We are HCPC registered health care professionals who prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs.
We can treat corns, calluses, ingrowing toenails, fungal toenails, thickened toenails, verrucas and other foot problems.
We are located close to Rugby town centre, with easy free parking in front of the surgery and no steps to the entrance.
We always try to resolve ingrowing toenails (IGTN) as simply and easily as possible, without surgery. But what do you do when they get infected and keep coming back?
Rugby Podiatry practice offers an elegant solution to recurrent ingrowing toenail - minor surgery that is quick, permanent and gives a good cosmetic result.
We have refined the technique of Partial Nail Ablation (PNA) so that post operative pain is minimal, or even completely absent. The procedure is carried out under a simple analgesic injection.
Only the sides of a troublesome ingrowing toenail are removed - although in some instances it is necessary to take away the whole nail, eg when it is very thick and diseased throughout.
Treatment is by painless burring, deep pitting and effective combinations of anti-fungal agents. It is imperative that you seek treatment as soon as you suspect that you might have this condition.
The practice policy on verrucae is generally to treat only when these growths cause pain. Methods of treatment will be discussed individually and we will often teach you how to treat effectively at home. Where a more sophisticated approach is required Tim Hughes offers Faulkner"s Needling Procedure, carried out under an ankle-block anaesthetic.
The foot in diabetes requires particular care. In addition to looking after your feet in an appropriate manner, we routinely offer yearly diabetic foot checks, issuing you with paperwork to share with your medical practitioner and diabetic nurse.
If you have pressure points under the foot we canmake you a technically superior insole or orthosis to offload damaging loads.
The practice is able to supply a number of oral antibiotics (Flucloxacillin, Amoxicillin, Erythromycin) as well as a range of other prescription only medicines, where these are indicated for foot conditions.
We can also issue signed orders to take to the pharmacy for a limited range of other prescription only items, such as painkillers.
If you have an infected ingrowing toenail, for example, we can sort that out in one stop: administer the anaesthetic injection, remove the spike of nail and supply an appropriate antibiotic. We will also let your GP know what you have been given.
I'm a new patient and was treated this morning for a very painful ingrowing toenail. The whole experience was fantastic. The receptionist and podiatrist were very friendly and clearly take a genuine interest in the patient. I felt reassured throughout and the work itself was quick and painless. I would highly recommend Rugby Podiatry.
Outstanding. From the friendly and helpful conversation on my initial phone call to experience of my appointment - a warm welcome from Francesca to the thoroughly professional treatment from Peter. So pleased I found Rugby Podiatry and I thoroughly recommend them to anyone who has a problem with their feet. Five very well deserved stars!
Fantastic, friendly and effective service. Had suffered with painful toes for a number of years. After being fitted with bespoke orthotics and getting properly fitting shoes, the pain has significantly reduced in severity and frequency, my posture and ability to walk for several miles at a time are also so much better.
Suffered with plantar fasciitis and other issues due to 12 hour shifts with flat feet and reliant on painkillers. Got fitted for some proper orthotics and within a couple of weeks my symptoms had gone! Worth every penny.
I have worn orthotics for years, but my visit to Peter Barrow for personal assessment and gait analysis was different from anything I had previously experienced. His approach is very professional, analytical and the custom made orthotics I now use have improved my ankle strength, knee pain and gait. At last I have stability in my feet and knees.
