A recent King’s Fund report revealed nearly half of UK adults live with some form of chronic pain. We don’t think this should be inevitable or acceptable, and neither should you.

Pain is just a symptom of an underlying problem, yet all too often only the pain itself is treated. But if the underlying problem is not addressed this simply sets up a dependency on pain suppressing or modifying drugs. However, if you can tackle the cause of pain and will find a solution.

At Leigham Practice we consider ourselves creative, innovative and pioneering when it comes to health. We have a range of specialist therapists whose vocation in life is to get you fit, fast and thoroughly. Their skills and expertise is backed up by a range of advanced therapeutic and diagnostic equipment.  We have a sense of humour, and a confident and positive outlook in our approach, but we take your health ultra-seriously and are never complacent.

Our team are the stars of our practice and they are at your disposal.

 

Foot Care Team

Operating seven days a week with four late evenings our four podiatrists, Gavin Fane, Carolyn Simpson, Hazel Etoria-King and Tom Gibson treat the majority of common foot problems, from medical pedicures, advanced verruca treatments, permanent ingrown nail correction, hard skin removal and foot pain through to complex foot and ankle problems and wound management associated with diabetes, vascular disease and illness. Further specialist services are provided by Scott Corthine, our biomechanical specialist, who treats problems in walkers, runners, dancers and athletes up to professional or elite level. As a BUPA Approved Consultant and Podiatric Foot Surgeon of 20 years’ experience, Scott can also offer comprehensive advice on both the non-surgical and surgical options available for a remarkable range of complex foot problems.
