About Chiropody/Podiatry Chiropodists, also known as podiatrists, are trained to assess, diagnose, and treat abnormal conditions of the lower leg and foot area. Whether a dermatological problem, chronic disorder, or anomaly in anatomical structure, podiatrists aim to treat these complaints using orthotic devices, minor surgery under local anaesthetic, or the simple application of skin cream. Keeping themselves on their toes, patients from all walks of life can also turn or pirouette towards practitioners of chiropody for advice on proper foot and nail care.

G: Does the centre offer any unique or specialist treatments? The biomechanical assessment - It looks at posture, foot and leg function, and the alignment and movement of joints.
