Painful Toes

There are many reasons for painful toes from ingrown toenails to painful corns. However many conditions affect toe joints, such as arthritis, gout or infection. Badly fitting footwear can also escalate toe pain and deformity.

Pain in the big toe is common from arthritis to the effects of bunion deformity. Gout can also lead to a very painful big toe.

Treating toe problems can be quick and simple from treatment of corns and callus to removal of ingrowing nails. However, pain in the toe joint can also be treated from footwear changes to splinting with silicone toe props. In some case therapeutic option such as Shockwave Therapy can achieve significant pain reduction. Where surgery may be the most appropriate option our team would refer directly privately or where more appropriate via your GP.

I have been seeing Louise for a complex muscle wasting disease for nearly a year now. She has been helping to reduce pain in my back, shoulder and neck area. This week I had the muscle building treatment and I can honestly say that my posture is so much better and I can now lift my arms without any pain. I cannot wait to see what the future brings. Thank you so much Louise.

Today I had a long overdue ingrowing toenail issue resolved with Gold Standard footcare. Louise was a a brilliant example of a professional that takes pride in their work and made the whole procedure painless and relaxing. As a person that has had a previously bad experience on the NHS that left me worried about the procedure I can assure anyone going for nail surgery that with Gold Standard footcare you have nothing to worry about and the experience will be pain free and quick. Thank you Louise.
