Podiatrists treat the diseases and conditions of the foot. They are trained in the whole range of appropriate methods of treatment for systemic and local conditions. Treatment is limited to the foot itself, but the function of the entire lower limb is considered when planning the approach to the patient’s individual problems.
The treatment rationale adopted at Locksbottom Podiatry is to cure or improve the condition rather than to palliate or encourage repetitive treatments. We offer treadmill and video analysis to aid diagnosis, as well as more conservative services where these are more appropriate.
Our areas of interest are sports podiatry, diabetes, arthritis and childrens feet.
We treat corns, callouses, verrucas, ingrowing toenails, hammer toes, bunions, low and high arch problems, heel and forefoot pain.
We can supply a range of inshoe devices from insoles to prescription orthoses.
