Suffer from foot problems? If you were to stop and think through the demands and strain your feet go through, it is not surprising that it could result in a foot problem. Having an untreated foot condition can lead to chronic long-term problems, which potentially could lead to surgery in later life. A Chiropodist examine the condition of your feet and come up with an effective treatment solution which will resolve your foot problems.

From corns and bunions to verrucae and painful heels, everyone encounters a problem with their feet at some point. Fortunately, our approach to chiropody works in your favour. With a speedy diagnosis and gentle treatments, we’ll get you back on your feet again.

When A Chiropodist Can Help

There are a number of everyday foot problems that a chiropodist/podiatrist can help with, the most common being bunions, corns and verrucae, as well as nail conditions, heel pain and ingrowing toenails. People who suffer from complaints such as diabetes or have bone deformations that come with conditions like arthritis will also benefit from regular visits to a chiropodist.

Diabetics should be seeing a professional such as chiropodist every month as conditions such as foot ulcers and sores that go septic can be a serious problem and in extreme cases could even lead to amputation. People suffering from diabetes unfortunately can have a dulling of their pain receptors which means they often can’t feel if something is wrong or not. That means damaged areas of the foot may be left until they become infected.

For those without an obvious medical condition to worry about, regular check-ups and maintenance can help stop problems from occurring. For the rest of us, removing bunions, verrucae, callouses and corns, or treating a fungal infection, can make our feet more attractive and walking more comfortable. Plus cutting those nails properly can stop conditions such as ingrowing toenails from forming.

Whilst visiting a nail bar or beauty salon might make your feet look attractive for a short while, a qualified chiropodist or podiatrist can make sure you look good but help ensure you are also in tip top foot health at the same time.

What Does a Chiropodist Do?

The role of a foot doctor is to treat and alleviate common foot problems that can hinder mobility and cause pain. People of all ages and health can seek chiropody treatment. A foot doctor will provide general foot care knowledge to help them maintain healthy feet in the future. With the right care and advice, patients can learn to take better care of their feet and avoid further problems.

Many chiropodists choose to specialise in specific areas of foot care. This means they can supply a range of treatment options and foot health advice. For example, some are trained in biomechanical analysis. This involves the study of feet alignment and structure and how these elements affect posture and motion.

Benefits of Chiropody

Many people seek chiropody treatment to alleviate pain and lingering health problems associated with the foot. However, you can choose to have regular sessions with a foot doctor as part of a healthy foot care regime. Even if your feet are generally in good condition, a chiropodist can help to prevent the onset of ailments. They will also keep an eye out for any changes in mobility, foot alignment and architecture.

Chiropody treatment is ideal for those who cannot implement effective self-care of their feet, such as elderly patients and children. Diabetics and patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis will also benefit from regular treatment. These types of conditions can place the foot at a greater risk of complications that can take longer to heal.

Your first appointment at Norfolk Clinic is a combination of both a consultation and the treatment. Medical history and consent forms will need to be completed by the patient and reviewed with the Chiropodist. Then a complete examination and assessment of your feet will be conducted, looking for and checking for lesions, corns, calluses, warts, moles, wounds, ulcers. The circulation, sensation and colour of your feet will also be considered.
