Podiatry Appointment Types
The Foot and Leg Clinic is a podiatry clinic located with in the Hyndland Physiotherapy Clinic in Glasgow’s West end. We are committied to providing a comprehensive range of highly skilled podiatry services in a friendly and professional environment. Podiatry (also known as chiropody) is the diagnosis and treatment by podiatrists (chiropodists) of diseases and other disorders of the feet. Podiatrists are health professionals who have been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
During your initial consultation your podiatrist will discuss your medical history, your podiatric concern and your expectations of treatment. The podiatrist will thoroughly assess your feet assessing any risks providing professional advice for your feet.
Routine treatment will be provided in the initial assessment and if necessary referral for the appropriate specialist will be made. If you are currently taking any medication please bring a list along, it may be helpful to bring a repeat prescription if you are on regular medication! To ensure our podiatrists can properly examine your feet and nails please remove all nail polish.
Patients should make an appointment if they have sore feet, our podiatrists can treat a number of conditions including:
- Basic foot and nail care
- Corns and calluses
- Dry, cracked skin
- Fungal nail infection
- Ingrown toe nails
- Athlete’s foot
After your initial assessment your podiatrist may have recommended you for a routine appointment. A review appointment may consist of nail cutting, callous reduction (hard skin removal), corn removal, verruca treatment and ingrown toenail care.
Please be aware our podiatrists will often be using sharp instruments.
Please ensure to remove any nail polish before your appointment so our podiatrists can assess your toenails. Our podiatrists will advise you on how regularly to attend our clinic to keep your feet in tip top shape. Your routine appointment will leave you walking on air!
Simple Nail Cut
Some of our patients only need their toenails cut. Our simple nail care service offers a relaxed environment for patients to have their nails cut by a professional. Many of our patients find it difficult to cut their own toenails due to other medical problems that make bending down difficult. Our podiatrists can treat long, thick and fungal nails in this service. Whilst cutting our patients toenails we check their general foot health to ensure their feet are always at their best. For an ingrown toenail please make an appointment for an initial assessment.
A relaxing way to have your feet looking their best. Whilst in the safe hands of our podiatrists your feet will be pampered: nails trimmed and filed, any hard skin buffed away, your feet thoroughly moisturised and finally your toenails polished with a colour of your choice.
This is our favourite treatment to prepare your feet for a special occasion or for treating yourself before going on holiday. Our podiatrists are degree trained specialists who will assess the health of your feet whilst treating them to ensure that they are both looking and feeling their best!
