• Ingrowing nails can be a painful condition which occurs when the side of the nail penetrates the surrounding skin.  Secondary infections develop making the area even more sensitive and inflamed. Infection can spread causing health issues and needs professional Podiatric treatment.
  • Nail surgery is a routine procedure which involves partial removal of the problematic nail carried out under local anaesthesia.  It is customary to return to the clinic for re-dressing and review to monitor healing after the procedure.
  • Corns and other skin lesions can grow under nails and yet are easily and painlessly removed by an experienced Podiatrist at the Gait and Posture centre.
  • Fungal infections can also be painful and cause discolouration and thickening of the nail and are characteristically treated topically and/or systemically.
Testimonial

I have been coming to Gait and Posture for over 10 years (after a recommendation) because of pain in my feet.  Simon Costain has always looked after me and each time has produced orthotics that have revolutionised my life and put me back to a healthy life of walking long distances, spending long times on my feet and rowing.  This has kept me fit and enabled me to lead a completely unchanged life.  Recently Denzil Trebilcock spent a huge amount of time with me explaining what was going wrong as he fitting my latest orthotics.

I cannot recommend Gait and Posture more highly each time I visit I think that they will not be able to help me but each time they resolve all my issues Bravo!
