Chiropodists & Podiatrists treat a wide variety of foot and lower limb abnormalities, from corns, calluses through to arthritis, diabetic ulcers and sports injuries.
A Podiatrist or Chiropodist can help you with common foot problems, including ingrown toenails and bunions.
Podiatrists & Chiropodists are health care professionals who have been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
They can give you and your family advice on how to look after your feet and what type of shoes to wear. They can also treat and alleviate day-to-day foot problems, including:
You may want to see a podiatrist for advice and treatment if you have painful feet, thickened or discoloured toenails, cracks or cuts in the skin, growths such as warts, scaling or peeling on the soles, or any other foot-related problem.
Podiatrists can also supply orthotics, which are tailor-made insoles, padding and arch supports to relieve arch or heel pain. You put the orthotic device into your shoe to re-align your foot, take pressure off vulnerable areas of your foot, or simply to make your shoes more comfortable.
Even if your feet are generally in good condition, you might consider having a single session of podiatry to have the hard skin on your feet removed, toenails clipped, to find out if you’re wearing the right shoes (take your shoes with you for specific advice on footwear) or just to check that you’re looking after your feet properly.
Podiatrists can also help with more complex foot problems including preventing, diagnosing and treating injuries related to sports and/or exercise.
At your first appointment with a Chiropodist or Podiatrist at our wellness centre in Eastbourne, you will be asked about your medical history and current medications.
A podiatry assessment is completed (as recommended by the Society Of Chiropodists and Podiatrists) and you will have foot or toenail treatment options recommended for you and explained clearly before you decide to consent to them. For more information about the assessment read here
Recommended feet therapies and options will be explained to you before gaining your consent to treat you. Various assessments may be carried out to determine muscular- skeletal imbalances.
At all times our aim is to promote skin and nail health as well as mobile joint functioning for optimum health and wellbeing
