For Feet which...
June 2020 Update on COVID-19
Following guidance from our Professional Body, we are now able to see regular appointments (green on our triaging system).
The health and safety of you and us is paramount. Infection control standards at our practice are always high, however, additional measures have been introduced.
Please do not come if you, or anyone you have come into contact with has symptoms of COVID 19, or if you are not 14 days clear. We will stay closed if we develop symptoms and stay off until 14 days clear if this happens.
Please wear a mask if you have one and wash your hands on entering the clinic. We will clean all surfaces touched between appointments and space slots, so that you don’t cross with other patients.
Thank you for your help and support.

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.
