Good foot health is extremely important for us all and a good podiatry treatment can make all the difference to the look and feel of your feet. Healthy feet can also make walking feel more comfortable.
Some people with MS may find it difficult to care for their own feet for various reasons, such as difficulty bending forwards due to muscle stiffness or balance problems. Some people may have sensory problems in their hands which makes it difficult to hold or apply the correct pressure on nail scissors.
Our podiatrist can offer a wide range of treatments which include:
Routine footcare treatment including cutting and filing
Cutting and treating fungal nails
Hard skin and callous reduction
Dry feet and cracked heels
Reduction of thickened toenails
How do I access podiatry at the centre?
