Foot care with an HCPC registered Podiatrist is a speciality which aims to tackle problems that would otherwise affect your mobility, independence, or cause you to experience pain and discomfort, which is often unnecessary. Whether it is simple nail care, hard skin, corns, or any of the other issues associated with feet that you experience, the aim is to remove these problems, making you feel better and generally more comfortable. Podiatry is often called Chiropody.
We strongly believe in offering quality, personalised treatment, we are passionate about ensuring that you get the appropriate advice that will help you to take care of your feet. Often, simple suggestions, changes and routines are what make the biggest difference to foot health.
Diabetes is currently one of the biggest challenges facing the healthcare system in relation to feet. We firmly believe prevention is better than cure and work with patients to ensure issues do not escalate. Our Podiatrist works to Government guidelines on diabetic assessments, and where appropriate, patients are referred to Allied Health Professionals within the NHS.
As we go through life, foot/nail shape and appearance often change and whilst people are often self-conscious about this, it is perfectly normal and something we see every day. Please be assured that whatever the issue, it is probably more common than you think.
By visiting us in this modern, bright, and friendly practice, you can be assured that the excellent facilities will allow us to offer you the best quality of treatment, in a professional specialist environment. Some patients and relatives combine attending physio with a podiatry appointment for their convenience. If it is not possible for you to attend the practice for any reason, we can arrange for a home visit where required.
