Routine Podiatry (Chiropody) Treatment

Of all the things we take for granted in life, one at the top of the list must surely be our feet

Our Feet help us balance, walk, run, and propel us the equivalent of 5 times around the earth’s surface in an average life time.

Our routine podiatry (formerly chiropody) assessment and treatment is suitable for all; young and old, in fact you may be surprised to find out that 9 out of 10 people will have experienced problems with their feet before the age of 30, so podiatry is not just a service for older individuals. Think of our routine podiatry treatment as much the same as a routine check-up with your dentist, but of course for your feet. Our podiatrists are specialists in the areas of the foot, ankle and lower limb complaints and have completed extensive training in these specific areas.
