A Chiropodist can improve and relieve a number of ailments, some of the more common issues we deal with are:
Chiropody problems, like repeated hard skin and corns, may be due to problems with the foot structure or type of shoe worn. The chiropodist may recommend podiatry treatment to alleviate
A chiropody appointment will include a consultation, examination of the feet and treatment.
Often the problem with skin is due to excessive force in a certain area of the foot. This can be caused by foot shape, or something as simple as poorly fitting shoes or conditions such as hard skin, callouses, corns and ingrowing toenails.
Verrucae are also common and can be treated with Cryotherapy (freezing with liquid nitrogen), Swift microwave or Needling. Surgery can also be performed for ingrowing toe nails.
Chiopody appointments have an allocated appointment time of 30 minutes. Please be advised that the treatment may not fill the time, it is allocated to allow for the treatment of the most extreme cases.

INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS
Frequently asked questions by patients considering treatment using Swift microwave therapy.
WHAT IS SWIFT®?
Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licenced for the general treatment of skin lesions in Podiatry and Dermatology. Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue.
DOES IT HURT?
Like many treatments for skin lesions, some minor discomfort may be experienced. Before treatment your podiatrist or dermatologist may decide to reduce the lesion with a blade. Pain levels vary from person to person but most people undergoing Swift liken it to a pain similar to an injection or a scratch, lasting 2 - 3 seconds then quickly subsiding.
WHAT CAN I DO AFTER TREATMENT?
In some cases, the treated area may feel sore but will not prevent you undertaking normal daily activities.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. In most cases, 3 treatments are recommended. Your Podiatrist or Dermatologist will be able to discuss this with you.
CAN ANYONE RECEIVE THIS TREATMENT?
With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment. Your Podiatrist or Dermatologist will carry out an assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this.

How Microwave Therapy Works
Infected tissue can exist several millimetres below the skins surface and can often be difficult to treat using traditional methods, resulting in untreated tissue or significant damage.
Swift delivers a precise, highly controlled energy dose. As microwaves travel into the tissue, water molecules begin to collide and create localised cell heat, which quickly destroys infected tissue.
In just seconds the treatment is complete and the healing cascade begins immediately. Treated tissue is quickly replaced, repaired and regenerated.
