Painful Feet

Most people at some stage suffer from painful feet. Many foot conditions can be treated by an experienced podiatrist/chiropodist.

If you have a foot problem simply ring up and speak to one of the secretaries who will book an appointment to receive friendly and professional treatment.

What is a Podiatrist
and a Chiropodist

Podiatrists provide comprehensive advice and treatment in all areas of foot health. They also are specialists in the way we walk (gait analysis) and are able to give advice and treatment on all aspects of foot pathology. You may well be confused as to the difference between the terms chiropodist and podiatrist. There is no difference they are essentially the same word. In the UK podiatry is simply the new name for chiropody. The name was changed to podiatry in the early 90's as it's the internationally recognised term for a foot specialist and also as it's slightly more appropriate as "podiatry" refers to just feet while "chiropody" refers to both feet and hands. Essentially podiatry is the modern term for the experts in feet and foot care.
