We are a clinic offering chiropody and podiatry services in Eastgate, Leeds City Centre. A podiatrist (also known as a chiropodist) is a health professional who deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs.
We are Podiatrists and Chiropodists and routine appointments focus on conditions on the surface of your foot like:-
- Hard skin
- Nail cutting
- Simple in-growing toenails
- Nail Reconstruction
- Biomechanical Assessment
- Nail Surgery
- Diabetic Foot Assessment
- Foot Pressure Assessment
Young feet, old feet, working feet and party feet can all develop chiropody problems.
Here we look at the link between the foot function and pain. Common biomechanical problems chirpodists look at include:-
- Metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of the foot)
- Planter fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- Knee & lower back pain
- Fallen arches
Nail Reconstruction Available with Wilde-Pedique
As chiropodists we can construct a damaged nail using Wilde-Pedique UV gel. This reconstructed nail/s can last up to 3 months. It is ideal in cases where:-
- Building a new nail on nail spurs after having nail surgery ~ removal of the total nail
- Disguising unsightly nails eg fungal infected nails or damaged nails through trauma
- Replacing lost nails through trauma eg football injury etc
And there is a choice of shades to suit you. Just contact us to book a

Often managed with routine chiropody techniques, they are sometimes painful enough to require use of local anesthetic prior to treatment. Chronic problems and deformed nails can be permanently altered by removing part or all of the nail and preventing re-growth. This is a cosmetic procedure and involves a local anaesthetic. The technique has over a 90% success rate in preventing future pain.
Diabetes, rheumatoid and high-risk feet
Diabetes and rheumatic conditions affect everyone differently, but in general, the blood and nerve supply to the feet is changed and it affects the body's ability to heal wounds. Foot assessment, treatment and advice is guided according to the severity of the condition in each individual patient. Diabetic & Rheumatoid patients with foot pain or wounds are offered urgent appointments, so please let us know of your condition when booking an appointment.
