FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We often get asked these questions regarding general treatment

Is it okay to make an appointment to just have my nails cut?

Yes, of course. We will take the time to check your feet and give any advice that we think is appropriate regarding your general foot care. The value of preventative foot care should not be underestimated!

Why has my nail changed shape?

The nails will change over time. Injuries, pressure on the nails (shoeware), changes to general health and infections in the nail can lead to changes in their long term growth. We can help to manage these issues and get your feet to their best shape.

Do you sterilise your instruments?

All of our treatments use sterilised instruments.Each time we use an instrument it has been processed through a sterilising procedure (autoclave)

I have an ongoing problem with an ingrowing toe nail. Is there a long term treatment option?

Yes, minor surgical intervention is often recommended in cases of chronic ingrown toe nails. This is done under local anaesthetic and involves only relatively minor discomfort.

Do podiatrists hurt?

We can’t speak for others but we do our best not to! We strive to be minimally invasive and cause as little discomfort as possible. Usually for things that are painful, such as removal of an ingrown toe nail, we will give a local anaesthetic prior.
