Pain can range from annoying discomfort to very debilitating. Overtime this can have a huge impact on both physical and mental well being.
A Podiatrist treating skin and nail problems can make a dramatic improvement to pain straight away by removing pressure caused by a nail, corn or hard skin. They will be able to offer advice on how to manage or in some cases prevent problems re-occurring.
Other common foot problems which may need treatment and advice are; verrucae, athletes foot, blisters, chilblains, hammer toes and regular nail cutting.
Underlying medical conditions such as Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis and increasing age mean the foot is more susceptible to developing problems and need extra care.
