Putting a spring in your step

Nobody should have to suffer with painful feet. Problems with feet often lead to problems throughout the body, so it is important to take good care of yourself from the ground up.

With more than 20 years of experience, Anthony Mason of the Bear Foot Chiropody and Podiatry Practice is able to help his patients achieve pain free feet.

While for the majority of people Anthony is able to solve a huge range of problems including fungal nails, cryosurgery for verrucae, corns and calluses, there is sometimes the need to perform nail surgery.

Anthony is now able to provide a full nail surgery service, a highly successful technique to treat painful nail conditions which may have become ingrown or infected.

“I have found that many golfers experience pain as they twist on their foot during a golf swing. Often by removing a small section of the nail to create a narrower toe nail is all that is needed to allow them to continue to play without any pain,” said Anthony Mason.

He added: “The operation is performed under a local anaesthetic and patients walk out after the procedure with minimal discomfort.”

The procedure is usually undertaken at the Family Medical Centre in Quinta do Lago. However, Anthony Mason also has out-patient clinics in Albufeira and now in Santa Bárbara de Nêxe as well as his own practice in Amendoeira, near Loulé.
