Podiatrists treat a wide range of lower limb, ankle and foot issues.

Podiatrists treat a wide range of lower limb issues.

Podiatrists (also known as Chiropodists) are experts of the feet and are able to diagnose and treat a wide range of toe, foot, ankle and lower limb problems. These may include sports related injuries, shin splints, fractures, ingrown toe nails, fungal nail infections, athletes foot, verrucas, corns, calluses, bunions, and much more.

A podiatrist is also able to analyse your gait and body mechanics, in order to improve your standing posture or efficiency whilst walking or running. For example, if your foot posture is flat or high arched this can lead to further problems up the body. The good news is this is simple and painless to correct, and can prevent injuries from occurring in the future.

Full assessment of the lower leg joints, both weight-bearing and non weight-bearing, focusing on the mechanical issues causing pain and discomfort during gait. Should the issue present when walking, then the plantar pressure scanner can be used (see below).


Plantar Pressure Gait Scan (45 mins)

This is a dynamic, weight-bearing scan of the feet during gait. It tracks the way the pressure transfers through the pathological foot, and allows us to isolate individual areas and correct them with orthotics and specific exercises.


Medical Pedicure (45 mins)

A full overhaul of the feet, including nail cut & file, callous/corn removal, skin filed and nails treated/buffed. Oil and lotion is applied to replenish the foot and ensure a longer lasting result. Jack provides possibly the best Medi-Pedi treatments in the City!


Casting (30 mins)

Plaster of Paris casting of the foot to ensure a gold-standard copy of the patients foot. Often used in conjunction with the Plantar Pressure Scanner.
