Foot Monkey Podiatry

Foot Monkey Podiatry and Rehab

footmonkey clinic

Founded in 2015, Footmonkey Podiatry has pushed the boundaries of podiatry care to ensure patients get the best treatment possible. Run by Gwyn Malcolm, BSc Podiatry MCPod, the practice was built from the ashes of an old chiropody clinic and we have moved on from the ‘just nail and corn treatments of old’. We have done this by:

  • clinical equipment upgrades
  • specialist instruments which are smaller and offer more comfort to our patients
  • the latest techniques for nail surgery
  • insoles for all - from high quality/low cost formthotics to full custom and bespoke orthotics to suit all budgets
  • full diabetes care including Doppler vascular assessments, EKG’s (checking for atrial fibrillation), advice and care packages for every eventuality

New to 2020 is the pain and rehab clinic. Following on from care already given Footmonkey now utilises ASA class 4 laser therapy for pain management, injury and strains/sprains. This therapy works alongside standard stretching and rehabilitation treatments to significantly reduce your recovery time. For example, plantar fasciitis is reduced down in less than 6 weeks and pain is virtually gone after the first treatment. Although some pain may return during the week just before your second treatment, by using laser therapy you reclaim your life back almost instantly.

Footmonkey undertakes over 30 hours a year retraining for new procedures and specialist training to increase our scope of practice, investing tens of thousands on new equipment to help all our patients carry on with a long and comfortable life.

New to Footmonkey and continuing with our push to banish pain and injury we have secured a magnetotherapy bed. So what is it? Magnetotherapy is a physical therapy based on the application of specific magnetic fields on the human body, indicated for the treatment of pain and also of inflammations and oedemas. Clinical studies have demonstrated that magnetotherapy can be effective in the treatment of osteoporosis and to promote both fracture sealing and soft tissue repair and healing. The functioning of ASA Magnetotherapy, based on the scientific principles of ELF (Extremely Low Frequency 1–100 Hz) pulsed magnetic fields, is characterized by low frequency and low intensity. It can be used, even in automatic mode, either by itself or in combination with other therapies, it can be applied in many fields: Physical therapy, Rheumatology, Sports Medicine, Orthopaedics, Traumatology, Geriatrics. Magnetotherapy works in presence of orthopaedic braces, casts, or external and internal fixation devices, after a specialized evaluation. The treatment can be applied with clothes on.
