Caring for your Feet
Caring For Feet
Feet deserve the best, as you depend on them for a lot! Treat your feet to regular care and treatment by a Podiatrist or Chiropodist.
A Podiatrist will identify and correct or prevent deformity, and maintain normal mobility and function. Podiatrists provide the basis for the ideal walking style and posture, and may recommend any medial or surgical condition that requires referral and management. They also can issue treatments to relieve pain, and treat infections, and skin, nail, soft tissue and connective tissue problems. This is often done in conjunction with or referral to other members of the healthcare team.
Podiatrists will also give expert advice on footwear, so it is a good idea to take a pair of shoes with you when you next see your Podiatrist.
Podiatrists and Chiropodists have to be registered with the Health Professionals Council, so if you are seeing someone privately, you can be confident of the practitioner’s proficiency, if they call themselves a Podiatrist or Chiropodist.
