Podiatry (Chiropody) Self Referral

Podiatry (previously known as Chiropody) is a health-care profession that provides a comprehensive foot-health service for conditions affecting the lower limb.  Podiatrists assess, treat and advise patients with foot-health disorders, in order to maintain and maximise their quality of life through measures that help feet function normally, without discomfort.  Podiatry is invaluable in the diagnosis and treatment of many types of foot pains, nail problems, verrucae (warts), and biomechanical problems,  where the shape of the foot or the pattern of walking is causing pain in the lower limb in general.
