How To Get Rid Of Your Child’s Verrucae

Are you tired of trying every treatment in the book to get rid of your verrucae? After a while, many people decide to give up looking because they’ve tried a variety of solutions that have all been ineffective.

 

We know how frustrating and sometimes painful verrucas can be which is why our Podiatrists now offer the most advanced and effective verrucae treatment available – Swift Microwave treatment.

 

Although anyone can develop verrucae, they are particularly prominent in children and can be easily picked up in a school gym or a communal swimming pool.

 

So if you suspect that yourself or your child has verrucae on their feet, then this could be the solution you’ve been waiting for.

 

 

Not sure if you have a verruca? No problem. At  your appointment, one of our Podiatrist will assess your feet and confirm whether Swift is the right form of treatment for you.

If you’d like to get started with Swift, please call us on 01380 730473. *Please note: This treatment is currently available in our Devizes clinic only.

How Can Physiotherapy Help You?

Did you know that GP’s recommend more patients to Physiotherapy than any other health profession? This is because Physiotherapists can help you maximise your health and wellbeing throughout your life.

 

Physiotherapy is well known for helping athletes prevent and manage their injuries but they also do so much more than that – especially when it comes to preventing physical age-related issues.

 

If you want to stay healthy and active as you age, here are a few ways that a Physiotherapist can help you:

 

Manage Your Pain
A high percentage of the population suffers from varying degrees of pain or discomfort on a daily basis, and this can get progressively worse as you age. For some, it’s an irritating niggle that comes from time to time and for others, it’s chronic pain that hinders them from living a fulfilling life.

Most forms of pain can be treated or at least managed with the support of a Physiotherapist, and not just in the short term. With the right advice, pain can be managed long term meaning your life won’t be dictated by your pain. Instead, you can take back control of your own body and get back to doing the things you love.

 

Avoid Surgery
The thought of surgery for many of us is extremely daunting, and although certain injuries require surgical intervention, there are many occasions when it can be avoided with the support of Physiotherapists.

Physiotherapists can help manage or eliminate your pain by improving your overall physical fitness, making you stronger and your body more resilient.

If you’ve had surgery in the past, you may have been recommended to see a Physiotherapist as part of your post-surgery treatment, as they play a key part in getting you back on your feet as soon as possible.

 

Prevent Injury
If you are prone to injury, then a Physiotherapist can perform a simple movement screen to highlight the strong and weak areas of your body. They’ll then use this information to put together a specific exercise programme to strengthen your body and reduce your risk of falling or getting injured. This will also improve your rate of recovery should you injure yourself in the future.

 

Looking after your body becomes ever more important as you age. A healthy and active lifestyle provides you with a choice – a choice to do the things you love without pain and with confidence.

With seven expert Physiotherapists across our three clinics in Devizes, Marlborough and Frome, we’re here to help you prioritise your health. To find a time that suits you, please contact us on 01380 730473 or book online.

Why Should I Have Regular Massage?

Massage is well known for relieving stress and helping you to relax. Both of which are true, but massage also does so much more than that!

 

Happy, Healthy You
Massage boosts your body’s natural ability to produce Serotonin (often known as the happy hormone) which improves your mood, leaving you feeling happier and ready to take on the world!

 

Reduce Muscle Tension
Regular massage helps to release any painful ‘knots’ in your body and improve your flexibility and range of movement. This means that you’ll be able to get back to your everyday activities without pain or discomfort.

 

Improves Sleep
Having that hour of ‘you’ time to unwind, relax and let your mind wander can leave you feeling calm and at ease, ready for a great nights sleep.

 

Injury Prevention
If you like to keep fit and active then massage is a fantastic way to reduce your risk of getting injured. Keeping on top of any muscle soreness is crucial to avoid injury which can stop you from doing the things you love.

 

With five expert massage therapists across all three of our clinics, it’s now even easier to fit a massage around your schedule, so don’t hold back from prioritising your health. You can book a massage online or contact your local clinic.
