Foot Care

12th March 2019 / Monthly News

Kerry Perkins is a Registered Foot Health Practitioner and has many years of experience as a Registered Nurse, running successful clinics in the nursing profession.

Kerry advocates that, be it day-to-day movement, walking, cycling, running… whatever the activity, feet are our most constant ally. Feet are the foundation of our lifestyles.

Maintaining healthy feet is a MUST for us all. Kerry is able to ensure that general nail cutting is performed correctly and any problematic areas of concern are addressed.

There are numerous conditions that can adversely affect feet:

  • Corns: a cone shape build-up of hard skin, causing pain/discomfort.
  • Calluses: thickened skin built up as a result of friction, causing pain/discomfort.
  • Diabetic: it is vital that diabetic feet are monitored regularly as they are more prone to complications. If neuropathy is present then issues can worsen.
  • Ingrown Nails: such nails are painful and can become increasing problematic.
  • Cracked Heels: formation of excessive callus and dry skin. Removal via debridement and regular skin care will aid comfort.
  • Athletes Foot: a fungal skin condition presenting as inflamed and irritated areas.

Above are some common concerns that clients present with. Kerry is also able to use her nursing knowledge to address or escalate concerns and is able to provide safe and gentle treatments, advice and offer on-going support.

To make an appointment, please contact her on 07751 718515 or call the clinic on 01473 622698.
