Foot Care

General treatment of the feet is a core part of our podiatry practice – we believe wholeheartedly that prevention is better than the cure. Your feet are under stress all day; walking, running and being squashed into tight fitting shoes can cause a myriad of foot issues.

This can lead to conditions such as:

  • Corns
  • Callouses
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Heel Cracks
  • Elongated Toenails
  • Plantar Warts
  • Fungal Nail Infection

    These are often painful and recurring conditions that can be easily and painlessly treated during a general treatment consultation.

    Ingrown Toenail

    Non-Invasive Ingrown Toenail Treatment
    Almost everyone will suffer from an ingrown toenail at some point in their life. If treated quickly and effectively, discomfort can be prevented. Following a thorough assessment Patricia will present the options in addressing the present pain and the future management.

    In the event that they become swollen and infected, or are a occurring problem, education for prevention and treatment for immediate comfort. In most cases normal activity can be resumed that day.

    Biomechanical Assessment

    Abnormal foot biomechanics is a major contributing factor in the development of pain and injury in the feet, ankles, knees and legs. Patricia is highly skilled, trained to detect biomechanical abnormalities that may be the cause of your pain or may predispose you to injury.

    Foot and leg biomechanics incorporates a comprehensive evaluation of the structure, alignment and function of the feet and legs while standing and during walking. The information gained from the biomechanical assessment and gait analysis helps Patricia to recommend the most effective treatment program for your specific problem.

    This 'Holistic' approach to assessment and treatment provides effective, targeted and prompt recovery from injury and relief of painful symptoms.

    Universal Reflexology

    Reflexology is based on the concept that every part of the body is connected by energy pathways which end in reflex areas on the feet, the hands and the ears. Reflexology is the practice of working over these reflexes in a precise and systematic way. By applying controlled pressure, the body is encouraged to achieve its own natural state of wholeness and good health. Working on the feet is especially beneficial in clearing and balancing the body.

    reflex is a point on the body which, when stimulated by a reflexologist, will have an effect on another part of the body. The classic one is the knee jerk reflex. If you tap the knee, the reflex action is the spasm of the thigh muscles which makes the knee jerk.

    The art and techniques of massage and manipulation of the body largely come from Greece, Rome, North Africa, and the Arabian peninsula. They date back many thousands of years and have known from this time to have profound and positive effect on the health of the recipient. Known as the "father of medicine," Hippocrates a physician of Ancient Greece, spoke of rubbing and manipulation in order to relieve pain in the joints.

    Foot therapy, an extension of reflexology, claims to analyse our emotional lives and personality traits from the toes, skin and feet. It’s possibly the most popular new form of self-discovery you didn’t know existed.

    Discover toe-curling truths with a quick guide

  • Your right foot is your professional side and your left your emotional side. If one foot is bigger than the other, you’re more confident in that side of yourself.
  • A vertical line between the padding of the ball of your foot indicates low self-esteem.
    Crisscrossing can indicate indecisiveness.
  • Peeling skin is a good thing – it means you’re releasing an emotion, such as finalising a divorce.
  • Hardening skin means you’re putting up a protective barrier due to changes in your life such as ending a relationship, a miscarriage or a job change.
  • If you have a narrow heel, you’re someone who needs more security and is dependent on others.
  • A long line from north to south of the foot means you put pressure on yourself to be perfect.
  • The lengths of your toes relate to the areas in which your strengths lie.
  • The big toe links to thoughts, the second to emotions and passions, the middle to career, the fourth to relationships and the little toe to a sense of security.
