Treatments

At your Initial podiatry assessment (£55 ) your podiatrist will make an assessment of your foot problem and general health which will help to diagnose the problem, inform you of treatment options available and work with you to formulate a bespoke treatment plan.

Follow up appointments cost from £45. Planned treatments will be carried out.

Orthotics are prescribed on an individual basis following Biomechanical assessment which may include dynamic gait analysis using Footscan. Off the shelf, semi-bespoke and bespoke casted devices are available including Phits 3D printed orthotics. Prices range from £50-£280 and are dependant upon your prescription and budget.

Shockwave Therapy. A non-surgical treatment which works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon. This is a highly effective treatment available for patients with pain due to:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Shoulder pain
  • Tennis elbow
  • Achilles Tendonopathy
  • Trochanteric bursitis (Lateral hip pain)

This can be a very successful second line treatment for patients who fail to respond to  physiotherapy or other conservative treatments.

Simple nail care appointments costs £25 and is available subject to suitability following your an initial podiatry assessment. Regular attendance and annual reassessment are required.

Testing and treatment of fungal nails. It is recommended that a positive test result for fungus precedes any treatment. A test for fungal infections is available at the clinic and once a positive test result is obtained treatment options can be discussed and a treatment plan agreed.

Nail surgery package fees are from £335 and include 2 follow up appointments and all post operative dressing materials.

Hot wax treatment can be beneficial for patients with foot pain and can be included in a follow up appointment.

Mobilisation techniques and exercises can support rehabilitation and return to normal function following injury and may be prescribed as part of your treatment plan.

Verrucae Treatments available include Verrutop and Needling in which are replacing more traditional acid application and cryotherapy.

Needling is shown in trials to successfully resolve even longstanding verrucae which have been resistant to other types of treatment and is used mainly in adults and requires local anaesthetic.

Verrutop is a new class of treatment for warts and verrucae. It is a Class IIa Medical Device, complying to all the quality, safety and clinical regulations that such a classification requires.

Whilst Verrutop is a combination of organic and inorganic acids, the acid base is not designed to either burn or stimulate an immune response but to create the production of nitrite on the wart or verruca which produces a desiccating effect, drying up the wart tissue and reducing residual viral DNA. The verruca just dries up and falls off, leaving an intact epithelium underneath.

It is applied by a capillary tube at 2-weekly intervals and clinical studies show a clearance rate of around 40% with a single application and up to 90% after 6 applications.

As it is virtually pain-free, it can be used in children as young as 6 years of age. Pricing is dependant upon your agreed treatment plan.

Domicillary Visits are available on request.
