Specialist management of arthritic foot problems including expert care of skin and nails. Stockists of specialist footwear to accommodate all foot shapes.
Arthritis (inflammation of the joints) is common in the feet and lower limbs and can significantly impact quality of life. Change in foot shape, due to damaged joints, can lead to areas of high pressure resulting in thickened nails, excessive callous and ulceration. Pain associated with chronic inflammation can also lead to altered gait, increasing the risk of falls. Arthritis that most commonly affects the foot and ankle includes osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus (SLE) and psoriatic arthritis.

We also offer long-term management options including off-loading devices, padding, toe props, footwear advice and orthotics.
