About Podiatry and Chiropody
Podiatry (also known as chiropody) is the diagnosis and treatment by podiatrists (chiropodists) of diseases and other disorders of the feet. Podiatrists are highly skilled health professionals who have been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
Common foot problems:
- Athlete’s Foot
- Bunions/toe deformities
- Callus/hard skin
- Heel Pain
- Ingrowing Toenails
- Bio-mechanical problems affecting the foot, knee, hip or back.
Bio-mechanical assessments of the lower limb can be carried out and “off the peg” or custom made orthoses can be prescribed if required.
