The Undercroft Clinic
is an established practice in Temple Ewell, Dover, Kent.
Gaynor is a qualified Chiropodist/Podiatrist, Therapeutic Injectionist and Cosmetic Aesthetician, and is registered with the Health Professions Council. Gaynor is licensed to use local anaesthesia to perform minor surgery, including nail surgery for painful and infected ingrown toe nails, and electro surgery for skin lesions and stubborn verruca. Gaynor is also qualified in Prescription of Medicine and can, therefore, supply certain required medication during the course of treatment (eg. antibiotic cover for infection).
At the Undercroft clinic we also offer a treatment called prolotherapy. This is a well established medical injection technique that treats lax ligaments or injured tendons around the joints or muscle attachments. These injuries can cause a great deal of pain. Prolotherapy stabilizes and strengthens these injured areas and restores proper functioning by new collagen growth. Prolotherapy can also be used to help with osteoarthritic pain. Biopuncture is the injection of antihomotoxic medications and can reduce pain and spasm and stimulate healing. They can be helpful for acute, chronic or inflammed injuries, eg tennis elbow, sciatica, shoulder pain etc. and are extremely safe.
At the clinic we treat routine foot health problems, such as corns and callus, as well as looking after patients who have diabetes and require vascular testing, biomechanical scanning and prescriptive or over-the-counter insoles (orthotics) and nail surgery. LCN Wilde-Pedique nail reconsruction is available for patients with damaged, permanently removed or fungally infected nails. They last for approximately 8 weeks.
Gaynor is also a qualified medical acupuncturist. Acupuncture can be used to treat many problems such as muscle and joint pain, migraine, sinus problems etc. Dry needling, under local anaesthesia, can be extremely effective for treating stubborn verrucae. This is offered at the clinic.

If you would like to experience reflexology, we also offer this therapy at the Undercroft Clinic. Reflexology is an holistic therapy which encourages the natural healing of the body. Reflexology works on the feet, which represent a 'mini map' of the body. By working on specific areas, the body is encouraged to heal and balance. It is a very relaxing therapy and is suitable for everyone.
The clinic also provides skin and facial rejuvenation using a variety of different treatment. Please visit the page on aesthetic treatments for further information.
