Chiropody involves the treatment of nail and skin lesions. Common conditions that we treat at the clinic are:
Thick mass of hard skin usually forming on the balls of your feet, heels and toe joints.We reduce the excessive overlying tissue to a smooth finish with a scalpel and often finish with a lightly abrasive drill. The treatment is pain free.
Localised thickened area forming on a bony prominence. Classically on the outside of the little toe joint or on the balls of the feet. We recuce the thickened mass of tissue using a scalpel and then cover/dress the area.Often deflective padding or deflective insoles are recommended to reduce the rate of recurrance.
Either one side or both sides of the toenail curve in towards the flesh. If they penetrate the soft flesh at the side of the toe often bacteria enters the cut and infection results.Treatment involves removal of the offending spur of nail with or without anaesthetic depending on the severity of the problem. In chronic situation when conservative treatment is unsuccessful, we recommend that the side of the nail plate is permanently removed (nail surgery)
Essentially, these are warts on the soles of the feet caused by the HPV (human papilloma virus). We treat these lesions by first reducing the overlying tissue and then using either an acid based preperation, cryotherapy(cold spray) or needling the lesion under local anaesthesia to induce an immune response.
Thick hard skin with deep cracks.We treat this by reducing the thick tissue and applying a strong emollient cream(moisturiser)
The coloured, thickened mass of infected nail tissue is reduced using a water spray drill and either a course of antifungal lacquer is prescribed or we recommend you ask your doctor for a course of oral terbinafine (oral antifungal drug)

Bethany Skinner BSc Pod
Hi, my name is Bethany and I have recently joined the team at Shand Podiatry.
I graduated from Queen Margaret University in 2021 with Bcs Hons in Podiatry.
I started my career working for NHS Grampian before making the decision to join Shand Podiatry in April of this year.
My interest in podiatry started when I was 15. I was curious to learn about an injury I had sustained through highland dancing. This interest while being treated led me to pursue an education and career in podiatry.
In my free time I still enjoy highland dancing although no longer competitively. I also enjoy helping out on the family farm and spending time with my friends and family.
I am looking forward to taking the next step in my career, and advancing my scope of practice.

“Central location with on street parking outside. Great service and flexible appointments. I have been to the practice for various injuries and pains such as ‘shin splints’ and plantar plate issues. Treatment included; massage, acupuncture, review on how I was running (treadmill) and I was also given exercises to do at home and lots information and tips to stop the problem reoccurring. I would like to thank Scott as it never has! A family run business who care about their clients and the results.”
