    Experiencing a minor (hopefully)but uncomfortable foot/toe problem. Any recommendations for a Dublin or Maynooth based chiropodist?

    Bumping this. Looking for a chiropodist in Dublin. Any recommendation?

    Surely some of you have a chiropodist's number (like your physio's) on speed dial?

    In the end I just went to the Spectrum Foot Clinic in Drumcondra. They have branches all over Dublin and a few other towns. Didn't need anything too special (a bit of a paring of a callus on underside of toe, and a makeshift temporary toe-separator) and was happy enough with the no-fuss treatment I got.

    If anyone's looking for a chiropodist/podiatrist for a foot-mechanics problem (such as plantar, tendonitis etc) rather than the bunion/verucca sort of thing, then I recommend Justin Blake at www.podiatry.ie (that's him on their website page, I see). They have, or had, clinics in Dublin, although they're technically based in Dundalk. Excellent, and not at all a proponent of orthotics, splints or anything like that.

    Yep, I used Spectrum in Newbridge a couple of months ago and could recommend them highly.

    I'd recommend any runner, or anyone who is on their feet a lot to visit a podiatrist.

    Most will charge €40-€50 for the visit, and my God if you value your feet you'll love it.

    They'll do your nails, pair back any dead/hard skin. Moisturize your feet, check your gait etc and you'll come out feeling like you've been given a brand now pair of feet.

    Thanks all. Ended up going to a podiatrist - Mark Ryan of footfocus.ie. No complaints will lose my nail, but no biggie.
