Chiropody is a specialized field of medicine which focuses on the assessment, treatment and prevention of foot and foot related conditions ranging from skin and nail problems to biomechanical problems affecting the feet.
Chiropody assessment seeks to understand not only the presenting symptoms but also any underlying cause. This is achieved through examination, discussion and accurate assessment to come up with a treatment plan to suit individual needs.
Some conditions can be resolved quickly, while others may require periodic maintenance to keep the feet comfortable.
Commonly treated problems include: corns and callous, thickened and ingrown toenails, skin infections/athletes foot, diabetic and arthritic foot problems, plantar warts, heel and arch pain, metatarsalgia.
Orthotic therapy: For some structureal conditions, orthotics may be necessary to provide functional improvement or biomechanical correction to relieve stress in the feet, knees, hips or low back.
Custom molded foot orthotics are manufactured from a corrected plaster cast of the foot, this ensures that the finished device fits accurately to promote the most efficient functioning possible, which in turn reduces symptoms of pain and fatigue.
