When the foot hits the ground, forces impact on the foot not only from the ground but also from our bodies. The foot’s main job is to absorb these forces and still provide the ability for us to walk on two legs smoothly and efficiently.

Joints, muscles, bones and most commonly, skin can suffer from the over use or sudden misuse of our feet.

Podiatrists will look at the interaction of lower limb joints both in motion and non-motion. This is known as Biomechanics (Gait Analysis).

Biomechanics is study of the movement of the bones and muscles and how they affect our walking, running and standing posture.

Orthotics/Insoles and Neuro–Taping are used to alleviate many movement and pain dysfunctions.

Podiatry also encompasses systemic disorders that affect the feet. Diabetes, arthritic and rheumatological conditions, circulatory, nervous and musculoskeletal disorders are all taken into account when necessary.

I saw Tim today, I have been struggling with excruciating pain in the balls of my feet for over 2 years. I have tried every Metatarsal pad, and shoe insole on the market and nothing seemed to work. I have been struggling for 2 years to get help from the NHS. I called Tim and he offered to help me the next day! Tim was so lovely and caring. He really took the time to properly look at my feet to see what the problem was. Within 20 minutes he said I probably had Morton's Neuroma. He put a pad under my foot and the pain was gone immediatly. Tim I cannot thank you enough for helping me today, if there was a option to rate you 1000 I would!
You didn't charge me to help me and I cannot thank you enough! I honestly cried when I got home, for the first time in 2 years I could walk without pain. I will definitely be coming back if I have anymore problems with my feet, and I would highly recommend Tim to anybody! 😍

I saw Tim for some treatment for two verruca's, after a course of a few visits I managed to clear the area free of any verruca's and they haven't come back, thanks Tim, great work and advice.

I saw Tim for a podiatry consultation. He was thorough, knowledgeable and friendly. I'm delighted that he got to the bottom of my foot & ankle pain. He even went above and beyond to deliver orthotic insoles to me. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

I had a ingrown toenail, that made it hard to walk in any shoes, Tim suggested that I have surgery which I did and I haven’t had a problem since. Surgery was 2years ago, A cool friendly guy, always a pleasure, does great work every time. 🍻Tim

I had a verruca for about 6 years and starting trying the usual chemist remedies eventually which only made it bigger to the point where I decided to seek treatment from Tim. He used needling which was relatively painless and cleared most of the by this time quite large verruca within a short time. The rest was treated with an acid preparation and I was at last verruca free. In the past I’ve had much longer courses of treatment for this complaint and the needling was quite the easiest, kindest and quickest way to deal with the problem and I’d certainly use it again. Thanks Tim for offering this treatment.

I saw Tim Hawes for a running related foot compliant. He took time to carefully analyse not just the foot itself but the overall bio-mechanical situation and gave me comprehensive advice related to exercise and stretching and footwear. I definitely felt that he went the extra mile and that he genuinely cared about the outcome. Thank you!

I saw Tim to get replacement insoles. He was extremely thorough and professional in his approach. The new insoles fitted perfectly and my back continues to be great.

Tim treated my daughter's stubborn verrucae, he was very approachable, knowledgeable and professional, he tried a number of different treatments and persevered with them. Once the verrucae were manageable he advised us on home treatments with regular check ups to monitor them. It was very reassuring seeing Tim and a major relief when he finally confirmed they were gone. I found his advice invaluable and i would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a chiropodist.

Had a problem with my left foot for six years and could not walk without pain. I was treated by Tim Hawes, and given exercises to do and now I can walk well and for pleasure. It’s been liberating.

Saw Tim today for removal of areas of hard skin on the soles of my feet. Excellent treatment and advice. Felt a lot more comfortable after the treatment. Highly recommended. Thanks Tim.

Tim Hawes carries out home visits for my elderly grandmother and provides an excellent service, my grandmother is always comfortable with him and says there is never any discomfort or pain. Tim is very professional and at the same time kind and patient, I would highly recommend his treatments to anyone.

I went to see Tim about my foot, it had been really hurting and he sorted it, it stopped being painful immediately!
He was really lovely to deal with. I would recommend.

I have been receiving a chiropody treatment at Ashlins for general maintenance of my feet. It has helped me with corns and hard skin , the treatment was great and the information I received was very useful.

I had an appointment today for a chiropody treatment to help with general things and I found the treatment most beneficial. Kibri was warm and welcoming, while carrying out the treatment in a professional and competent way; I felt pampered.

I came in to see Kibri about the weakening of both feet as well as my posture, I found the treatment great and the information she gave me very useful.

Today I saw Tim Hawes for a chiropody treatment. I have Dry skin callouses and apparently a Fungal nail infection. After the treatment I felt so much better. All the dry skin has been removed from many areas and a few that I didn't even notice. He took time to treat my fungal infection. Tim is a very knowledgeable therapist. He was very gentle treating my feet, he also gave me lots of advice in regards to my health issues. He is very professional and I highly recommend him.
