How we can help you

How podiatry can help you

Here at Footmech Podiatry, Iain Johnston (Podiatrist) provides a comprehensive approach to foot health. We believe in a holistic approach to dealing with your problems in order to solve them quicker than one normally would with an isolated approach. The integration of biomechanics of the feet and legs, to spinal function, enables us to synergise treatment, with a view to a longer lasting result.


Footmech Podiatry provides treatment for most foot conditions, including the specialist laser therapy for fungal nail infections and verrucae . We are able to assess, diagnose and prescribe treatment for a wide range of foot and foot related complaints. Where necessary, referral may be necessary to find the best treatment pathway.
