What is Foot Health?


What is the difference between a Chiropodist / Foot Health Practitioner?

In theory none, Chiropodist are being replaced by Foot Health Practitioners (FHP), i.e. you can no longer train in chiropody. In general terms, most Chiropodists will have been in practice longer than a FHP, therefore, again in general terms, will have more experience and if proactive will have additional skills that they have trained in.

Both Chiropodists and FHP's will perform nail trims and nail reduction, ingrown nail treatment, callus and corn removal, verruca treatment / advice, are able to treat diabetic patents and be able to treat and offer advice on a number of different ailments of the nails, skin (such as athletes foot) and foot care in general.

All of these services are available with all our therapists and when you call for an appointment you will be asked some basic questions about your feet to ensure you are placed with the right therapist for you.

What is a Podiatrist?

To train as a Podiatrist (Pod) you have to do a 3 year degree course, a Pod can do all that a Chirpodist/FHP can do, but are more likely to do the more serious foot health issues, they can do minor operations to resolve issues and will ideally be able to offer local anesthetic, as pain relief.

Wilde Pedique Toe Nail Reconstruction

We also offer Wilde Pedique Toe Nail Reconstruction - which is a specialist gel that is flexible and can be trimmed as the nail grows, contains fungicides which may help with fungal infection of the nails and is very long lasting, helping the natural nail to grow, whilst protected by the gel. All our therapists offer this treatment

FootBalance Custom Insoles

FootBalance Insoles support your feet properly by putting your feet in the neutral position, aiding a balanced stance and correct body posture.

The feet act as a platform for your entire body. Often muscles and joint pain in the back, hips, knees and ankles stem from incorrect alignment of the feet. Studies have shown that orthotics help to address the alignment issues behind many injuries. Poorly fitting insoles place your feet in an unhealthy position, impairing foot function and mobility. They are uncomfortable can cause pain and bruising to the arches. Custom moulding is the only way to guarantee a perfect fit.

If you suffer from:

Planter Fasciitis- Achillies Tendonopathy- Painful Feet- Collapsed Arches- Low Back Pain- Shin Splints- Burning sensation under the balls of the feet. FootBalance Insoles maybe the answer!

30 day 100% Comfort Guarantee. Large range to choose from.
