We’re one of the best chiropodists in Billericay and surrounding areas there is to offer, so here are just a few reasons why you should consider us.
What We Can Help With
Your feet work hard every day, and so they will suffer injury or develop conditions that cause you pain and discomfort. Here are just a few of the things that we can help you with here.
Sports injuries: Any seasoned athlete will have weathered an injury or two. However, you don’t want that injury to keep you away for long. Foot injuries actually account for over 50% of all sports injuries, as they are your body’s foundation. If anything goes wrong when you’re playing, then your feet are going to suffer the worst of it. We can help you solve your sporting injuries, helping you get back on form.
Calluses and corns: Any good chiropodist in Billericay should be able to help you with corns and calluses. These are hardened, thickened skin on your feet. At best they’re unsightly, but they can cause pain and discomfort when you walk. You’ll usually find calluses over the ball of your foot, as this takes the most pressure as you’re walking. Usually, a good chiropodist will be able to remove the hardened skin and help you with advice on preventing them in the future.
Verrucas: Verrucas are a type of wart that forms on the sole of the foot, and are caused by the Human Papillomavirus. Usually, they shouldn’t be a problem and will heal up on their own. However, sometimes they can be stubborn and stick around. If that’s happening to you, you can get it treated here with treatments that are stronger than over the counter treatments.
Ingrown toenails: This is another common problem that causes a lot of pain for those suffering from the condition. If the nail can’t be treated under normal means, part or all of the nail can be removed and prevented from regrowing.
Treatments On Offer
When looking for a chiropodist Billericay, you want someone who can offer a good array of treatments. There’s plenty of treatments we can offer you, so you can get foot care that suits your needs. This includes treatments such as:
Verruca removal: This can be done in a few different ways. Verrucas can be removed with microwave treatment, cryosurgery, or acid depending on the severity of the problem.
Fungal nail infections: We can offer treatment for nail infections that ensure that the infection is fully treated and shouldn’t return, as well as information on how to care for your nails to prevent infections in the future.
