NEW YEAR, NEW GOALS, NEW RESULTS

Updated: Feb 2

Firstly we would like to wish you all a happy new year, welcome 2022!

thank you all for your kind Christmas cards and gifts we were completely overwhelmed by your generosity.


As we head into our 9th year of business we are still as passionate about helping our patients keep active and pain free as ever, we have some amazing things happening in the clinic this year and we cannot wait to share them all with you


As you may know we now have 3 podiatrists on the staff team can offer you a wide range of treatment options to help you with all your lower limb health needs.


We have our Diabetic Foot specialist podiatrist Karishma Domah BSc( Hons), RCPod, HCPC reg who specialises in the prevention of diabetic foot complications such as ulcerations and amputations. Did you know seeing a podiatrist if you have diabetes can help reduce the chance of a diabetic foot complication


Diabetes leads to 169 amputations a week.

That's 24 amputations a day and 1 amputation every hour. Going to your foot checks and knowing the signs to look out for could prevent this from happening.

Have you made any New Years resolutions ?


if one of your new years resolutions is to get rid of your stubborn verrucas then NOW is the time to start your treatment, if you have tried it all with no results then we can help with our SWIFT treatment.


WHAT IS SWIFT®?

Swift is a new technology, developed in the UK, which has been licenced for the general treatment of skin lesions in Podiatry and Dermatology. Swift uses microwave energy which is delivered through a special probe applied to the skin to treat the affected tissue.

DOES IT HURT?

It is not uncommon for patients to feel a sharp sensation, similar to an injection. Unlike most treatments for verruca, pain felt during the treatment quickly subsides, and only in rare cases is there any prolonged pain.

WHAT CAN I DO AFTER TREATMENT?

In some cases the treated area may feel sore but will not prevent you undertaking normal daily activities.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

This is dependent on how you respond to treatment. In some cases, you may need more than one treatment (these can be from 14 days to over a month apart depending on the response). Your Podiatrist will be able to discuss this with you.

CAN ANYONE RECEIVE THIS TREATMENT?

With a few exceptions, most people with skin lesions would be able to have this treatment. Your Podiatrist will carry out an assessment prior to treatment and be able to advise you on this.



contact us today for more information about how to start your swift journey today







We hope 2022 brings you joy and happiness

Best Wishes from all of us here at Next Step Podiatry
