At Sum of Us we know that feet are the vital foundations of our body and that caring for them can have a huge effect on physical and mental health.
We help people with heel pain, bunions, difficult nails, skin conditions, corns and calluses and much more! We care for people across a range of ages from children to older adults and provide a range of different therapies including massage, foot mobilisation, dry needling and orthotics (insoles).
Podiatrists are foot specialists trained to diagnose the pain in your feet, toes, and ankles.
We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to provide your feet with the care to ensure they feel amazing. We have a special interest in human movement and use technology to understand how your feet function and how to improve it.
