If you are experiencing any toe, foot, ankle or lower limb pain, then it is likely you need to see a Podiatrist for assessment and diagnosis. Whether referred by another medical professional or you just want some advice and direction we endeavour to provide accurate treatment and care to maintain a high standard of recovery and rehab.
Podiatrists (also known as Chiropodists) are experts at assessing, diagnosing and treating problems with the foot and lower limb. Podiatry and chiropody differ, however most practitioners do both.
Chiropody is the treatment of ingrown toe nails, fungal nail infections, athletes foot, verrucas, corns, calluses and bunions. Podiatry is the analysis of the position and movement of your feet (called foot biomechanics) and how you walk (called gait).
Gait can be assessed with Plantar Pressure Gait Scan. This is a dynamic, weight-bearing scan of the feet during gait. It tracks the way pressure is transferred through your foot, and allows us to isolate individual areas of your foot and correct them with insoles (orthotics) and specific exercises. A podiatrist can also work with the physio’s and osteopaths on the team to work on improving your biomechanics and function.

About Our Podiatrist…
With all of the procedures undertaken in the clinical setting, the highest level of expertise and care are employed. Whether gait analysis, orthotic manufacture, nail surgery or simple chiropody, all aspects of the treatment are undertaken in professional surroundings with a holistic, patient focused approach.
As a fully registered and insured Podiatrist who has worked extensively with physiotherapists, Jack’s interest in treating the full body filters through to his patient and it is not uncommon to be referred to other specialists to ensure full and comprehensive care is achieved.
Jack has worked in all aspects of Podiatry from diabetic and wound care clinics, nail surgery and reconstruction, rehab and post-surgery care including acupuncture, ultrasound and laser therapies.
He has a keen interest in improving the environment for the foot to function in and uses a plantar pressure and plantar force platform to make sure we analyse the correct data to ensure this, therefore allowing insole/orthotic prescription manufacture and adjustment to achieve specific targeted results.
Jack Lidyard qualified from Brighton University as a Podiatrist in 2008 and immediately began working with athletes from an amateur to national level.
For any nail, skin, foot, orthotic or rehab questions, please contact myself or the clinic directly.
I could not recommend Wandsworth physiotherapy more highly. Both Steve and Sid were invaluable to my marathon preparation and because they offer a wide range of services including physiotherapy, acupuncture and sports massage they are able to treat people in numerous ways to get the best results.
These guys are fantastic! Really quick to reply and they found me an appointment on the same day. I've since had regular treatments with Alessio who is excellent, and my torn IT band, shoulder and other ailments are much improved. Brilliant for both sports injuries and wellness.
Booked an appointment for the same day on a Saturday. Adele has been very welcoming and helpful, providing useful advice as well as efficient treatment. Great local clinic, will definitely come back and recommend.
Great Physio. Adele is very knowledgeable and helpful. She knew exactly where the pain was and was able to fix it. Everyone is very friendly. It's definitely worth a visit if you have any sort of pain!
I've been several times for several different problems and Steve has always been excellent. He listens really carefully and asks good questions to find out exactly what's wrong, and is very clear with follow-up exercises to continue the therapy at home. Highly recommend him!
