Liverpool Podiatry | Services

Liverpool Podiatry is pleased to offer the following podiatric services:

Routine podiatry

Routine podiatry covers what is sometimes referred to as traditional 'chiropody' treatment. Many routine podiatry complaints are a source of discomfort; they can also be a cause of embarrassment. The good news is that many conditions can be treated quickly and painlessly in clinic, with immediate improvement in pain and discomfort, as well as appearance.

Conditions regularly treated at Liverpool Podiatry include:

Musculoskeletal Podiatry

Musculoskeletal podiatry is a specialism within podiatry that focuses solely on muscular and orthopedic complaints affecting the foot and lower limb. This means that if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort in the muscles, tendons, or joints of the foot, ankle, leg, or hip, particularly when walking or weightbearing, then Liverpool Podiatry may be able to help you.

Musculoskeletal conditions routinely treated at Liverpool Podiatry include:

If you have a musculoskeletal complaint we recommend that you have a biomechanical assessment. A biomechanical assessment assesses the mechanics of your foot and lower limb, assesses muscle strength/tightness, and includes a gait analysis. The gait analysis is a vital element of the biomechanical assessment as it allows the podiatrist to assess the interaction between the foot and the ground during each stage of the gait cycle. This ensures that you receive the correct treatment.

Orthoses Provision

Liverpool Podiatry prescribes orthoses as and when required. Orthoses are inserts that are worn inside the shoes; they can be either bespoke or readymade. Bespoke orthoses are custom made to your requirements. If you require orthoses you will need to have a biomechanical assessment first, at the end of the assessment your podiatrist will discuss with you the orthoses options.

If you would like more information on orthoses please contact us.

Paediatric Podiatry

Paediatric podiatry, as the name suggests, is dedicated to the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of foot and lower limb problems affecting children.

Nail Surgery

Liverpool Podiatry can, when necessary, perform nail surgery. Nail surgery is a surgical procedure that involves removing either a part of, or all of, a problematic nail. Nail surgery is performed under local anesthesia; this means that during the surgery you will feel no pain. At Liverpool Podiatry nail surgery is subject to an assessment.

Nail Reconstruction

Liverpool Podiatry is pleased to offer a nail reconstruction service. Nail reconstruction is a cosmetic, as well as a therapeutic treatment that involves re-building the toenail. Nail reconstruction is suitable for unsightly fungal nails, damaged nails, or those with no nail at all, either due to trauma or surgery.

Nail reconstruction does not damage the natural toenail or inhibit its growth. It is suitable for everyone, including diabetics.

If you would like to discuss nail re-construction further please contact us.

Injection Therapies

Liverpool Podiatry offers the following injection therapies:

Ostenil injections are suitable for the treatment of hallux limitus, an osteoarthritic condition that affects the big toe joint. Ostenil injections help to alleviate pain, and increase function at the big toe joint.

Steroid injections help to reduce the inflammation associated with a number of soft tissue and joint problems affecting the foot. The steroids ability to reduce inflammation means that it can relieve any pain that is associated with inflammation.
