Podiatry

What we do

The Abington Clinic offers a range of podiatry treatments to diagnose and treat minor disorders and abnormalities of the lower limb.  At our specialist podiatry clinic in Northampton, we give professional advice on the prevention of foot problems and on proper care of the foot, as well as alleviating pain and preventing or correcting deformity.

At The Abington Clinic, we review and treat every patient on an individual basis in order to help overcome and correct the problem areas quickly and effectively, so that we can restore you to optimal heath and help to prevent further mobility problems.

What we treat

As professional podiatrists we believe that poor foot function can often be the cause of other symptoms including lower back pain, hip, knee, ankle or foot pain. To help us understand more, we use gait analysis to determine if the way you walk or run is causing the problem and then treat you accordingly.

Our podiatrists are able to diagnose and treat a full range of conditions including:

  • Hard skin, corns, dry and cracked heels
  • Verrucae
  • Athletes foot
  • Thickened/discoloured nails
  • Provision of insoles and orthotics
  • Ingrowing toe nails including conservative treatment or nail surgery
  • Diabetic and rheumatoid feet
  • Unstable ankles
  • Achilles tendon Injuries
  • Shin splints
  • Low arch (flat feet) or cavoid (high arched feet)
  • Tendonitis
  • Bunions

The benefits

Most of us spend quite a bit of time on our feet and when not looked after properly, feet can become subject to disorders and ailments, making walking and/or movement of the foot painful or uncomfortable. But did you know that feet can actually be one of the first places to show signs of conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, heart disease and diabetes? So keeping your feet in healthy working order through regular podiatry treatments can have huge benefits.

As part of any treatment, podiatrists also look at and give advice on the way your body is structured when pressure is on the foot and when no pressure is applied, this can then help to change your walking pattern to allow you to move freely,  alleviate any pain and prevent future damage to your feet.

After your podiatry treatment at The Abington Clinic, you can expect to feel much better.  Plus, as part of your treatment we use our specialist expertise and techniques to help and advise you on how to recognise and prevent similar type disorders in the future.

Podiatry treatment prices

As we deal with people and their injuries on an individual basis, no course of podiatry is ever the same. As a result, prices can vary depending upon the nature of your injury and the course of treatment or therapy that is followed.

Once we have had an opportunity to assess and review your case and before beginning any treatment, we will always advise you of the type of costs that you can expect. Only when you are 100% happy will we start to treat your disorder or foot function problem and then manage your successful recovery.
