Chiropody and Podiatry
- Chiropodists and podiatrists deal with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limbs (ankles and feet) and are qualified to treat people with flat feet, arthritis, diabetes, nail conditions and sports injuries.
- They play a particularly important role in helping older people to stay mobile and, therefore, independent.
- Custom orthotics and orthopaedic shoes can help correct the imbalances that problematic feet have caused on the body and offer comfort and support. It can also decrease tension in the ankles, knees and back and improve overall quality of life.
