Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between podiatry and chiropody?
There is no difference between podiatry and chiropody. They are two different words describing the same profession. A podiatrist or chiropodist will assess and treat your feet in the same way.

Who benefits from podiatry?
We see people of all ages with different conditions. There is a common misconception that it is only elderly people that need treatment for their feet. In fact, we see a vast range of people from children with ingrown toenails to athletes with sports injuries.

What conditions can podiatrists treat?
Podiatrists can help with most problems that concern the foot and lower limb. This can range from simple nail cutting to minor surgery for ingrown toenails. ‘Flat feet’ can be a cause of back, hip, knee and ankle pain. Podiatry can resolve these problems by correcting your foot posture with orthotics.

What can I expect when I receive podiatry treatment?
Each appointment with us involves a thorough assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management plan for you. Clear explanations regarding conditions will be given and thorough advice will be provided, this gives chance for discussion and for you to ask questions. Most treatment is painless and often instant relief is felt, particularly for superficial skin conditions.
