Chiropody and Podiatry
Chiropody is the total care of feet. It includes corns and
calluses, nail problems, verrucae and many other conditions.
Sports injuries, stress and biomechanical problems are also
covered. Our feet are made for walking, for running and dancing,
for working and playing, for balancing our lives. Yet they
are often taken for granted and we expect them to be there
at all times. Regular foot care and appropriate shoes can
help ensure they are functioning correctly and comfortable.
About chiropody and podiatry and your treatment.
Massaging the foot is an integral part of the treatment.
The importance of regular foot care can not be overstated.
Our feet are constantly overworked on hard man made surfaces
and yet, are quite often the most neglected part of the body.
The normal time allowed for a treatment is approximately 30
minutes. This includes a full examination of the foot and
compilation of a case history, which is in strict confidence.
Membership of the British Chiropody Association can only be
