Verrucae treatment Wimbledon

Our Wandsworth clinic in Earlsfield has recently upgraded its cryotherapy (freezing machine) for the effective treatment of verrucas. We now freeze the verrucas to very cold temperatures which can only be achieved by specialist equipment, not over the counter verruca freezing treatments.

Verrucas by nature, are very hard to treat. But with easy transport links to Tooting, Clapham and Balham our clinic is achieving some remarkable results in the treatment of this very common condition.

Book a new patient assessment today to first have your verrucae diagnosed correctly and then have a treatment plan discussed to solve your problem.

    Sporting events to sign up to

    The team at South West Podiatry cannot help but highlight the events that our team of Podiatrists have signed up to this year. Our senior podiatrist Simon Adam has signed up to:

    Heywards Heath Triathlon: http://www.hedgehogtri.co.uk/web/hedgehogtri/ardingly.html Apparently the cycle leg on this event is up and down all the way, So it might be time to do some more training around Richmond Park!

    Tough Mudder: http://toughmudder.co.uk/ Simon has never done anything like this before. He has run the London Marathon and undertaken the London Triathlon many times but nothing like this before. The website says you will be electrocuted and have to climb in bins of ice which doesn’t sound very nice at all.

    Cycling London to Paris: South West Podiatry is proud to support Simon (and a few of his friends) as they cycle from London to Paris to raise money for sick children. The event is a quadriceps burning 325 mile event which will require many laps of Richmond Park. Please feel free to sponsor Simon and his team at http://www.action.org.uk/action_london_paris

    There are so many events in and around London for anyone to get involved with. From 500m charity runs all the way to the London Marathon. So many of our patients develop some injury which can easily be prevented or resolved allowing them to get back into training and finish the event they started. If you have a running injury or cycling injury please get in contact with us and we can help you back on the road.

    Ps. If you see Simon running the roads of Wandsworth or Surrey please say hi.

    Marathon Podiatry

    Your London Marathon training program should be well underway. Some of our podiatry patients are coming close to running their longest runs over the next few weekends though Richmond and the other Royal Parks.
    Running Marathons can take its toll on your body. Knee injuries, stress fractures and heel pain can all arise from poor biomechanics and uneven gait. Sometimes even the most simple insole can offload areas of the foot and prevent injury.
