Do you have difficulties reaching your feet? Cracked heels? Diabetes? A problem with your skin or nails? If so, we can help. As Podiatrists, we offer safe skin and nail care for people of all ages. We have the tools of the trade to ensure that your feet are comfortable as well as looking and feeling their best.
A podiatrist (commonly referred to as a foot doctor) is not a doctor as such but rather an expert in caring for your feet, with special skills focusing on the maintenance and treatment of skin, nails conditions of the feet and ankles. Regular treatment by a podiatrist (also formerly known as a chiropodist) can help prevent many common painful lesions such as ingrown toenails and other nail problems, corns, toenail fungus, callouses and cracked heels. Self-treatment can often turn a minor problem into a major one and is generally not advisable. Our team of podiatrists at Sole Therapy have a Masters in Podiatry University Degree and are highly trained to deal with a number of general foot care issues.
COMMON SKIN AND NAIL CARE CONDITIONS
Warts can develop anywhere on the foot, but typically they appear on the bottom (plantar side) of the foot. Plantar warts are a virus and easily treated with Sole Therapy.
CORNS, CALLUS, CRACKED or SPLITTING SKIN
Corns and callus or splitting of the skin around the heels occur from abnormal pressure. A general treatment appointment can remove corns, callus and we can treat your cracked or splitting skin.
INGROWN TOE NAILS
This condition occurs when the corner or side of a toenail grows into the flesh, causing the toe to become painful, red, hot or swollen. Most ingrowing nails are preventable with regular general treatments from our qualified podiatry team and we can perform surgery on these nails for people who require a permanent solution.
NAIL AND SKIN FUNGUS
A fungal nail or skin infection occurs when a fungi (a kind of microorganism) infects your skin. General skin and nail care from our Podiatrists combined with our recommended topical solutions that we sell in our clinic work best to resolve these problems.
