Extensive Chiropody Services near Battersea
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.

The importance of taking care of your feet
Whether you are training for a marathon or walking to work in the morning, your feet are an integral part of your lifestyle. Unfortunately for many people, this is one aspect that is frequently taken for granted, whereas in fact the foot and ankle forms one of the most complicated parts of human anatomy, containing some 26 bones and 33 joints. This makes regular foot care essential, particularly if you are susceptible to injury. A chiropody session can answer these questions and more.
