During your Initial Consultation, the Chiropodist/Podiatrist will assess your feet and any specific issues or concerns you may have. If there are problems, such as hard skin, calluses or a verruca, this will be treated within your first appointment. Should we require subsequent appointments – such as nail surgery – the practitioner will discuss a course of action.
• First consultation: £80
We offer a wide variety of specialist treatments and services for all ages, including:
Our specialist chiropodists and podiatrists can remove hard skin, trim nails and address calluses, corns, skin disorders, cracked heels, bunions, verrucas, athletes foot and other nail complaints. We also diagnose, treat and rehabilitate issues with your feet and lower limbs. In addition, we provide computerised gait scans and biomechanics assessment to determine what area needs to be helped/supported. We can then make casts of your feet to manufacture custom-made orthotics (an insole to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position), helping you to get out of any pain or discomfort.
We use them every day, yet our feet tend to be one of the most neglected areas of our body. With each step the impact from the ground is sending a wave up the leg at 200km/h (about 124mph) from joint to joint (ankle, knee, hip and spine). Neglecting our feet can increase a variety of complaints, and have an impact on the musculo-skeletal health of your feet and lower limbs.
Practising good foot care is imperative in order to avoid unsightly conditions, or address pain and discomfort. Regular check-ups can prevent issues such as ingrown toenails or fungal infections, whilst highlighting any problems that may be arising. Podiatrists can perform a computerised gait analysis and and help correct any faulty biomechanics – improving posture and relieving pressure.
Our spacious, clean rooms within our modern clinics in Canary Wharf and London Bridge, are well-equipped for our chirpopodists and podiatrists to treat and diagnose a wide range of foot complaints, including the latest technology to provide gait analysis and biomechanic assessments.
There are 26 bones in our feet. Each foot has 33 joints, 19 muscles, 10 tendons and 107 ligaments.
A toenail grows around 1mm per month.
There are around 250,000 sweat glands on your feet.
Most people do not wear the correct shoe size for their feet.
Shoe size in Britain is measured in barleycorns, a unit of measurement that stretches back to Anglo-Saxon times.
Although not very practical for the majority of us, going barefoot is best for your feet, joints and overall posture.
The average person walks around 100,000 miles in a lifetime – more so for runners. That’s a lot of stress on our feet!
There are nearly 8,000 nerves in our feet, which is how many people find it the most ticklish part of their body. It can also be a good sign, as reduced sensitivity can be an indicator of neuropathy.
