January 2021 Update on COVID-19
We are able to stay open during this lockdown. To make an appointment, please ring the practice as usual or contact us by email. I may not be able to answer the phone immediately, but please leave a message and I will ring you as soon as I can.
When you come for your appointment please wear a mask. There are hand washing facilities and hand gel in the waiting room for you to sanitise your hands when you enter the clinic and when you leave. As an extra precaution, when you come in to the clinic we will take your temperature. Between every contact we sanitise handles, rails and all surfaces which have been touched. We wear PPE and there is a screen between the podiatrist and patient during the appointment. We also keep observe social distance rules.
Please do not attend if you have been in contact with any person who has tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 14 days. Please also do not attend if you have a temperature, a new, persistent cough or if you have lost your sense of taste or smell.
Please take care and stay well.

Committed to Your Feet
From a simple nail cut to resolving a complex and painful condition, here at the Disley Podiatry Clinic your feet are in good hands. It is is our job to keep your feet healthy and happy.
The foot is a complex structure of bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons, in fact, a quarter of your body’s bones are contained in the feet; 26 in each!. So it is no surprise that at some point in our lives, 80% of us will experience foot problems.
At the Disley Podiatry Clinic we can provide relief from the wide variety of conditions affecting the foot and walking. As part of our podiatry service we carry out biomechanical assessments, with the provision of orthotics and insoles, to facilitate the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of abnormal conditions in the spine and lower limbs. We can also provide foot screening and foot care for people with diabetes.
We treat feet of all shapes and sizes with all kinds of problems. If you have a question, get in touch by telephone or use our online contact form. Your podiatrist will be happy to chat about how we can help your feet.
As Disley Podiatry is based on the Cheshire/Derbyshire border at the edge of the Peak District, we have a great deal of experience dealing with common rambling and walking feet complaints.
So we have patients from nearby Marple, Poynton, Hazel Grove, Macclesfield and across Cheshire and Derbyshire making a visit to our clinic part of their walking experience!
We can advise on your hiking shoes – we can check them to see if they are causing you any problems and discuss insole supports if they are required – we fully support you in your walking hobby so you can walk further, faster and in more comfort. Walking should be a healthy pursuit and we want to keep it that way for you!
And our care is not only from the ankles down! Foot problems can manifest in back problems too, so if you are finding walking becoming difficult, call us for an appointment so we can correctly diagnose your complaint.
