New patient assessment
An initial assessment is required to find out more about you. This will include details such as your medical history and medication, there are many conditions/medications which can affect your feet and possible treatment.
At this initial assessment there will also be screening of the blood supply and sensation of the feet.
Nails can be thickened, lifting, curved/in-growing, crumbly, misshapen or simply just long! However all can cause the feet to become uncomfortable.
Sometimes the nails will require simply cutting but they may also require mechanical thinning and require the sides of the nails to be cleared.
Diabetic foot checks and advice
Whilst those patients with Diabetes may never suffer any problems with their feet they are unfortunately at a higher risk of foot complications. These complications tend to be a reduction in blood supply and sensation to the feet both of which increase the risk of foot problems.
The aim is to be proactive rather than reactive to try and prevent problems occurring in the first place and reduce those risks in the future.
Corns and callus
When the feet are subjected to excess shearing or pressure forces this can result in callus and corn formation which can often become painful and uncomfortable. If this becomes too thick it can cause excess pressure on the underlying skin resulting in breakdowns.
These shearing or pressure areas can occur for a number of reasons including things such as an individual’s gait pattern, foot deformity or simply poor footwear.
Cracked heels (fissures)
When the skin becomes very dry it loses the elasticity and the skins ability to absorb stresses which can often result in cracking to occur in the skin. This will often occur around the heels and can be very painful with a thickened callus appearance and bleeding.
Verruca treatment (using debridement and/or caustic treatment)
Verrucae are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus and a large number of them will be painless and given time will self-resolve although this may take months or years.
Treatment is normally required if the verruca becomes painful/uncomfortable or is starting to spread. Sometimes this pain/discomfort is the callus which forms over the verruca so debriding this can help with regular filing once debrided.
Orthotics and Insoles
Whilst the home environment is not the ideal setting for a biomechanical assessment I can provide advice on exercises and offer mobilisation and orthotics/insoles which can be used to help alleviate pain in the feet and lower limbs.
Orthotics and insoles can also be beneficial in reducing pressure areas on the feet and providing cushioning to make the feet more comfortable.
