What Happens During A Podiatry Treatment

Our routine podiatry appointments are 30 minutes long. During your first appointment a full medical record including any medication is needed. A foot health assessment is performed which when used in combination with your concerns allows the Podiatrist to tailor the treatment to your needs. Any foot complaints that you have can be addressed and further advice provided if needed. We believe our treatments are effective and we use high tech equipment along with precise podiatry skills to leave your feet feeling great.

We provide expert podiatry treatment using a blend of traditional techniques and high spec modern equipment . Our Chiropody / Podiatry treatments are 30 minute appointments and are carried out in a professional and welcoming environment. Treatment for common foot problems such as hard to cut toenails, corns, hard skin and fungal nail infections.

A 60 minute appointment. A Biomechanical Assessment involves an examination of the structure and function of the joints and the lower limbs. A series of tests and observations can lead to the identification of dysfunction and weakness. The underlying cause of common injuries such as foot pain, knee pain and back pain can often be attributed to inefficient or faulty foot mechanics

Orthotics, sometimes called shoe inserts or insoles are medical devices worn inside shoes to aid the foots ability to function efficiently. Orthotics provide support and lessen the burden on structures within the foot and lower limb and in so provide effective  treatment for many  musculoskeletal injuries derived from ineffective foot function. Orthotics can be custom made or can be worn straight off the shelf with both options being available at our Clinic.

Nail surgery is the removal of all of the toenail or part of the nail. A local anaesthetic is administered at the base of the affected toe or toes to numb them so that you will not feel any pain during the procedure. After the removal of the entire nail or a portion of the nail, a chemical may be applied to the exposed nail bed and matrix to prevent regrowth by destroying the nail cells. The aim of nail surgery is to provide a long term cure for ingrowing toenails and does so in 97% of cases. So why not contact us for advice or to make an appointment for Nail Surgery in Durham.

If self-treatment is not working and /or the verrucae appears to be getting larger or more painful, you should seek the help of a HCPC registered podiatrist. Additionally, if you have diabetes, poor circulation, are pregnant or any other condition affecting your feet (or your immune system), it is important never to treat verrucae yourself and visit a podiatrist instead. Verruca treatment can break down healthy tissue and cause wounds.

Sports Massage is of particular benefit because of the increased demands that sport can put on the body. Most professional sports clubs employ a massage therapist to help their players and athletes get and keep fit.

Pre event massage can be given to help prepare the muscles and other soft tissues for sporting activity. This can help to reduce the risk of injury and prepare the body and mind for sporting activity.

Post event massage is a slower firmer massage that is given after sporting activity to improve circulation and aid recovery.
