Our Services

Initial Appointment

Samantha will listen to your foot health concerns then take a medical history detailing certain medical conditions that affect your foot health.

The circulation in your feet will be detected using a Doppler Ultrasound Scan machine. This allows me to assess your foot health from the inside.

Alongside this neuropathy testing can be carried out especially important for diabetic patients.

Diabetic foot health checks can be completed and forwarded to your GP. After the various non evasive tests are carried out we can then devise a bespoke plan dependent on the findings. This plan will include nail trimming, shaping, hard skin and callus and corn removal and a discussion on any other conditions that may be present including an assessment and advice regarding the footwear generally worn.

Each initial appointment/consultation will be allocated a full 1 hour to ensure a comprehensive evaluation and treatment program is administered. 

Fungal Nail (The Lacuna Method) Fenestration

A fungal nail infection is where fungal spores have entered the skins epidermis under the nail, this could happen after an injury, improper nail cutting techniques, or a build up of skins natural shedding flora. This enters under the nail plate and reproduces in a cavity between the plate and nail bed.

You may say ‘’But I have tried a lot of creams, oils, and potions and it has still not gone. Well the answer is – No, because all the above cannot reach the secure cavity between your nail bed and plate, leaving the bacteria nice and moist to continue reproducing.

Leaving you with discoloured thickened brittle nails often spreading to other toe nails and leading to athletes foot.

The Lacuna Method performed by Samantha involves fenestration of the nail plate.

An optional dermatophyte fungal nail test can be performed depending on the specimen that can be collected to determine positive growth of Onychomycosis.

Treatment Plans 4 appointments over 1 year

The initial appointment: the nails are fenestrated using specialist 4mm burrs (patients report a pin prick sensation). Images are taken and you are given an Onychomycosis Score Index result. Using a determined formula. Medicament is then applied. It is then highly recommended to have a routine foot health appointment 6 weeks later to ensure a sterile nail trim

The Lacuna is repeated at 3 month intervals to ensure the holes are still free of granulated tissue.

The number of holes drilled is determined by the area of fungal nail.
This procedure allows to medicament to enter the cavity and clear the infection from the nail bed..

Ingrown Toe Nails

A mild to moderate ingrown toe nail can be painful and affect a persons gait (the way in which we walk) It usually affects the big toe nails on the side. At Foot Care for You, I perform a partial nail avulsion, this involves taking a wedge section from the troubled nail edge, Instantly reducing pain! (long gone are the days of old practices requiring the removal of the nail)
Before the procedure several topics are discussed.
Footwear (adequate toe room in shoes)
Socks/hosiery
Nail Cutting techniques.
All to prevent future occurrences.

Verruca Treatment

Verruca can be stubborn and can quickly spread and become troublesome causing pain and growing larger
Verrucas are caused by a virus (HPV) Human Papilloma Virus
The virus has entered the skins epidermis layer. The skin recognises this as a foreign body and therefore tries to protect it, by forming extra layers of skin over it.
It is commonly caught in gyms, swimming pools, anywhere the skin is macerated. For example for swimming, or severely sweaty feet at a gym or exercise class as the skin acts like a sponge and whilst absorbing the water will absorb viruses as well.

Treatment for Verrucas using ©Veratop

Foot Care for You, provides a treatment called ©Veratop to our practice. It is a painless solution to the stubborn virus, it is EU approved and suitable for use from 6 years of age.
The treatment is to pare the verruca down, so it is no longer protected by hard skin. The ampoule is then applied to the verruca. It works its magic by mummifying (drying up) the virus. 10 to 15 days after treatment the foot health practitioner will return and par the foot again.
Treatments vary from 1-3 to a maximum of 6.

Biomechanics / Orthotics

Our gait (the way we walk) can alter over the years due to the wear and tear on knees, hips and back. This can cause additional problems to your already stressed joints. Internet bought products can often cause additional problems. It is highly recommended that a full health assessment of your feet can identify specific devices that can help with improving skeletal composition therefore improving your gait and providing relief to any foot pain and the additional pressure on your knees, hips and back.

Orthotics are great aids but foot health exercises should not be ignored, these are more often proven to be beneficial for example in Plantar Fasciitis. I can offer a range of options to address your concerns.

Highly recommend Sam. Her “false toe nails” are amazing … made it possible to wear flip flops again after trauma to the toe nail years ago.

Just had a first appointment with Samantha - she was recommended by a friend as I was looking for podiatrist for my elderly mum. She was punctual, friendly and attentive and went about her job in the most skilful and professional manner, offering lots of helpful advice. Will definitely be having her back on a regular basis to keep my mum’s (and my own feet) in tip top condition. Many Thanks 🙂🙂🙂

Samantha is so lovely as well as exceptionally professional and thorough. As soon as I met her she made me feel relaxed and carried out the treatment with the upmost care. My feet are better than ever. My heels were so cracked, it was embarrassing- but after a couple of treatments the difference is amazing. I would highly recommend Samantha and I will be seeing her regularly now as I have realised how important taking care of your feet is.
