My name is Vivien Honeyborne-Martins and I am a Cambridge graduate with a degree in Metallurgy and Materials Science, who taught sciences and maths for a while before finding my true calling in Podiatry.
As a fully qualified graduate chiropodist and podiatrist, I am able to provide you with some of the best foot care in Cambridgeshire in my podiatry practice, Stepwise Footcare in Burwell.
I provide a wide range of podiatry treatments ranging from everyday chiropody, biomechanical assessment and orthotic therapy to a highly specialised Lunula Laser treatment for fungal nail infections and Swift Microwave treatment for advanced treatment of resistant verrucas.
To this I have very recently added the revolutionary MotionMetrix 3D Markerless Clinical and Running Gait Analysis; available in very few places in the UK and in only one other mainland podiatry clinic. This is a very exciting new development which I intend to use primarily for research into design and mode of action of orthotic insoles, but available also to patients with foot/gait pathologies, and athletes wishing to optimise their performance.
I am a Member of the College of Podiatry (COP) and am registered as a podiatrist with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) giving you peace of mind you are getting the best treatment possible in your local area.
Having previously been a teacher of physics and maths, and having been a marathon runner myself, I have an exceptional and personal knowledge and insight into the biomechanical functioning of foot, ankle and leg. This makes me one of the leading practioners in the treatment of biomechanical problems, certain sports injuries and children’s foot and gait problems in the Cambridge area.
Clients also travel to my practice from much further afield, including King’s Lynn and Thetford in Norfolk; Royston in Hertfordshire, Saffron Walden in Essex and Haverhill and Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk and even from Italy!
I provide the following foot care services:
- General chiropody
- Nail surgery under local anaesthesia
- Biomechanical assessment
- Gait analysis including 3D Markerless Gait Analysis using new MotionMetrix system
- Insole/orthotic therapy, including bespoke orthotic insoles made on the premises using SIDAS Premier Station
- Children’s foot and gait problems
- Lunula Laser treatment for fungal nail infections
- Verruca treatments including new Swift Microwave treatment
General foot care is available to all who cannot manage their own feet for any reason.
I’m available five or six days a week including Saturday mornings. Call for an appointment on 01638 741973. Your call will be forwarded to my remote reception from 08.30hrs to 18.00hrs on weekdays and they can make appointments and answer queries.
