What is podiatry?

Podiatry is a specialist area of healthcare, allied to medicine which involves care and maintenance of foot and lower limb conditions. Podiatrists are also known as chiropodists by some people.
The aim of the podiatrist is to improve the independence, mobility and general quality of life of our patients.
A podiatrist can treat on a whole host of foot and foot related conditions including:
·         Heel pain
·         Achilles tendon injuries
·         Arch pain
·         Shin pain
·         Metatarsal and big toe joint pain
If your feet hurt then this can be your body telling you that there is something wrong. Foot problems can also be prevented by visiting a podiatrist regularly for a foot health check-up. Remember prevention is always better than a cure!

We offer podiatry at our Shefford clinic with prices starting at £30.
