Foot care for the family

Here are some common foot problems that we treat...

Problematic toenails

Toenails can become damaged and thickened from trauma or fungal infections, which makes them difficult to cut. They can also thicken with increasing age.

Corns and calluses/hard skin

These are areas of thick skin on the soles of the feet, tops of the toes, in-between the toes and around the heels that can become painful if left untreated.

Verrucas

These are viral warts commonly found on the soles of the feet. There may be single or multiple lesions, and are sometimes accompanied by black ‘dots’ which are actually blood vessels. They can be very difficult to treat due to their viral nature and often, eventually, resolve on their own.

Ingrowing toenails/Onychocryptosis

These can become very painful if left untreated and can become infected. They occur when a part of the nail starts to grow and press into the skin, often piercing the skin.

Fungal toenails/Onychomycosis

Nails can become infected with fungi which can lead to the nail becoming thick, brittle, discoloured and unsightly. There are a variety of treatments available to treat this, but complete resolution can depend on the severity of the infection.

Athlete’s foot/Tinea pedis

This is a fungal infection of the skin on the feet, commonly found in-between the toes, the soles of the feet and it’s borders. It can appear as dry, flaky blisters with or without itching.

Care, advice and monitoring of the high-risk foot

Conditions such as poor circulation can potentially cause foot problems so it is important to have your feet seen by a professional to help prevent the onset of these problems.

Care, advice and monitoring of the diabetic foot

Diabetes has the potential to cause foot problems, and it is widely recommended that people with diabetes should have their feet checked by a Podiatrist at least annually to ensure that any potential problems are found early.

Bunions/Hallux valgus

Bunions/Hallux valgus – this is a common ‘deformity’ of the big toe joint which can become painful and unsightly. It can cause problems with the lesser toes also and can make shoe fitting difficult.

Plantar fasciitis/Heel pain/Heel spur

These conditions are some of the most common names associated with heel pain. They can often feel worse first thing in the morning or after rest and can last for months if not diagnosed and treated correctly.

Ankle pain/instability

Ankle pain can present on the inside or the outside of the foot with each requiring very different treatment.

Shin splints

This ‘umbrella term’ for lower leg pain is not just the preserve of the sports patient and requires a detailed biomechanical assessment to provide an accurate diagnosis and treatment regime.

Forefoot Pain/’metatarsalgia’

Pain in the ball of the foot is one of the most painful foot complaints to contend with. Getting an accurate diagnosis is imperative to ensure the correct treatment is given.

Achilles tendon problems

This is a common ‘overuse’ injury, which can be either sports or activity induced. The Gold standard treatment usually involves special exercises and footwear changes and in some cases, insoles.

Flat Feet

This is more of a description than a diagnosis and it can cause the feet and whole body to have to work much harder. Footwear advice forms an essential part of treatment.

Sports injuries

Understanding the cause of sports injuries requires an in-depth understanding of biomechanics. A multidisciplinary approach including physiotherapists and sports therapists is usually required to fully recover.

Painful Feet

Feet can be painful for many reasons and it is important to obtain an accurate diagnosis in order that the problem can be treated promptly and successfully.

Children’s/Paediatric foot problems

Children’s/Paediatric foot problems – individual diagnosis is essential and may require specialist referral or just footwear advice to put Mum and Dad’s worries to rest.
