We provide a range of chiropody and podiatry services. We specialise in musculoskeletal/biomechanical assessments for people with long term injuries / painful conditions. We look at the foot and leg structures (up to the hip) as a kinetic chain which helps us to determine the cause of the pain/chronic injury, not just treat the symptoms. We provide manual and electro therapies to reduce pain and assist with quicker rehabilitation. We charge affordable prices for Extra Corporeal Shockwave Therapy treatment. Find out more about this therapy.
Our chiropody services include nail cutting, fungal/problem nail treatments, nail surgery, callus and corn removal, verruca treatment, diabetic foot checks amongst others.
Our practitioners hold a 3 year Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Podiatry, our modules included anatomy, physiology, medicine, pharmacology and biomechanics. Dee Smith also holds further qualifications and has a Masters’ Degree (MSc) in Clinical Biomechanics which covered modules including paediatric biomechanics. Our gait analysis equipment is unique to the North of England. We offer London care at a Yorkshire price!

I was a new patient and happen to mention that I had a calf cramp the night before which was tender. The Podiatrist listened to my pulses with a Doppler and assessed my calf. Within 40 minutes I was in A & E and on Warfarin as I had a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) which if left untreated could have killed me! Podiatry saved my life thank you.

I cannot stress how brilliant the service is. I had been limping for 6 months, seen physiotherapists and a foot surgeon with not much improvement. As soon as I walked into the clinic, the podiatrist spotted the root cause of the problem, one leg considerably shorter than the other. After 3 treatments, I am no longer limping and can get on with my busy lifestyle. I was impressed by the equipment in the clinic, which enabled me to monitor my progress by seeing actual footage of my gait!
Previous treatment from another podiatrist left me very nervous to have my ingrowing-toe nails treated and I don’t want nail surgery to remove them. Dee and Sarah have put me at ease and I no longer need regular treatment as the symptoms have subsided considerably.
