In a lot of cases, we will suggest a nail avulsion treatment that removes the ingrown part of the toenail. But this treatment is best performed when the infection’s associated swelling and inflammation is minimal. Your GP may be able to prescribe antibiotics to clear the infection prior to having a nail avulsion treatment.

We sell orthotics for almost every foot. Our shelves have reputable industry names such as Formorthotics. And for those that need something a little more customised, Craig Hughes can prescribe made-to-order orthotics to suit high arches, flat feet, and everything in between.
