BSc (Hons) Podiatrist
Gill Simmons gained Bsc (Hons) in Podiatry from Huddersfield Universirty in July 2010. She has a special interest in diabetes and biomechanics, Gill is HCPC registered and Holt Foot Clinic is a Society of Chiropodists & Podiatrists’ Registered Practice.
Our aim is to provide professional friendly services to enable clients to be as active as they want to be.
The following procedures and specialist services are available:
Nails come in all shapes and sizes; thick, brittle, fungal, involuted- (means more curved than your average nail and they can be deeply embedded in skin at the sides). At Holt Foot Clinic we can regularly manage and maintain nails so they don’t become painful. If you cut your nails too short, as it grows it can become ingrowing and get infected, we can deal with this too.
Callus also known as hard skin can be dry or glassy; both types can be painful and can split causing painful fissures especially around heels. Callus can be the bodies response to excessive friction.
There are five main types of corn.
At Holt Foot Clinic Limited we offer regular foot-care and foot monitoring for diabetics, or this can be combined with a diabetic pulse and sensation assessment where your GP is sent a copy, or either element separately.
Nails and skin can become infected with fungus. There are as many different presentations as there are mushrooms types, but most the most common is typically a yellow/brown thickening nail, crumbly underneath. Skin infections can range from athletes foot between toes, to itchy red pimples anywhere on the foot; Other presentations are available.
Feet come in as many shapes and sizes as different styles of shoe. It’s all about choosing the right style for your foot shape. Too narrow and your feet will rub up a corn at the small toe or maybe your painful bunion. Too wide it allows your feet to move too much in the shoe which can cause friction based callus/hard skin or corns. Your podiatrist can assess your foot shape and recommend features within a shoe which would cause the least amount of pain.
