Our chiropody services cover everything from the removal of callous, corns and verrucae to cutting in-grown toe nails. In addition, we can give honest medical advice that could prevent similar issues from developing in the future – for example, the main causes of an in-growing toe nail include unsuitable footwear and inappropriate cutting techniques. Whilst these seem relatively simple to remedy, if left unattended in-growing toe nails can lead to infection and require surgery in extreme cases.
Another regularly common complaint that our chiropody service near Battersea deals with regularly is athlete’s foot, which is caused by a fungal infection that is easily spread. The result is an irritating rash that develops in between the toes with the potential to spread further, with adverse effects for toenails in particular.
Certain health conditions such as diabetes can have profoundly negative effects on foot health including loss of sensation. If this is the case for you, getting annual chiropody assessments can keep you one step ahead, giving you the ability to prolong your foot health as long as possible.
