Podiatrist

What is Chiropody/Podiatry?

A Podiatrist’s primary aim is to improve the mobility, independence and quality of life for their patients. Imagine how amazing that feels!

A Podiatrist is a trained healthcare professional specialising in the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal conditions of the lower limbs and feet.

​We tend to take our feet for granted but the foot is a highly complex structure that can develop problems that can affect a person’s overall health and well-being. There are 26 bones in each foot – a quarter of all the bones in the body! That’s something certainly worth paying attention to in terms of foot health and wellbeing.

​Podiatrists deal with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of foot and lower limb disorders. Podiatrists work with people of all ages including athletes, children and the elderly.

​Treatments ranges from simple nail care to nail surgery, from the mechanical correction of gait and posture to more complex surgical techniques. Effective practice requires a strong combination of practical skills and academic ability. They can also assist with cracked heels, painful feet, growths, thickened or discoloured toenails, or any other foot problems.

Treatments offered

  • surgical management of in-growing toenails
  • Diabetic foot assessments
  • Management of heel, midfoot or forefoot pain
