New Patient Podiatry Consultation/ Routine treatment: £45
This 40 minute Consultation for new patients encompasses a wide variety of diagnostic clinical tests which enables our podiatrists to create a suitable treatment plan. Because your feet are unique, your first appointment involves an extensive foot health assessment with a podiatrist. During this time, we’ll conduct a full medical history and take details of any medication you’re taking, allergies, and any previous chiropody or podiatry treatment you’ve received. We’ll also discuss any concerns or problems you have with your feet. We begin the treatment by examining your feet and lower limbs, looking closely at your skin, nails, and foot alignment with biomechanical tests. Clinical musculoskeletal, vascular, neurological and dermatological tests may be provided based on your foot conditon.

Non casted orthoses, otherwise known as ‘off the shelf’ orthoses, are insoles that are ready made.

Ultrasound for Feet: £40
For many people, ultrasound therapy is an effective form of treatment for foot pain and specially heel pain. It sends sound waves to the injured, painful area. These waves move at a frequency of one million vibrations per second. They can penetrate over 2 inches into the body providing the targeted relief you are looking for. More Information.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT)
ESWT is a procedure where shock waves are passed through the skin to the injured part of the foot, using a special device. Extracorporeal means outside of the body. The shockwaves are mechanical and not electric; they are audible, low energy sound waves, which work by increasing blood flow to the injured area. This accelerates the body’s healing process. You will usually require a course of three treatments, one to two weeks apart. Immediately after treatment many people feel a dramatic reduction in pain, unfortunately this effect only usually lasts for a few hours. The true lasting benefit is often not realised until around 8-12 weeks after the third (last) treatment.
Costs are £350 for program of 4 weekly treatments which will also include a comprehensive rehabilitation program and semi bespoke orthotics. Please note all shock wave treatment patients need to attend for an initial consultation which is £45 to assess, diagnose and tailor the treatment plan based on your individual needs.

Paediatric Podiatry: £45
Children's feet are different to that of adults. When they are young, their bones are still very soft and are therefore more easily affected by abnormal pressure and forces. It is important to nurture our children's feet as most of the issues we see in adults have stemmed from issues as children. More Information.
