Podiatry Treatments

Podiatry and chiropody treatments in East Kilbride, Glasgow and Oban

Our podiatry treatments are delivered in Glasgow and Oban by podiatry professionals, in the comfort of your own home.

Podiatry treatments are typically non-invasive and pain-free with great benefits for your feet and your wider health and wellbeing. If you would like to discuss our treatments with our team, you can get in touch with us and we will be happy to answer your questions or visit you for a consultation.

Full Podiatry Treatment

A full podiatry  treatment consists of nail care and skin work. Nails are trimmed, buffed and all nail borders are cleared. All skin callus and corns are treated and dry, thickened heels are buffed for a smooth finish.

During your treatment, an assessment will be carried out to check your circulation and to make any foot observations.

At the end of the appointment, the Podiatrist will discuss any observations they have found and give advice to help maintain healthy feet.

Nail Surgery

For patients who suffer from reoccurring ingrown nails or their nail issues. The full nail can be fully removed or a partial section of nail to stop future issues and a chemical is applied to prevent nail regrowth. An assessment will be carried out prior to the nail surgery appointment being made to determine what procedure you require and to discuss the procedure in details.

The procedure takes approximately 45-60 minutes to carry out and will remain numb for a few hours afterwards.

The wound can take approximately 4-6 weeks to heal for a partial nail avulsion and 8-10 weeks for a total nail removal.  You will be shown how to dress the toe and will be seen regularly until the wound is healed.

Please note: you will not be able to drive legally for up to 28 hours after receiving the local anaesthetic.

Verruca Treatments

Verrucae are warts that can be found anywhere on the foot but commonly occur on the soles of the feet. They are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and are passed from person to person by direct contact. The virus is thought to thrive in moist, damp environments such as swimming pools, changing room floors and communal shower areas.

Our podiatrists will confirm the diagnosis and discuss treatment options as well as reducing the overlying crust.

Please note: unfortunately, no verrucae treatment is 100% effective and multiple treatments are often required.

Medical Podicure

The medical podicure is a combination of therapies which fuses medical and therapeutic treatments together. A full podiatry treatment is carried out. A gel polish is then applied followed with deep moisturising foot massage to finish off the treatment.

This treatment not only leaves your feet feeling great but looking great also. It is a perfect pre-holiday treatment or for that special occasion when you need your feet looking fantastic.

>Please note: gel polish can be added to finger nails for an additional cost.

Nail Cut

Our podiatrist will cut and file your nails while observing the condition of the feet. At the end of the appointment, the podiatrist will discuss any observations they have found and give advice to help maintain healthy feet.

Ingrown Toe Nails

An ingrowing toenail is where a piece of nail pierces the flesh of the toe. It can be extremely painful and become infected. The nail could also be curling (involuted or convoluted) into the flesh and be just as uncomfortable as ingrown.

Treatment involves removal of the offending spur of nail with or without anaesthetic depending on the severity of the problem and a course of antibiotics may be required. Ingrown nails can be managed to prevent future infections.

In chronic situations, the podiatrist may recommend surgical intervention to prevent the issue reoccurring.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine originating from traditional Chinese remedies in which thin needles are inserted into the body at specific points to manage pain. Our podiatrists can use this technique as a single treatment or to enhance other treatments put in place to help ease aches and pains.

Biomechanical Assessments

The analysis of the full body with specialist focus on the lower limb and how this relates to your body’s movement when walking.

The assessment looks for any irregularities which may be contributing to pains in your feet, knees, hips and back, or for factors which may contribute to callus or corn formation. This may lead to recommendations, such as stretching exercises, footwear advise and/or orthotics (insoles).

Diabetic Foot Assessments

Our podiatrists will perform several tests to assess circulation, proprioception, and sensation in the feet and upload the results on the NHS database. This can be incorporated into any treatment and would be recommended once a year.
