Chiropody and Podiatry
You are never too young to start looking after your feet. Problems we treat at King Podiatry range from foot odour, thickened and fungal nails, ingrown toenails and arch pain; through to bunions, corns, calluses and cracked heels. We treat Plantar Fasciitis (arch pain) and other foot/lower limb pain; to specialist assessment and treatment for sufferers of medical conditions such as Arthritis or Diabetes. As well as treatments in clinic we provide home visits if required.
Problems such as reoccurring ingrowing toe nails often require minor surgery using a local anaesthetic. We offer a comprehensive package of surgery and 6 week follow up care for our clients.
Biomechanics and Bespoke Orthotics
Everyone is unique and the way we move is unique. Sometimes it is the way we move that is the problem and can overtime trigger pain in our muscles, tendons and joints. Foot, knee, hip and back pain can all be due to the biomechanics of our feet. At King Podiatry we are fully qualified in biomechanics and provide a comprehensive service. Our Orthotics are tailored to your individual requirements, are of the highest quality and come with a five year guarantee.
Diabetic foot assessment
Diabetes can cause severe foot problems as high glucose levels can affect both your circulation and the nervous system.
This can result in a loss of sensation, called neuropathy, which means that skin damage, blisters from badly fitting footwear, ulcers and other foot problems can become quite serious before they are even noticed.
It is essential that sufferers check their feet daily for any signs of damage and also have regular foot assessments, carried out by a professional, to reduce the risk of injury, infection and other complications.
