Some of our more common conditions we treat with information and advice

What are corns and calluses?

  • Corns: Small, hard, painful bumps of thickened skin that often form on the toes or sides of the feet.
  • Calluses: Thick, hardened patches of skin usually found on the soles of feet or hands.


  • Corns and calluses develop due to repeated pressure or friction on the skin, often caused by:
    • Ill-fitting shoes
    • Foot deformities (bunions, hammertoes)
    • Not wearing socks
    • Repetitive activities (like using tools)


  • Corns: A hard, raised bump with a central core, tender to the touch.
  • Calluses: Thickened, yellowish patch of skin, less painful than corns, rough to touch.

Treatment options

  • Home Care:

    • Soak feet in warm water to soften hard skin.
    • Gently file with a pumice stone or foot file (use caution, especially if you have diabetes).
    • Moisturise regularly to keep skin soft.
    • Use over-the-counter cushioning pads to relieve pressure.
  • Podiatrist Treatment:

    • Professional removal of corns and calluses using scalpel or water file.
    • Prescription-strength medications for stubborn cases.
    • Advice on footwear and modifications

  • Regularly inspect your feet for signs of trouble.
  • Seek podiatrist care for persistent or painful corns/calluses.

Important Note: If you have diabetes or poor circulation, do not attempt to treat corns or calluses on your own. Seek professional podiatric care.

What is a biomechanical assessment?

A biomechanical assessment is a thorough evaluation by a podiatrist to analyse how your feet, ankles, and lower limbs function during standing and movement (gait analysis). This helps identify any imbalances, inefficiencies, or misalignments that might be causing pain or injuries.

Why consider a biomechanical assessment?

Biomechanical assessments are beneficial if you experience:

  • Foot pain (heel pain, arch pain, etc.)
  • Ankle, knee, hip, or lower back pain
  • Recurrent injuries
  • Problems with your walking or running gait
  • Concerns about foot development in children

What does a biomechanical assessment involve?

  • Detailed History: Discussion of your pain, injuries, and activity levels.
  • Physical Examination: Examination of your feet, joints, and muscles.
  • Gait Analysis: Assessment of your walking/running patterns, often using video analysis.
  • Foot Posture Assessment: Measuring foot alignment and structure.

Outcomes of a Biomechanical Assessment:

  • Identifying the root cause of your pain or discomfort
  • Personalised treatment plan which may include:
    • Footwear recommendations
    • Exercise and stretching programs
    • Custom orthotics (prescription insoles)

Don’t let foot or leg problems slow you down. A biomechanical assessment is the first step towards pain-free movement.

Note: If you are an athlete looking to improve performance or prevent injuries, a biomechanical assessment can be highly valuable.

What is an ingrown toenail?

An ingrown toenail occurs when the edge of the nail pierces the skin, causing pain, inflammation, and possible infection. This often affects the big toe.

What causes ingrown toenails?

  • Trimming nails too short or with a curved shape.
  • Wearing shoes that are too tight.
  • Trauma or injury to the toe.
  • Naturally curved nails (hereditary).

Ingrown Toenail Treatment Options

  • Home remedies: In mild cases, your podiatrist may recommend:

    • Foot soaks in warm water.
    • Lifting the nail edge with cotton or floss.
    • Proper trimming techniques to prevent recurrence.
  • Partial Nail Ablation: For more severe or persistent ingrown toenails:

    • Local anesthetic is used to numb your toe.
    • A small portion of the nail is removed.
    • Phenol is applied to prevent regrowth of the ingrown section.
    • This results in a slightly narrower nail that no longer causes pain.

The healing process

  • A bandage is applied for the first two days.
  • Smaller bandages are needed for about 3 weeks to ensure proper healing.

Don’t let ingrown toenails stop you! Seek professional treatment for lasting relief.

Important Note: People with diabetes or circulation problems should always consult with a podiatrist for ingrown toenail treatment.

What are verrucae?

Verrucae are warts that occur on the soles of the feet. They are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).

Common signs of verrucae:

  • Small, rough growths on the soles of the feet.
  • May have tiny black dots in the center (blood vessels)
  • Can be painful when walking or standing.

Verrucae Treatment Options

While many verrucae clear up on their own, treatment can speed up the process or be necessary if they become painful or spread. We offer the following verruca treatments:

  • Destructive Treatments:
    • Salicylic acid
    • Cryotherapy (freezing with nitrous oxide)
    • Other topical acids (pyrogallol, monochloracetic)
    • Verrutop
  • Dry Needling: Stimulates the immune system to fight the verruca, useful for multiple or resistant verrucae.

Important Notes

  • No single verruca treatment is universally effective for everyone.
  • Your podiatrist will discuss the best options for your case and develop a personalised treatment plan.
  • Treatment requires several sessions.

Don’t let verrucae disrupt your life! Contact us for effective treatment options.

The dry needling used to be carried out on problematic verrucae although there is an increasing trend to use this as a first treatment. The technique is intended to break down the verruca and create a controlled inflammatory response which, in turn, stimulates the body’s immune system to fight the infection. One treatment is sufficient for about 80% of cases and if a second treatment is needed, the outcome is often higher.

A local anaesthetic is applied to the ankle (to numb the sole of the foot) or toe and the verruca is ‘stabbed’ multiple times to push the virus into the fat pad behind to stimulate the bodies immune response. It may be sore for the next day but forms a scab within a few days. The verruca is ignored for 3 months and then reviewed and repeated if necessary.

What is MLS and MiS Laser Therapy?

MLS Laser Therapy is a safe, painless, and non-invasive treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to reduce pain, inflammation, and accelerate tissue healing. It is effective for both acute injuries and chronic conditions like arthritis and plantar fasciitis. MiS is a higher powered version of the MLS system. We have both.

How does MLS and MiS Laser Therapy work?

  • The laser delivers infrared light energy to your cells, stimulating natural healing processes.
  • This leads to:
    • Reduced pain and inflammation.
    • Improved blood circulation.
    • Faster tissue regeneration.

Benefits of MLS Laser Therapy

  • Provides drug-free pain relief.
  • Speeds up recovery from injuries.
  • Promotes long-lasting results.
  • Can help manage chronic conditions like arthritis.

The Treatment Process

  1. Initial Assessment: A podiatrist evaluates your condition to create a personalised treatment plan.
  2. Treatment Sessions: Typically, a course of 6 treatments over 3 weeks with closer spacing initially.
  3. Duration: Each treatment session lasts around 10-15 minutes per area.
  4. Results: Many patients experience noticeable improvement within 2-4 sessions.

MLS Laser therapy is a completely safe, non-invasive and painless method of managing acute or chronic pain and inflammation including in the cases of arthritis or injury. The laser supplies infrared light energy directly to your cells which encourages your body’s own healing process and reduces pain.

After an initial treatment to assess and diagnose, a treatment plan will be constructed. We will often ensure that you have seen a physiotherapist or will arrange to see our physiotherapist to ensure you have a suitable rehabilitation and strengthening plan.

Typically we aim to provide a series of treatments over 3-4 weeks. Initially spaced at three times a week reducing to once or twice a week as the healing progresses.

Treatment times for one area e.g. a knee is 15 minutes. The effects can be long lasting and we have treated patients with severe achilles tendonitis and knee arthritis that are still pain free over 18 months since initial treatment. However due to the nature of the treatment, unrestricted top-up treatment can be conducted safely at any time if needed. This compares favourably to steroid injections that are limited in use.
