In other cases, Fitter Feet For Life, as health care professionals, will offer you an initial consultation at which we will take a full medical history and do basic tests such as checking the blood circulation and feeling in your feet. We also check the way you walk and move your lower leg joints, using video slow motion gait analysis.
Podiatric surgery is the surgical management of the bones, joints and soft tissues of the foot and associated structures. The conditions treated can include problems caused by bunions, arthritis, toe deformities and inflammation of the tissues of the foot, trapped nerves, plantar fasciitis and ganglion.
Pain in your knees, back, shoulders and feet are often linked to your gait and posture. By analysing how you move we create tailor made orthoses to realign your posture and get you moving effectively and pain free.
Verrucae are viral growths on the foot. Fitter Feet will examine your feet and recommend one of a number of available treatments, depending on the depth, number and age of your verrucae - and similar moles on your hands and feet.

We can treat plantar fasciitis, a common painful heel condition, permanently cure ingrown nails, and treat painful skin lesions.We are also specially trained to prevent diabteic feet from developing high pressure ulcers.

How does Diabetes affect my feet?
One of the first ways in which diabetes may affect your feet is through the loss of sensation within your feet, often starting at the toes. You may experience a cotton wool like feeling or numbness in your feet, this is called neuropathy. Your chances of losing feeling in your feet increases with the number of years that you have diabetes and research suggests that up to one in three people with diabetes have some loss of sensation (called neuropathy).
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a condition that causes inflammation in many joints of the body. Unlike osteoarthritis which is caused by wear and tear, rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease where a faulty immune system attacks the tissue that lines and cushions the joints, leaving them swollen, painful and stiff.
