The Foot Clinic provides a chiropody service and treats all aspects of foot and leg pain at the following clinics: Molloys Pharmacy, Roscommon town; McGorisks Pharmacy, Athlone Towncentre; Dr Loftus’s Surgery, Boyle; and Cox’s Pharmacy, Carrick-on-Shannon.
Some of the conditions treated include:
Toenail conditions, verrucae, corns, callus, athletes foot, toenail cutting
Diabetic footcare management
Fallen arches/ flat feet, knock knees, and gait abnormality
General foot pain - orthotics assessment and prescription
The service includes the full range of chiropody treatments but the practice will focus not only on foot treatment but also on preventative and corrective measures.
In addition to a full chiropody service, a biomechanical assessment service is also provided. This assessment analyses walking patterns and in turn orthotic supports may be recommended together with an exercise programme which can greatly assist with general foot, knee, and back pain.
The clinic also stocks a range of competitively priced products to assist with the many associated foot problems that may occur, such as fallen arches, ankle pain, hammer toes, calloused feet, or painful bunions. Many of these orthotics can also help with ankle, foot, knee, hip, and back pain.
Treatment for a range of sports-related injuries including tendonitis, plantar fascitis, and heel spurs is also provided by combining exercise plans together with corrective orthotic support insoles. Customised supports are also available on request.
Adults and children are catered for, and treatment sessions start from €35. Treatment is by appointment only. Call Catriona on (087 ) 2982214.
