Sarah O’Donnell set-up Stepwise Chiropody Clinic in 2005, alongside its sister clinic Footmatters Podiatry Clinic that was opened in 1999. So 21 years later we are a busy practice helping over 6,000 patients a year keep their feet and lower legs in good shape and pain free.

We have a wonderful team of highly qualified practitioners who offer care, advice and routine chiropody and foot care, and because they have their own specific skill sets, we can offer a wide scope of practice for all sorts of foot and lower leg problems.

As well as routine Chiropody which includes nail cutting, ​corns therapy, hard skin removal (callus), In-growing toenails and Verruca therapy, we offer specialist care for people with foot problems due to diabetes, arthritis and sports injuries (although you don't need to be a sports person to suffer from a sports injury!)

Whatever your problem is, we can help you understand why you may be sufffering and find a solution that will provide a long-term fix.
