Footcare Conditions we treat

Diabetic Assessments / Annual Screen and Checkups

Read More

We specialise in Diabetic Footcare. We assess and treat all your podiatry needs and help reduce your risk of developing complications. This includes screening, education, prevention and wound management of diabetic ulcers. We can provide you with an advised return date (by text or letter) for your treatment and next assessment. One less thing to worry about!

High arch / low arch profile (flat foot / fallen arches)

Read More

Your foot shape determines the pressure distribution and how your foot functions. Orthotics may help realign and rebalance foot and body posture, preventing injury and pain. Orthotics can help get the foot pronation / supination balance right. 
(An orthotic is a specialised support, worn inside your shoe.) We specialise in casted bespoke orthotics (using plaster of paris bandage to take an accurate impression of the foot). Ask about the Prescription Orthotic Package.

 

Plantar fasciitis, hallux valgus, excessive pronation, morton’s metatarsalgia, heel spur.

Verrucae / Plantar Warts

Read More

Verrucae pedis or Plantar warts are caused by a virus and can closely resemble corns, so need correct diagnosis before treatment. There are a range of treatment options to get the fastest results available at Clonmel Foot Clinic.

Shin splints, ankle sprain, sports injuries

Read More

(See orthotics)

Heel pain & Plantar Fasciitis

Read More

The plantar fascia connects the heelbone to the toes, as well as supporting the arch of your foot. If it becomes strained, weak, swollen, or irritated, you can get heel pain when you stand or walk. Heel pain, especially in the morning, could be a sign of this common inflammatory condition.

Hard skin (callous/corns)

Read More

These can be caused by ill-fitting footwear, casuing excess pressure or friction; but they can also be related to poor foot structure and function. These are painlessly removed and a treatment plan provided to help prevent recurrence.

Foot odour / excessive perspiration / bromhidrosis

Read More

If you or a family member has ‘stink-foot’, you’ll know! This condition, properly termed bromhidrosis is usually the result of keratin breakdown in the presence of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweat production). The problem is rarely due to hygience issues. Ask for our special insoles that fix, not mask, the problem.

Cracked heels

Read More

Hard, cracked skin around the heels can be unsightly and painful. It is often seen in the summer months, when wearing open-backed sandals or flip-flops. This can be painlessly reduced; we stock professional-grade moisturising urea creams to prevent recurrence.

Bunions (hallux valgus)

Read More

Hallux valgus (Bunions) is a deformity where the big toe deviates from its correct position. This can lead to painful pressure-points on the big toe and other parts of the foot.

Footcare during Pregnancy

Read More

General nail & skin maintenance can be a problem when it is too difficult to reach the feet, and you need to take extra care for overstressed feet carrying those extra pounds! 

Care for 'ageing feet'

Read More

Feet that have covered many miles and may be suffering from ‘wear & tear’, osteoarthritis, deminished padding on the sole, or decreased circulation. Or where it may be difficult to reach your feet, and see what you are doing for correct self-care.

Ingrown Toenails

Read More

Usually, a simple trim and nail-cutting advice will fix the problem and alleviate pain. However, if required, we specialise in nail surgery for permanent removal of a nail section (and occasionally the full nail) using local anaesthetic. This is usually performed for ingrown toenails that have failed to respond to other treatments, or are infected. Minimum time is required for recovery (usually just one day).

Orthotics

Read More

Your foot shape determines the pressure distribution and how your foot functions. Orthotics may help realign and rebalance foot and body posture, preventing injury and pain. Orthotics can help get the foot pronation / supination balance right.
(An orthotic is a specialised support, worn inside your shoe.) We specialise in casted bespoke orthotics (using plaster of paris bandage to take an accurate impression of the foot). Ask about the Prescription Orthotic Package.

 

Plantar fasciitis, hallux valgus, excessive pronation, morton’s metatarsalgia, heel spur.

Nail problems

Read More

As well as treating ingrown toe nails, we see many other conditions including involuted / convoluted nails, corns under nails, fungal nails, thickened nails, cutting difficulties. We occasionally treat finger nails too.

Athletes foot (fungal)

Ask at our Clinic for specialised treatments and advice to prevent recurrence.

Footwear advice

Things you need to know:

  • You do not need to be referred by your G.P. to be treated here at the Clinic!  But if you are referred, we liaise carefully with your G.P. We are keen to work closely with your G.P. to ensure we have done our part, and your feet are in tip-top condition.
  • Private Health Insurance providers (VHI, Aviva, HSF, Laya etc.) can assist with treatment or orthotic costs (partially or fully), depending on your insurance plan. Check with your provider for details.
  • You will receive a text message the day before your appointment and when your optimum time for further care (if required) is due.
  • Many of our Patients choose to pre-book their future appointments, and come as often as they like, rather than waiting until problems arise. Advance bookings allows you to get the most convenient treatment time for you and increases success of your treatment plan for pain-free comfortable feet.
  • Please provide us with a list of your current medication / allergies, for our confidential records (see our privacy policy here).
