General Chiropody is the treatment of skin and nail conditions such as corns, callus, hard skin and fungal infections. If you are concerned with the skin or nails on your feet then this is the treatment for you. It is also the right treatment if you just want your feet checked over or perhaps to give them a little treat for all the work they do.  Find out more

 
 

In-growing toe nails are basically nails that grow into the skin around the nail, making the toe painful. They can sometimes become swollen, red, infected and have a mixture of yellowy liquid and blood coming from the painful area. They should be treated as soon as possible as they usually become more difficult and painful the longer they are left.  Find out more

 
 

Verrucae and warts are caused by viruses. They are usually contagious and caught in areas where there are many people walking around without any shoes on - e.g. swimming pools, public changing rooms and dance studios. They can be painful, though this is not usually the case.  Find out more

 
 

Fungal infections can affect the skin and/or the nails and is often a source of embarrassment for many people. Depending on the type of fungus, the appearance of an infection varies, the skin may be flaky, red, white, dry or moist and itchy; nails may be thickened, crumbly, splitting, white, yellow or brown. It can be treated though, so for all of you who simply hide your feet away - make an appointment to see your podiatrist/chiropodist and have happy feet again! Find out more

They are prescribed according to your needs and therefore the shape and size differs for different people - so never wear someone else's orthotics! Find out more
