  • Acute and Chronic pain clinics - we investigate how and why the pain
    started, and aim to eradicate the negatives and promote the positives.
  • Nail surgery - removal of part or all of a nail, ensuring that the nail will not grow back

    it where necessary.

    improve posture and symmetry.
  • Diabetic Footcare - Regular footcare is essential for maintaining healthy feet. We can provide first class treatment and advice.
  • Sports injuries - either showing in the lower limb or back. Includes
    prevention of injuries by analysing which sports individuals are best suited to.

  • Laser therapy - Low Intensity Light Therapy. This is a 'soft' laser that

    (commonly known as heel pain)
