INGROWING TOENAIL

 

We are ready to see you for ingrowing toenail treatment. Perhaps you have been advised by the NHS to join a waiting list of many weeks or you are in pain and need treatment now. We are ready to see you at our fully HCPC registered practice. Even if the nail is infected we can still treat you. All treatment is private and non NHS however we are HCPC registered and you may be able to claim costs back through your health insurance provider.

MSK & BIOMECHANICAL ASSESSMENT

 

A biomechanical assessment  musculoskeletal (MSK) involves an examination of the lower limbs, looking at their structure, alignment, strengths and weaknesses. The examination is not focused just on the foot but includes the pelvis, legs and knees, assessing the relationship between them.The results of these assessments will determine why you are having  problems and what the likely causes are. In addition, the results become the fundamentals for your orthotic prescription, which will help improve foot alignment and function.At footcare4eva we provide MSK and biomechanical assessment and customised/prefabricated orthoses with information on a variety of exercises suitable for your condition.

DIABETIC FOOT CHECK

 

Diabetes is associated with many health complications and directly affects the blood supply and nerves in the lower limbs. It is important that individuals with diabetes take extra care of their feet and fully understand the potential risks and complications involved. It is ideal that a diabetic foot check is performed on an annual basis in order to monitor and/or detect any changes.At footcare4eva we offer Diabetic foot check and Ankle-Brachial pressure index (ABPI).Report sent to your GP with referral recommendation (if necessary).Diabetic foot care and also any Diabetic foot care advice.

NAIL CARE

 

Damaged nails may become increasingly thickened, making them difficult to manage.As we get older many people have difficulty reaching their feet, reduced muscle strength and/or poor eyesight, making personal nail cutting difficult. 
Various nail pathologies such as fungal nails (onychomycosis), thickened nails (onychauxis), rams horn nails (onychogryphosis) and involuted nails may become increasingly difficult to manage and uncomfortable.


Diabetic and immunosuppressed patients are at an increased risk of contracting infection and delayed healing. A Podiatrist can reduce this risk by inspecting the feet, cutting the nails, smoothing out sharp edges and debriding any hard skin on a regular basis.At footcare4eva we offer nail cutting (length and thickness reduction) and a general foot check if you have any queries or concerns about foot care.

CORNS & CALLUS TREATMENT
