What is a Podiatrist?
Podiatrists treat and diagnose disorders, diseases and injuries of the foot and lower leg.
These will range from corns, calluses, ingrown toe nails, nail irregularities, heel pain, big toe problems, foot and ankle injuries, infections, and routine foot care; also foot complaints associated with diseases such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.
Treatment of these conditions can include; insoles and orthoses using plaster casting techniques, simple surgery under local anesthetic, cryotherapy for verrucaes, strengthening and rehabilitation therapies.
Who visits the podiatrist?
Anyone & everyone, no matter what age you are! We treat young children with verrucaes, ingrown toenails to collapsing arches.
People suffering with blisters and calluses, sports people & patients needing orthoses (foot supports) after hip, knee or foot surgery.
And generally patients of all age groups requiring regular foot maintenance.
What’s the difference between a podiatrist and a chiropodist?
Today’s Podiatrists were yesterday’s chiropodists.
We have now been renamed to re-align with the rest of Europe & the USA, with the term “pod” deriving from the Latin for feet.
Be sure that your podiatrist is state registered SRCh with SOCP (The Society of Chiropodists & Podiatrists) as this professional body monitors all its members for high medical & professional standards.
