Expert care to keep feet healthy
Regular care and attention can make a big difference in keeping your feet healthy and happy for the long term. Our routine footcare deals with all kinds of everyday issues such as corns, calluses and cracked heels. Yet just as importantly, it helps to pick up any signs of foot damage or potential problems so that our podiatrist can treat them right away here at our Totnes based clinic.
Cutting and caring for toenails is an essential part of routine footcare and we’re really experienced in getting to all those tricky areas for neat and healthy nails. We’ll also assess ingrowing toenails and thickened nails to decide on the best way to treat them. Hard skin, calluses and corns are particularly common problems which we can remove quickly and painlessly – and we can also arrange a home visit if you have problems with mobility.
Feet Problems With Diabetes
Caring for your feet is extremely important if you’re living with diabetes because of potential problems with foot sensation and circulation. These problems can include numbness, discolouration, temperature changes, tingling and wounds.
At Footworks Podiatry, Totnes, we’ll carry out a comprehensive and thorough diabetic foot assessment to pick up any concerns. This includes checks for numbness and changes in sensation as well as pain, wounds, corns, calluses and blisters. We’ll advise on footwear and caring for your feet at home as well as treating any problems.
