CHIROPODY
A Chiropodist is someone trained in the treatment of minor foot disorders and also provides general foot care advice. By working with other healthcare professionals, such as GPs, health visitors, physiotherapists etc., a chiropodist helps in a concerted approach to foot and healthcare within society.

A chiropody treatment may include the cutting of toenails, the removal of ingrown toenails, relief from nail trauma, callus, corns and the treatment of foot ailments such as verrucae, athletes foot, sweaty feet, foot odour and dry / cracked heels. In particular diabetics may require professional chiropody foot care.

Padding and strapping are provided where necessary. The person receiving the treatment may also be referred to a podiatrist for prescription orthotics or insole foot support.

In addition, a chiropodist trained in biomechanics, which is the study of posture and walking, is able to provide a biomechanical assessment to check for flat foot, heel pain, knee pain, bunions and other related foot problems.

The treatment is for people of all ages and is usually carried out in the clinic.
