What is a Podiatrist?

A Podiatrist also known as Chiropodist is a Health Care Professional who specialises in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the feet and lower limbs. Our experienced Podiatrist is on hand to keep you mobile and active, relieve pain, treat infections as well as give you and your family advice on how to look after your feet.

Who may benefit from a Podiatry appointment?

Even if your feet are generally in good condition, you might consider having a single session with our podiatrist. For example, you may want to have any hard skin on your feet removed or have your toenails clipped.

Our podiatrist can also advise you products to use on your feet to help keep them in good condition as well as footwear and check that you're looking after your feet properly.

An annual foot check is advised for patients of all ages, even if there is no discomfort, simply to confirm that everything is fine and detect any conditions early on. On the other hand, whenever a foot hurts, you should always see a podiatrist.

What to expect during an appointment?

The podiatrist will ask questions about you and your overall health, check the blood supply and feeling of your feet and legs as well as the condition of your feet including any changes to foot shape and structure.

Our Podiatrist will talk you through your treatment and ask you to sign a consent form before treating you.

Before leaving you will be provided with foot advice and education as well as a relaxing foot massage.
