WE ARE HERE TO HELP
Podiatrists are the same as Chiropodists, it’s just a more modern term. At The Foot Room, we pride ourselves on first-class footcare. We are specialists in feet and are trained to assess, diagnose and treat all foot conditions without the need for a GP referral. Our facilities are bright, light and modern and there’s always a warm welcome. You can book online for most of our services here.
Traditional Podiatry or Chiropody is our most popular treatment in our Longridge and Broughton clinics. Nails are cut, filed and thickness reduced, if required. Any dry, hard skin or corns will be gently removed and cracked heels smoothed. Moisturiser is applied to finish.
All patients that are new to the practice will need to book a New Patient Foot Health Assessment. The circulation to the feet, sensation and general foot condition will be assessed. As part of our duty of care, a treatment plan will then be discussed, agreed and initial treatment and advice will be given. Conditions treated include fungal nails and ingrowing toenails.
Bio – mechanical assessments
Do you have pain in your feet or legs? Are you walking comfortably?
After taking a history of your symptoms, our Podiatric MSk specialist will use biomechanically assess the joints of your feet and lower legs whilst sitting and standing. Using the treadmill, in our Longridge clinic, we can use video gait analysis to assess your walking and body position for any abnormality which could cause symptoms such as painful knees, recurrent sprains, sports injuries, walking problems and persistent aches and pains.
Treatment can include advice, stretches and / or orthotics (arch supports).
Allow our Podiatrist to open the door to a world of perfectly pampered feet. Been for pedicures before, but left without that complete silky, smooth finish?
We offer spa pedicures which all include professional podiatry treatment.
The Prende Spa Range contains essential oils of lavender, frankincense, myrrh, orange and bay. The warm paraffin therapy wax treatment decreases calluses on the feet, soothes the skin and provides symptomatic relief for conditions such as arthritis, eczema and chilblains.
Specialist Verruca Treatment
Fed up of those ugly verrucas?
We offer a range of verruca treatments from professional caustic application to the very successful, state of the art, Swift microwave verruca therapy.
During your assessment the various treatment options will be discussed. The most suitable treatment plan will be agreed and commenced. For more information about Swift Microwave therapy click here.
Patients from Broughton can be seen at our Longridge clinic for this specialised treatment.
Painful ingrowing toenails? Always making things worse by “having a dig” yourself?
We have the solution. From routine care to provide instant relief, to nail surgery for a permanent solution, we have the skills and expertise to solve your problem.
Want to complete the look?
Dr’s Remedy nail varnish was developed by a Podiatrist as an alternative to traditional polish that notoriously damages the nails. It contains no formaldehyde or toluene, whilst still being long-lasting. Instead, it is enriched with tea-tree oil, lavender, wheat protein and vitamins C and E, which can improve the quality of your nails.
Dr’s Remedy can be applied after any treatment. Please request this when making an appointment and don’t forget to bring your flip-flops or sandals to wear afterwards.
We also stock a retail range of Dr’s Remedy base coat, hydration treatment, nail colours and top coats.
Stuck for a gift?
We can provide gift vouchers in denominations of £5 or for the total cost of any treatment.
They are supplied in a wallet and silver envelope. If required, we can take payment over the phone
and post the vouchers either to you or to your lucky recipient.
