The examination has two parts:
We will take various specific measurements with you laying down and standing up (static assessment). We will normally video you walking so we can understand what is happening during gait – this is called (dynamic assessment).

Footwear advice

This is a skin infection caused by The Human Papilloma Virus. The virus enters the outermost layer of the skin and causes visible lesions to appear on the skin.

In the majority of cases verrucae do not hurt and may resolve without the need for treatment, however in some cases verrucae can cause pain or continue to grow or spread therefore treatment is required.

At City Foot Health we offer a range of verrucae treatments including caustic agents, liquid nitrogen freezing and verruca needling.

Verrucae

Nails from time to time can curve as they grow, this over curvature is known as involution. Involution is not classified as true ingrowing toenail however they can be tender and painful especially if hard skin or corns build down the sides of the nail.
If a toenail penetrates the skin this is known as onychocryptosis – a true ingrowing toenail. This is usually extremely painful and will cause localised swelling and redness in the area next to the nail sometimes accompanied by a discharge or pus.
Both involuted and ingrowing nails can be dealt with by your podiatrist. Conservative management is often sufficient. Some nails benefit from toenail surgery performed by a podiatrist under local anaesthesia, whereby a more long term solution can be offered.
At City Foot Health our podiatrist are trained to administer local anesthesia and perform Nail Surgery

Ingrowing Toenails

Blisters are fluid filled sacs that form beneath the surface layer of the skin. They are usually caused by friction or extremes of temperature such as a scald or a freeze. There are also some dermatological reasons why some people develop blisters such as infection.

Blisters
Bunion (Hallux Abducto Valgus) is the common name for a protruding big toe joint on the side of the foot which can cause difficulty finding shoes of sufficient width and can cause pain and rubbing. A bunion is caused by a displacement of the first metatarsal bone (the long bone in the arch) and its connecting toe bone (called the phalanx). This displacement can be caused as a result of poor footwear including fashion shoes, court shoes or pointed shoes.
Bunion
Sports injuries of the foot, leg, knee and hip joints are common. These sporting injuries can be overuse injuries, acute trauma injuries or other chronic injuries. Overuse Injuries: Common overuse injuries include Plantar Fasciitis (Heel pain), Tendinitis and Bursitis. These injuries are common in the running or sporting population. They are often perceived by the sports player as not having a mechanism of injury – the pain just starts up with no injury, collision or fall being recollected. However overuse injuries are, as the name describes, the outcome of overuse. Overuse can either be attributed to an increase in training schedules or running mileage, such as training for a tournament of a marathon OR can be the result of doing the same activity at the same intensity over several weeks, months or years.
Sports Injuries
Help is at hand. Our podiatrists at City Foot Health are able to assess the biomechanics of the way you walk and run in order to ascertain if the position and movements of the foot, leg, knee and hip are misaligned. If foot and leg posture or positioning is incorrect then the connective structures around all these joints are more likely to become injured through overuse
Treatment and Therapy
Fungal toenails are identifiable by white spots on the surface of toenails, yellow / brown tracks at the end of the nail, similar tracks extending up from the cuticle or crumbling at the nail edges. At their worst they can cause total destruction or deformity of the nail and may spread to other toenails or may spread to the skin of the foot leading to athletes foot.
Many people find fungal infections are very slow to spread and are completely painless. They are very common in active adults and the older person population. As above your podiatrist will determine whether you are suffering from one of the following forms of fungal infection:

White superficial onychomycosis
Distal lateral subungal onychomycosis
Proximal lateral subungal onychomycosis
Total dystrophic onychomycosis
At City Foot Health your podiatrist will discuss with you appropriate treatments having excluded other possibilities which may have led to nail deformity, discolouration or crumbling such as disease processes or trauma.
Fungal Nails
There are nerves in feet which run up towards the toes, finally branching off to give sensation into the toes themselves. Sometimes these nerves can become thickened or inflamed especially between the 3rd or 4th toes and 2nd and 3rd toes. The inflammation or thickening of the nerve is the result of the metatarsal bones, which run alongside the nerves, causing mechanical irritation to the nerve at the level of the main toe joint. This mechanical irritation which predisposes people to neuromas is related to abnormal biomechanics, tight or compressive footwear
Morton’s neuroma
This is an umbrella term that describes pain in the metatarsal area of the forefoot. Abnormal pressure loading can be a common cause of pain in this area which can be attributable to footwear choices, foot posture, reduction of the natural cushion made of fat and fibrous tissue under the ball of the foot or over-use. Metatarsalgia treatment includes possible changes to footwear, cushioning or gel insoles, or even a detailed assessment of walking & foot and leg postures in order to prescribe specialised insoles called orthoses. In some instances referral for surgical management from a podiatric surgeon may be necessary.
Metatasalgia (Pain in the Ball of the Foot)
Treatment Times and Prices

The initial consultation costs £65, which is followed by treatment charges that are given when we understand what the patient needs and requires. Our standard surgery time is half an hour however more complicated procedures will require a longer appointment.


Our Benefits Stand Out

We also offer Acupuncture and Reflexology treatments at our practice.

Please contact us for more information.

Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine. Fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for preventative or therapeutic purposes. How acupuncture works

Acupuncture involves stimulating nerves under the skin and muscles of the body. This results in the body producing substances such as endorphins which are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced by the patient, such as pain-relief.

A course of acupuncture usually creates longer lasting pain relief than a single treatment.

Uses of acupuncture Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of health conditions such as:

Chronic tension-type headaches
Migraines
Musculoskeletal conditions of the bones and muscles
Chronic pain
Neck pain
Joint pain
Dental pain
About acupuncture
Reflexology is a form of complementary' medicine involving a massage as a treatment to reflex areas found in the hands and most commonly, the feet.
How it can help

The British Reflexology Association carried out a survey that showed benefits to those presenting symptoms of various ailments and conditions including:
Stress, Insomnia
Irritable bowel syndrome.
Other conditions it may help with include: Headaches
Migraines. Sinus congestion
Stiffness in the neck and back
Digestive problems, Hormonal problems
A GP referral is not necessary to try reflexology. Reflexology can not give a medical diagnosis and does not substitute visiting a GP.
Our reflexology sessions are considered by our patients to be a very relaxing therapy which may reduce tension and lead to an improved sense of well-being.
