We get asked all the time what the difference is between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist. Quite simply, Podiatry is the new term for Chiropody. Chiropody has traditionally been a nail cutting service, and while nail care is something that we do offer, the work of a Podiatrist is more medically based. As Podiatrists, we have trained at university for four years and we are qualified in all areas of foot health care. This includes minor foot surgery, prescribing medication, acute wound care, diabetic foot care and injecting local anaesthetic. In simple terms, we are foot experts!

What is a biomechanical assessment?
