Podiatrists 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. Chiropody is only a part of a podiatrist’s work. The podiatrist will be able to give you and your family advice on how to look after your feet and what type of shoes to wear. Our experts can also treat and alleviate day-to-day foot problems.
