OUR Foot health SERVICES Essex

Foot Health Services Essex specialise in providing mobile foot health services including foot health assessments and treatments to Essex residents and care homes. Our mobile foot health services allow our clients to simply stay where they are so that assessments and treatment can be undertaken without leaving their residential care home. We also perform foot health home visits for Essex residents who are suffering from mobility or mental health issues which prevent them from attending a chiropodist clinic easily. All our foot health services are carried out by a fully qualified foot health practitioner and qualified general nurse with over 25 years of healthcare experience. All our equipment, dressings and creams etc. are carried with us so all you need to do is provide a space for our assessment and treatment services to take place. Our headquarters are located in Westcliff-on-Sea and we service all types of feet / foot pain / treatments across Essex. Contact us today or call 3333 447817 to make an appointment.

Our Foot Health services Essex include:

  • Corn or Calluses - Please call 03333 447817 to schedule an appointment. We will be able to discuss any underlying health conditions or lifestyle issues which may make your corns or calluses worse. Corns and calluses are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop when your skin tries to protect itself against friction and pressure. They most often develop on the feet and toes causing discomfort. If you have diabetes or another condition that causes poor blood flow to your feet, you are at greater risk of complications from corns and calluses. Please call 03333 447817 to schedule an appointment.
  • Dementia Foot Care If your loved one has dementia and developed issues like ingrown toenails, corns, or infections, they may not be able to tell you straight away. We understand that people with dementia or in dementia care can struggle to communicate discomfort, which often turns into agitation or exacerbates symptoms of dementia. We are experienced in dealing with clients with dementia or learning disability or other special needs. It is important that their feet are checked regularly for any health problems. Call us on 03333 447817 to book an assessment.
  • Diabetic Foot Care - If you suffer from diabetes and are experiencing foot pain, please call Essex Foot Health on 03333 447817 to schedule an appointment. About half of all people with diabetes have diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage). Nerve damage can cause you to lose feeling in your feet. Nerve damage, along with poor blood flow—another diabetes complication—puts you at risk for developing a foot ulcer (a sore or wound) that could get infected and not heal well.
  • Fungal Nail Treatment   - If you believe you may have a fungal foot infection and are experiencing foot pain, please call Essex Foot Health on 03333 447817 to schedule an appointment. A fungal nail infection occurs from the overgrowth of fungi in, under, or on the nail. Fungi thrive in warm, moist environments, so this type of environment can cause them to naturally overpopulate. Fungal infections affect toenails more commonly because toes are usually confined to shoes. Older adults have an elevated risk of getting fungal nail infections because they have poorer circulation. The nails also grow more slowly and thicken as we age.
  • Gait Analysis -Essex Foot Health can provide a Gait analysis. It enables us to identify whether your body is compensating or favouring a particular leg. The major focus of gait analysis is to measure the degree of pronation. Pronation is the natural inward roll of the foot as the outside part of the heel strikes the ground. This roll acts as a shock absorber for the leg and body, optimally distributing the force of the impact of the heel hitting the ground. The aim is to counter-balance the over- or underpronation to help to reduce the risk of injury and establish a comfortable walking movement.

2.Hard skin and cracked skin removal

Hard Skin/Cracked Skin Removal Cracked heels can be associated with diabetes, hypothyroidism, and peripheral vascular disease. Some people with diabetes have autonomic neuropathy. If damage occurs in the nerves to the sweat glands, the resultant xerosis can leave the skin hard. In patients with hypothyroidism, the lower metabolic rate also reduces the degree of sweat produced, giving rise to xerosis.
