Podiatry / Chiropody


What is podiatry?

Podiatry is the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of all foot problems. Some problems may have been inherited; some related to a medical condition and some associated with pressure from shoes. If we have foot problems this can affect the way we walk and can prevent us from carrying out our daily activities. It is important to manage these problems properly to allow us to stay as active as possible. What does a podiatrist do?

What do treatments involve?

All treatments involve taking a medical history (of any medical conditions and medication taken) and a full examination of the feet. Treatment options are discussed and advice given to help keep your feet comfortable and healthy.

A home visiting service is available for clients who aren’t able to come to the clinic.
