General Care: Foot Imprint Podiatry attends to all aspects of General Podiatric practice including:

  • Trimming and filing toenails to prevent ingrown toenails and maintain foot health.
  • Thickened toenails management.
  • Calluses and corns removal are important to maintain optimal foot health. These form as part of a protective layer from excess and repeated pressure.
  • Cracked heels occur often when the skin becomes dry and loses its elasticity. The splitting of the skin can increase the risk of infection.
  • Ingrown toenails are where the corners of the nail dig painfully into the skin often causing pressure or infection. They are frequently caused by incorrect cutting technique, improper footwear, foot structure, trauma or inherited. We are able to treat ingrown toenails conservatively and surgical intervention where indicated.
  • Diabetic foot screening and assessments regularly during general care appointments are vital to your foot health. It involves looking at the circulation and nerve function in the feet. Thereafter an assessment on your level of risk can be determined and appropriate education provided.
  • Warts are caused by a virus which enters through small cuts in the skin. Warts can cause a great deal of pain and be transferred throughout the body if left untreated. We provide a variety of treatment options depending on the individual case.
  • Athlete’s foot (tinea) usually occurring between the toes or the bottom of the foot. It’s caused by a fungus and symptoms of itchy feet are common. A similar organism to fungus found in the toenails however, this form is contained to the top layer of the skin rather than nail bed itself. Tinea generally responds well to foot fungal treatments.
  • Fungal nail treatments can develop as a result of infection caused by microorganisms that make the way through to the nail plate. As a result, the nail appearance can change. We are equipped to advise you of the best treatment for your individual case.

At Foot Imprint Podiatry we pride ourselves in providing exceptional service and looking at your individual needs from a holistic aspect. General care can be combined with our luxury foot facial treatments. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any enquiries.
