Complete list of specialist foot treatments at our Totnes clinic
Routine footcare – our chiropodists believe that a little TLC goes a long way in caring for the long-term wellbeing of your feet. From dealing with corns, calluses and cracked heels to caring for toenails and picking up signs of potential problems, our routine appointments are the cornerstone of good foot health. Diabetic foot assessments are also covered under routine footcare. They help prevent potential problems caused by reduced sensation and circulation.
Specialist nail treatments – these include innovative Clearanail treatment for fungus nail infections, partial nail avulsion surgery for deeply ingrown toenails and Wilde Pedique nail reconstruction treatment for thickened and damaged toenails.
Verucca Swift treatment – verrucas can be a persistent problem for many clients, which is why we’ve invested in Swift®, an innovative technology that uses microwave energy to treat veruccas without affecting the surrounding skin. Treatment takes around 5 seconds and there’s no need for any anaesthetic or dressings.
Treatment for foot pain & injury – our foot doctors carry out rigorous assessments to help diagnose the causes of foot and lower-limb pain. We can treat many types of conditions including sports injuries, arch and heel pain, arthritic joints, neuromas and shin splints. Treatment is tailored to each client but could include foot orthotics, massage and muscle-strengthening therapies as well as stretching programmes.
Musculoskeletal and biomechanical assessment – our podiatrists in Totnes use this in-depth assessment to understand a client’s lower-limb alignment, structure, strengths and weaknesses to help find the most appropriate solutions for pain in the foot and lower limb. The assessment evaluates the structure of the foot, range of movement within joints, forces on specific joints and posture.
Gait analysis – innovative technology in gait analysis with OptoGait has enabled our foot specialists to gain invaluable insight into the way a client walks. Understanding a client’s gait can help to establish the underlying causes of foot or lower-limb pain.
