Podiatry/Chiropody treatment is aimed at ensuring that the feet are as healthy and functioning as they should be. A Podiatrist is not concerned by how pretty a foot looks - we want the foot to function correctly and be as healthy as it can be!
Each Podiatrist at Epsom Downs Clinic is a member of The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and is registered with the Health Professionals Council.
When you visit a Podiatrist for the first time you will be asked some general questions about your health. Some health problems and medications affect the health of the lower limbs and feet.
Routine Podiatry/Chiropody treatment can help with the following problems:
Callus- This is an excessive build-up of skin (hyper-keratosis). Generally the cause is pressure. This pressure can come from various causes examples of these being foot wear & foot shape.
