Biomechanics & Gait

Pain or recurring injury when walking or running affects all aspects life and health. The foot changes over time, and imbalance, malalignment and pressure can cause joint pains, bunions and hard skin.

Our specialist podiatrist assesses the mechanics of the foot and recommends treatments for a wide range of foot and leg problems related to walking, running and dance, just like tuning the engine of a car.

Medical Pedicure

Our award-winning, experienced HCPC registered professionals provide medical pedicures that reach parts not accessible with beauty pedicures.

Our podiatrists use medical instruments, sterilised to the highest standards, and advanced equipment, to painlessly restore feet back to their former glory and leave looking great and feeling fantastic.

Low Level Laser Therapy

Leigham Practice has been a leader and pioneer in the use of Low Level Laser Therapy for over 20 years. Treatment is painless, has no side effects and is evidence-based, with over 800 research articles and studies over the last four decades for a huge range of problems associated with injury, surgery, ill-health and disease.

Treatment works by tapping into a process very similar to photosynthesis, where light is converted into chemical energy and accelerates normal biological functioning, including healing, repair, recovery and regeneration.

Leigham Practice verruca treatments are led by a former NHS Verruca Services manager and we are one of the most experienced clinics in the country in treating this painful and persistent problem.

At your initial assessment we will make a diagnosis and discuss various options available for your problem and treatment can usually be started at the same appointment. We have a range of highly effective treatments available to suit all the family.

What people say about us

“I used the services of a gentleman called Gavin for foot treatment in December 2022, we are now in March 2023 and the issue has not come back as it had before. I cannot sing Gavin's praises enough, thank you Leigham Practice for being on my doorstep and helping with my foot problem.”


“Daud's knowledge was really good as was his explanation of the problem I have. He gave me treatment options and didn't force anything upon me only suggested what I could do. He was professional and friendly, amazing young man.”


“I had a good chat with Candice at reception which made me feel at ease. The Podiatrist Gavin attended to my feet, got the corns out painlessly which is a first. And tidied up my nails and rough heels. I can now look at my toe nail without feeling ashamed. I also learned a lot more about my foot health and most importantly that I don't have to live in pain with that imbedded painful corn. Even if it re-appears I know where to go to get help. Gavin was a lovely man and you can tell he cares for you. Your not just a patient and more like a friend. Even the patients that went before me I could hear them greeting him and him them enquiring how they were. And on leaving the same level of genuine friendliness and care. A complete 100% customer service from booking the appointment to arriving at the surgery and treatment.”


“Every treatment always helps significantly with my difficult feet, but the last one has restored flexibility to a toe joint after years, and thereby changed my whole gait, my ability to wear shoes, and, naturally, everything I do other than sit still. I shall soon be driving the 160 miles from where I live to his consulting room.”


“I had painful corns and calluses on my feet and came across Leigham Practice. I called and got an appt the same day and was seen by Dr Abdirahman who was very skilled and removed them within minutes. He also gave good tips and suggestions on how to manage and prevent them going forward. The reception staff were also lovely and professional. Thank you for the brilliant service!”


“I came to see Gavin after YEARS of issues with veruccas. I had tried everything and was turned away by numerous specialists… until I came to Leigham Practice. I can’t thank you enough, within a few weeks my feet had completely cleared up. I have waited a while to post this review as to be honest I expected them to come back, but they haven’t! Thank you Gavin!”


“I had three awful and painful corns on my right foot. Daud was very professional and got rid of them very swiftly. I would highly recommend this place. My foot is healing nicely.”


“I've attended the Leigham Practice on and off over several years for various foot problems, and always been extremely happy with the treatment I've received, to the extent that they've even successfully cured annoying little problems that I'd been given to understand elsewhere couldn't be treated and had to 'just take their course'. They always go the extra mile to make sure that everything that can be done is done, and always in my case very successfully. Not only is their standard of treatment superb, but it's always a pleasure to attend, because everyone from the therapists to the receptionists is so friendly and kind, and genuinely interested in you. I'd never hesitate to recommend the Leigham Practice to anyone.”


Why have Chiropody / Podiatry at Leigham Practice?

If you’re asking why come to Leigham Practice, you are asking the right question – ‘why?’. If you have a problem, many professionals are concerned about finding out what your symptoms relate to, but by focusing on what the problem is you end up just treating the symptoms.

What’s the difference between Chiropody and Podiatry?

They are the same. Chiropody was a very British term for healthcare professionals who treat foot problems. The rest of the world knows the profession as Podiatry. During the 90’s, the profession began to use the international term and today Chiropody and Podiatry mean exactly the same thing.

What do Podiatrists treat?

Very simply – problems affecting the feet, or problems with walking and running. We could be assessing a child whose parents have noticed them walking a bit oddly, or seeing problems affecting adults when they walk or run. We could be treating nails problems, or infections, or painful hard skin. We could be treating foot pain or helping people recover from injury or surgery. We could be managing wounds or ulcers, or helping people with complex foot problems due to disease, such as Rheumatoid Disease, or Diabetes. If you’ve a foot problem, just ask and we’ll tell you what we can do to help.
