Our Treatments

We offer a variety of appointment types that treat a range of conditions of the feet and lower limbs.

Routine Appointments

A 40 minute appointment (1 hour for the 1st appointment) that treats a range of conditions which include, general nail cutting,  corns, hard skin, calluses and fungal infections such as athlete’s foot and fungal infection of the nail.

Musculoskeletal Appointments

We offer a 40 minute ‘Heel Pain’ appointment for patients who are suffering from pain in their foot and/or ankle. Such pain is usually associated with conditions such as plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinopathy.

We also offer extended, hour long, musculoskeletal appointments for patients where pain is located above the ankle, where a deeper investigation of symptoms and patient biomechanics is required or when the pain is the result of a sporting injury or accident.  

 All patients who would like to book a ‘Heel Pain’ appointment must first use our online assessment tool to check whether their condition can be treated in our ‘Heel Pain’ clinic.

Ingrown toenails

Treatment for toenails that have grown into the surrounding skin. Big toes are often affected, either on one or both sides. Nails curl and pierce the skin, which becomes red, swollen and tender.

Verruca

A full consultation and assessment along with initial treatment for verrucae. We offer a variety of treatments to treat verrucae at The Vale Foot Clinic. These include traditional treatments such as the use of salicylic acids along with other methods such as cryotherapy and topical treatments such as ‘Verrutop’ that have been proven to be very effective when treating difficult warts and verruca.

Simply Nails

Nail only cutting service

Simply Nails is a new service for patients with low podiatry needs who only require a simple nail cutting service.

At the moment our Simply Nails cutting service is only available at our Barry Clinic.

Nail Surgery

Nail surgery is a small surgical operation which we undertake to help patients manage painful toe conditions such as ingrowing toe nails and involuted nails. We remove either part or all of the toenail to manage these painful conditions.

We offer a range of flexible payment options for nail surgery at the Vale Foot Clinic that allow you to spread the cost of surgery over a number of months.

To be considered for nail surgery you need to book a 30 minute nail surgery consultation with us. During this consultation we will discuss your medical history check the circulation in your limbs and assess whether you are suitable for the surgical procedure.

It reduces pain, stimulates blood flow and circulation and restarts the healing process. Shockwave therapy is used to treat chronic conditions such as plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinopathy that have not responded to traditional treatment and have been present for more than 3 months.
