Coastal podiatry is our general podiatry clinic that offers indulgent and luxury podiatry treatments. From general nail care to corns and callus we have you covered. We look after many diabetics and other high risk patients to offer assessment, diagnosis and treatment options for a wide variety of podiatry conditions.
As our feet grow older they naturally develop more problems. But painful and uncomfortable feet are not natural or something to ‘put up with’. A lot at Coastal Podiatry to improve comfort, relieve pain and keep you on your feet for life.
What to look out for
The condition of our feet often provides early indications of conditions such as diabetes, arthritis and circulatory disease.
Look out for signs such as dry skin, brittle nails, corns and callus, burning and tingling sensations. Always seek the opinion of your Podiatrist when any of these signs occur.
The immense pressure placed upon our feet each and every step of every day causes many superficial ailments for the feet. Sometimes your feet just need a bit of pampering and we also offer a large range of aesthetic podiatry procedures and foot care products to help ensure that your feet are always at their very best.
We provide assessments for:
- Diabetic screening and foot care advice.
- Lower limb circulation (Peripheral vascular disease) using Doppler Ultrasound
- Testing sensation to detect peripheral neuropathies.
- Pressure testing.
Some of the conditions we treat:
- Corns and calluses
- Cracked and split heels
- Nail problems
- Tinea pedis (Athlete’s foot)
- Fungal nails
Healthy feet provide the foundations for a healthy body and an active life!
