Foot Revival Treatments
The Foot Revival treatment is, quite frankly, what it says on the tin, the rejuvination of your feet. The consultation starts off with an uplifting footbath and, if you are a new patient or diabetic, a detailed assessment of your feet will follow. The treatment required will be concluded with a moisturising foot massage. Then entire treatment will last about 30 minutes.

If your feet ache whilst or after walking or perhaps first thing out of bed, then you definitely need a biomechanical assessment. Ignoring these symptoms can lead to, if not already, ankle, knee, hip and lower-back pain.
What To Expect
The assessment consists of testing muscle strength, joint range of motion, gait analysis and the angular relationship between your feet, ankles, legs, knees, hips, spine and shoulders. Resolution often requires exercises and a prescribed insole.
The entire procedure is carried out within 1 hour under Local Anaesthetic. The offending aspect of the nail is removed and a chemical is applied to prevent re-growth. A series of re-dressing appointments will also be included to ensure you recover and heal fully from the operation.
