Chiropody is the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of the feet and lower limbs. And Chiropodists are highly trained medical practitioners who are trained to treat injuries and other conditions relating to your feet and lower limbs.
When walking hurts, mobility isn’t the only thing that suffers.
- The rest of the body is under stress, from your knees to your hips.
- It can be a sign of a more serious medical condition.
- And conditions such as diabetes require regular expert attention.
When should I see a chiropodist?
It’s not recommended that you wait until you’re experiencing pain. Instead, think of your chiropodist like your dentist and see them regularly to ensure your feet are in top condition. Regular chiropody appointments will also help to prevent future problems.
Susan Vaughan is our resident Chiropodist and Podiatrist. (Podiatrist being the modern name used, although we prefer chiropody and chiropodist).
What can I expect from a chiropody appointment?
At your initial appointment, Susan will identify the factors causing or contributing to your discomfort or pain and then recommend the appropriate treatment.
In addition, Susan works closely with the physiotherapy team – because your feet are the foundation of the rest of your body.
- Routine and regular chiropody treatment includes:
- General chiropody includes the removal of hard skin, corns, and calluses
- Nail cutting service
- In growing toenail care
- General foot care advice
Painful feet? Diabetes? Contact Susan. No medical referral is needed.
