Common Foot Problems

Foot discomfort does not have to be a part of your everyday life and in many cases one consultation may be all that is required to obtain effective relief of your pain.

If you suffer with painful corns and callouses, ingrowing toe-nails, joint pains, arch or heel pains, painful ankles, shins or knees, then help is at hand! At Coleraine Foot Clinic we take a special interest in these feet and give them the careful handling they deserve.

Corns and callouses are a common problem with older feet and expert removal of the painful corns and hard skin along with protective and cushioning insoles helps to keep the older person comfortable and active!

Circulation problems can often lead to ulcers that require treatment and protection. Regular specialist care helps to identify potential problem areas and maintains good foot health.

Hammer toes and bunions are a common feature of the older foot and special toe correctors are available to protect toes from pressure and friction.

Ingrowing Toenail
An ingrowing toenail can be caused by a small spike of nail growing in to the skin. It can become red, swollen, tender and infected. Painful toenails can also be caused by a build up of dry or hard skin or a corn underneath the nail bed.
