The Podiatry team at Luck’s Yard Clinic are all highly experienced and can offer advice in all areas of Podiatry including biomechanical assessment.

They work closely with the chiropractors and massage therapists at Luck’s Yard, to improve posture, alignment and function. Some of the most common conditions dealt with are heel, knee, back and pelvic pain. Other conditions that Podiatrists frequently treat are corns, ingrown toe nails, nail treatments and verrucae.

More about Chiropody and Podiatry

What is Podiatry?
Podiatrists are healthcare professionals who are qualified to assess, diagnose and treat people with foot, ankle and lower limb problems. This can include foot care for the elderly or disabled people unable to reach their own feet but also covers nail surgery, treatment of verrucae, biomechanical assessments and physical therapy.

What is the difference between Podiatry and Chiropody?
Chiropodists now tend to call themselves podiatrists as it reflects the full scope of practice now covered in their training.

How often do I need to come to see a Podiatrist?
If there are no pending problems then 3-6 monthly foot checks are adequate but regular 6 to 8 week appointments can be beneficial to some patients.

What are Orthotics and do they work?
They are specifically made casted devices to wear inside your shoe to control, realign or cushion any abnormalities. They are very effective so long as the prescription is accurate and the patient wears them in correctly and continues to wear them on a regular basis.

Is there an age limit (young/old) for when I should see a Podiatrist?
Not at all. Children as young as two years of age come for biomechanical assessments and as old as 100 for routine foot care. Prevention is always better than cure.

Do you think you have a fungal growth on your toenails?

Yvette Mann now has a new diagnostic tool for fungal toenails:

The testing is a 97 percent accurate way of testing for fungal nail infections in just 5 minute and  costs only £48.

For the convenience of patients, a fungal infection can now be confirmed at the same time as routine foot care so the most appropriate treatment can be given for the best results.
