We ask when you attend the practice that you have no symptoms of Covid-19 or to wear a face mask/covering.
Some people have difficulty simply maintaining basic foot care where the challenge of painful or stiff joints, or poor vision can make self care difficult to achieve without a little help.
Having feet that are pain free helps mobility and the ability to enjoy being active
What do podiatrists do?
Podiatrists Lorraine and Mougnir have been trained to help prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate conditions affecting the foot and lower limbs. Also to help prevent and treat deformity, to keep you mobile and active, and to help relieve pain and treat foot infections.
The titles chiropodist and podiatrist are interchangeable – there is no difference between them. When asked what the difference is, we usually reply spelling, however, the term podiatrist is now the more widely used term.
Both Lorraine and Mougnir are regulated by the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council).
What to expect?
We will ask for relevant medical history. This is followed by a primary assessment and examination which will enable us to discuss your needs and develop the treatment / treatment plan needed.
We pride ourselves on maintaining high standards of patient care, and try and provide you with the most effective treatment package available.
If you have health insurance, the costs may be covered by your health insurance provider.
Nail surgery for persistent ingrown toenails.
Long term problems with ingrown or painful nails can be very debilitating and also costly if regular treatment is required.
For nail conditions that can’t be managed conservatively we offer nail surgery to remove either part of your toenail (PNA) or all of your toenail (TNA). These procedures are performed under local anaesthetic which is injected into the base of your toe.
Lower limb biomechanical assessments and Orthotic (insoles) prescription
There is an old saying that when your feet hurt, you hurt all over. For example flat feet (fallen arches, pronation) or very high arched feet can both lead to poor foot function. This can lead over time to problems not just within the foot, but also may affect the ankles, knees, hips and back.
A biomechanical assessment and looking at how you walk will help us to determine what the underlying issues are. Where appropriate, prescription of exercises and or orthoses will be tailored to fit inside your footwear to help your feet perform more efficiently, alleviating your symptoms.
